On Sunday, President Obama skipped out on the historic, record-large demonstration in Paris to honor the victims of the Charlie Hebdo massacre, and to defend freedom against Islamic extremism.

The march which a staggering 4 million attended, including 50 world leaders, was even larger than the one the French held to celebrate the liberation of Paris from the Nazis during WWII.

Obama just wasnt that into it, apparently.

However, the historic meet saw even historic enemies like Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu…

…and King Abdullah of Jordan joining arms in unison.

But our Commander-in-Chief just couldnt be bothered to make it.

This generated worldwide shock which then moved thousands to come up with clever excuses for why Obama did not make it to Paris., using the Twitter hashtag: #ReasonsObamaMissedFranceRally.

Here are some of the best (h/t Twitchy, IJR):

1. Perhaps Obama was hitting the weight room

2. He just couldnt confirm the date with other leaders…

3. He couldnt find a way to blame George Bush…

4. He didnt hear about it on the news…

5. Obama doesnt dig French canines…

OUCH!

6. Michelle found out that the Danish PM would attend…

7. He wouldnt be the sole focus of all the photo-ops…

8. VP Joe Biden had issues and couldnt fill in…

9. He couldnt raise any funds from the event…

10. People might be reminded how his strategy to defeat Muslim terror hasnt exactly worked out…

11. There were far too many world leaders to bow to…

12. Hes busy scouring YouTube for a video to blame the Paris attacks on…

13. It was Obamas day off!

We have a WINNER! Take one look at Obamas oh-so busy schedule from Sunday…
