'Muslim Killers' 'New York Post' Headline Draws Heat -- President Obama Says San Bernardino Shootings Could Be Terrorism

President Obama isn't ruling out terrorism in the San Bernardino shootings, as the president spoke somberly and candidly about the recent tragedy. As reported by Fox 17, President Obama said that the U.S. needs to make it harder -- not impossible -- for terrorists to get their hands on guns and harm people. However, the president's comments about the San Bernardino shootings are being usurped by a New York Post headline that reads "Muslim Killers," which can still be seen on the publication's main page -- along with articles titled "Muslim newlyweds slaughter co-workers who threw them a baby shower." According to the president's latest briefing, Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, had additional weapons at home discovered by police.

"We need to take basic steps to make it harder, not impossible, but make it harder for individuals to get weapons."

Why is Muslim killers trending? Wtf. Did you guys focus on the religion of white mass shooters? NAH. AGAIN YALL

According to Fox News, Farook's coworkers called him a polite man who worked mostly out in the field in his line of work as a health inspector. Colleagues said that Syed didn't show any signs of being radicalized upon his return from a month-long stay in Saudi Arabia.

Ironically, President Obama had commented on Wednesday about ISIS not being able to carry out a Paris-style attack, reports CNN. The president's comments came prior to Farook and his wife being identified as the shooting suspects in the San Bernardino shooting.

"ISIL will not pose an existential threat to us. They are a dangerous organization like al Qaeda was, but we have hardened our defenses The American people should feel confident that, you know, we are going to be able to defend ourselves and make sure that, you know, we have a good holiday and go about our lives."
