Obama has been receiving worldwide criticism for his absence at the massive rally in France that brought together more than 40 world leaders. The historic rally was attended by leaders from Europe, Africa, the Middle East and even Russia, in a show of solidarity against the devastating terrorist attacks which rocked the City of Love. The fact that Obama’s face was not among those in the influential crowd was startlingly clear, and the reason why is only going to make him look like more of an incompetent jerk (if that’s even possible).
According to an administration official, Obama spent his Sunday engrossed in an NFL game. Priorities, priorities…
The President also neglected to send a member of his administration to represent the United States at the rally. Vice President Joe Biden skipped the event, though MailOnline reports that his public schedule was wide open.
