Reality begs to differ. Via Free Beacon:
Valerie Jarrett thinks the substance of the administration’s response to the Paris terror attacks was just super.
President Obama’s close confidant and senior adviser appeared on CNN Thursday morning and reiterated the talking points on the lack of United State appearance at the unity march in Paris.
“I think we certainly got the substance right but it would have been great to participate in the parade and we’re delighted Secretary Kerry is there now,” said Jarrett.
Jarrett didn’t explain what “substance” she was talking about. The President and his administration have received bipartisan criticism for the White House refusal to label the terrorist attacks as Islamic extremism. The administration’s no-show at the Paris rally against terrorism has also been widely panned by the media.
Various members of the Obama Administration have repeatedly said that there were no plans to send either President Obama or Vice President Biden to Paris. Attorney General Eric Holder was in Paris and appeared on multiple morning shows but was not at the march. Jarrett’s response? “He had very important meetings to be at.”
