• Watch Anderson Cooper And Letterman Lampoon Obama And Biden For Skipping The Paris March

    In a preview video clip of tonight’s episode of the Late Show, host David Letterman and CNN anchor Anderson Cooper discuss the terrorist attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, the Unity Rally in Paris, and how the Obama administration failed to send a high-ranking official to represent the United States.

    “And to see President Obama there was just extraordinary,” Anderson Cooper quipped.

    When Letterman asked why Obama didn’t rally along with all the other world leaders, Cooper said, “Or the vice president! I mean he spends weekends watching, like Gilmore Girls.

    Obama was actually busy watching football when dozens of world leaders and millions of people where marching in solidarity with Charlie Hebdo and free speech proponents and around the world.

    “According to an administration official,” the Daily Mail reports, “President Obama spent part of his Sunday afternoon watching a National Football League game on television. Both games were broadcast hours after the march.”

    “What a great statement it would have been, not only for this country, but for the global concern of this kind of attack, if the president himself had actually attended,” Letterman said.

    Cooper added that the ordeal was “certainly a missed opportunity” for the America.

    Tuesday, White House press secretary Josh Earnest admitted that Obama snubbing the rally was a mistake. “Some have asked whether or not the United States should’ve sent someone with a higher profile than the ambassador of France,” Earnest said. “And I think it’s fair to say that we should have sent someone with a higher profile.”
