Greta Van Susteren slammed President Obama Monday night, for allowing the press access to his golf game and allowing them to take photos.

Van Susteren pointed out that the photo was not spontaneous – rather a carefully “staged and choreographed” moment by the White House.

“Why would the president do this for the cameras? It’s one thing to take a vacation but is this pose shoving it down the throats of the American people?”  she asked. “Many are out of work. They can’t afford to spend the day working on their golf game in one of the most expensive places to vacation. Is this what leadership looks like?”

Van Susteren was joined by former Congressman Allen West, R-Fla., who agreed that the photo was “bad optics” for a leader.

“Greta, let me tell you something,” West said. “It’s like 133 degrees in Southern Afghanistan and guys have on all of their gear, helmets and what have you. They don’t get to take a five-week vacation.”
