In a jab at rhetoric coming from GOP frontrunners like Donald Trump, Obama said Tuesday that "when politicians insult Muslims, when a mosque is vandalized, or a kid bullied, that doesn’t make us safer. That’s not telling it like it is ... it's just wrong."

Rohrabacher said the section of the President's speech "was very disturbing."

"He is trying to recommend to us how we should feel about that faith. I think he was insulting every American who is not Islamophobia [sic], but is very concerned about what is going on," Rohrabacher said.
