Obama can’t be bothered

I never thought I would see the day when France and Russia would take the lead in the fight against ISIS while our erstwhile leader, President Obama, is content with those darn little junior varsity pests that just won’t go away, darn it anyway.

It’s just not fair that a man of such great importance is being bogged down with petty little things like 130 dead in Paris, the Mali massacres and Europe basically paralyzed with fear. But hey, global warming is the greatest threat to mankind, and this darn little terrorist thing is just a bunch of fear-mongering.

Well, since this great man had less than a year left in office, I submit giving him a participation trophy like those given to students who really don’t believe in winning. Just being there is a great accomplishment.

The perfect trophy for his participation in the fight against ISIS.
