• Hah! Team Obama Claims They “Got the Substance Right” on Paris

    Any criticism of President Obama’s absence from Paris during the Charlie Hebdo solidarity march last week is clearly bouncing right off of the administration. In fact, they’re now claiming that they “got the substance right“!

    Well, if by “substance” they mean making the United States president look selfish and disinterested in participating in a hugely symbolic international gesture, then yes, Valerie Jarrett is absolutely correct.

    Jarret, who is perhaps Obama’s closest confidant and adviser, appeared on CNN today, where she made the remark. She then went on to point out that Attorney General Eric Holder WAS in Paris, but skipped Sunday’s rally because he had “very important meetings to be at.” Sorry, Valerie, but that doesn’t actually count for anything.

    You can watch her comments in the clip above.
