Prime Minister Abe Says “What Bad Luck!” When He Stops Playing Golf Due To Mudslide Disaster in Hiroshima
Prime Minister Abe has been criticized for his response to the disaster in Hiroshima. President Obama seems to be criticized for doing a similar thing on the same day. Criticism of former Vice President Dick Cheney and Hillary Clinton against Obama, although both of them do not seem to qualify to do so, will probably, I feel, prompt the Obama administration to launch a military intervention in Syria and Iraq.
By the way, Prime Minister Abe has been criticized as “human scum” for committing a blunder. This is very bitter criticism. I cannot use such harsh word. All I can say is that he is “crunchy bits of deep-fried *tempura.”
(Note)* Tempura carries a connotation of “fake.”

[Human Scum] Prime Minister Abe Says “What Bad Luck!” When He Stops Playing Golf Due To Mudslide Disaster in Hiroshima
There is no room for sympathy, though I want to sympathize with him.

(ANN News - Four People Killed in Mudslide Due to Heavy Rain in Senboku City, Akita Prefecture)
“Typhoon, heavy snow? I’ don’t care.”
Fool in Golf Course
Naoto Amaki, diplomatic analyst
Golf lovers can understand how much chagrined they feel when they are forced to stop playing golf at the last minute due to an unexpected accident.
Therefore, Prime Minister was not able to put the play out of his mind, either.
The column on movements of Prime Minister on August 20 reads as follows:
At 7:26, “Fuji Sakura Country Club” at Fuji Kawaguchiko Town, Yamanashi Prefecture. Golf with former Prime Minister Mori, Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Mogi, Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Nobuo Kishi and others
At that time, he must have got the initial report of the accident in Hiroshima. If not so, it’s a big problem.
However, he couldn’t make a snap decision and left for the golf course. He seemed to wait and see how things go while playing golf.
While playing, he finally stopped the game, grumbling “what bad luck!” because he thought that he would be criticized if continuing it.
It would be no problem if he had admitted honestly that he failed to take proper initial response to the disaster. He showed off his authority, saying “I have directed the whole government to address rescue and relief.
The media under the government’s thumb released it as it was told.
If this were the Murayama administration or Democratic Party administration, it would have strongly criticized him as if they had achieved a great feat. What a mess!
That’s why I get angry.
I can’t sympathize with him, though I want to do.
A liar cannot assume a position as prime minister.
It is natural that Prime Minister Abe is criticized for his response.

That is what we would expect from human scum Shinzo Abe. This exactly shows his human nature. He doesn’t care for life of the people. Golf has priority over disaster. No excuse holds water because he returned to the resort villa even after getting a full picture of the disaster.
Golf – Official residence – Resort villa – Emperor discontinued rest – Hurriedly returned to official residence – Haphazardly decided to visit afflicted areas
