‘He won’t’: Montel Williams asks Obama to ‘make the call today!’ [video]


Obama swapped deserter Bowe Berghdal for terrorists who have killed Americans, won't call Mexico to release a Marine who saved Americans.

Military veteran Montel Williams delivered an impassioned opening statement at a House hearing today about Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, the U.S. Marine being held in Mexico.

Williams later challenged President Obama to “make the call today” to the president of Mexico to arrange Tahmooressi’s release. If Obama wouldn’t call the president of Mexico, Williams said he should call Tahmooressi’s mother, who was sitting next to Williams at the hearing:

"Make the call!" @Montel_Williams wants President Obama to call President of Mexico http://t.co/251hAFrmrB

I'm with @Montel_Williams. Tell President "Pen and Phone" Obama to pick up that phone, call the Mexican President, and get our marine home!

Will Obama “make the call today”? Confidence is low:

@KatiePavlich I don't believe president Obama has the character necessary to make the call

@KatiePavlich only uses his phone if he feels it will benefit him.

@JhHegg @KatiePavlich you could be right though, he traded 5 Taliban terrorists for a deserter. #bowebergdahl

@KatiePavlich he won't. no political benefit in it for him.

@KatiePavlich You would think he would look at how low he polls with Military vets, etc. that he would use this for a photo op.

@KatiePavlich he's not doing it only to spite Americans

@katiepavlich Obama's character ( or lack of) comes shining through this case.

Because a prisoner exchange would require sending Mexicans back to Mexico @KatiePavlich
