Twitter Explodes With Criticism of Obama After He Called Four Dead Americans in Benghazi 'Not Optimal

Almost immediately after pool reports indicated that President Barack Obama called the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi "not optimal" during the taping of "The Daily Show," social media exploded with outrage over the president's remarks.

The backlash was almost instantaneous -- and it was brutal. The clumsy phrase from Obama gave birth to the #NotOptimal hashtag on Twitter, which was trending nationwide as of 7:30 p.m. ET.
