Jon Stewart: Obama Absence, Paris Rally (Video)

Not all Leftists are happy with the way Obama has handled the aftermath of the Islamist terror attack at the Charlie Hedbo offices in Paris.

Here's Jon Stewart's reaction to the French Unity Rally and the lack of presence by the U.S., beginning at about 3:42:

JON STEWART: How could Obama not be there??? Look how many world leaders he could have bowed down to and apologized! He missed an opportunity.

How could the U.S. not be there, when representatives of such beacons of freedom and lack of censorhip as journalist-punishing Russia was there? Journalist-jailing Turkey was there. Egypt - 'nough said. Palestinian cartoonist-jailing Israel was there. And of course, our greatest ally, Saudi Arabia was there, although a little out of breath, having just days ago flogged a blogger.

Couldn't Obama have at least sent a friend?


OK. All right. There you go. All right, I'm sorry. I jumped to conclusions. Eric Holder, the top law official in the United States, our attorney general -- I mean, come on, France. Holder's not good enough for you? You guys are only happy with 'Le Grand Fromage'?


What the f---???

Eric Holder, you were in France, in Paris, at the time of the march, and were like [Looks at his watch], heh. Oh, I get it. You were probably taking advantage of the shortest tourist lines in French history. While the march is going on, you're just kicking back, snapping selfies with the Mona Lisa.


Unbelievable! An enormous global rally in supporting freedom of expression after an attack on a close ally, and the U.S. was a no-show???
