As cellphones buzzed across the country and news alerts informed the public that an airbase in Iraq was attacked, Americans naturally looked to the President for some kind of clarity and with deep trepidation over what the response would be. They would get none, however; the President’s planned address to the nation was abruptly canceled.

Social media was not impressed with his response:
