Obama Snubs Women & Foreign Press

It was the largest gathering of world leaders summoned by a president since the founding of the United Nations. Beijing, Moscow, London, Brasilia, Islamabad, Ankara, Kuala Lumpur, Tokyo, and more were represented. Yet, at the concluding press conference, President Obama snubbed the foreign press and called on only American reporters.

Maybe the foreign press ask hard questions?

There were women in the room. The women were reporters, not wives, not sweeties. President Obama ignored the women. Acting like a true good old boy, the President called on the men and answered eight questions from eight American men. Maybe women ask hard questions?
