Holographic Reagan would have been classy

Or something.

In April 1980, President Carter ordered a raid to attempt to free the American hostages in failed spectacularly and tragically.

How'd Reagan react?

Reagan told a Los Angeles press conference, "This is a difficult day for all of us Americans. . . . It is time for us . . . to stand united. It is a day for quiet reflection . . . when words should be few and confined essentially to our prayers."
I am obviously not a Reagan fan, but that is how a competent politician does it.

That's the minimum standard we should expect from anyone aspiring to high office.
