The right weren’t the only ones baffled by the decision of President Barack Obama to sit with the ladies of ‘The View’ for an interview and talk about candy, but not having time in his schedule to meet with world leaders during the U.N. General Assembly, which is also taking place in New York City.
John Stewart, host of the Daily Show offered up one of his segments to take a jab at the POTUS and the logic involved in his recent scheduling decisions.
“Obviously, with Libya in turmoil, Syria in flames, Iran on the verge of a nuclear weapon, an incredible opportunity for our president — not just to address the world community — but some high level pres on pres action!”
Apparently this also marks the first time in 20 years that a sitting U.S. president has skipped out on the United Nations meeting for the chance to meet one-on-one with foreign leaders.
Not that the President shouldn’t be making time for ‘The View,’ or Letterman, or fund-raising with Jay-Z and Beyonce during an election season, because he should! But even during the campaign, there’s a job to do. A job he’s trying to get a second go-at!
