Obama Broke Promise for Charity Donation, ISIS Hostage Family Says

President Obama will make a financial contribution to a memorial foundation for slain ISIS hostage Kayla Mueller, the White House said today, but a spokesperson couldn’t explain why he hasn’t donated in the 17 months since her parents say he made a heartfelt pledge to them.

Obama spokesperson Josh Earnest said the president “is aware” of the Kayla’s Hands foundation and added, “I would anticipate that they [the Obamas] would make a financial contribution to continue supporting it.”

Obama probably thought they meant donate to ISIS, that check is long cashed.

    I read a similar article where he is alleged to have said that he would make an anonymous donation.
    I gave an anonymous donation of a gazillion dollars, too.
