President Obama dodged some nightmarish PR this weekend when rain in the Washington area apparently washed out his usual Saturday golf – a round he would have been playing at about the same time news emerged that British hostage David Haines had been beheaded by ISIS.
Obama incurred heaps of outrage for his decision last month to head out to the golf course only minutes after making a statement about the killing of American hostage James Foley.
Obama Sunday played for the 39th time this year and the 196th occasion of his presidency.
After freshening up at the White House, it was then time for a Sunday evening visit to the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, where Obama, the first lady, and daughter Malia caught some paintings.
All of which gives me an excuse to play this video, which I like.
