Comedian Jon Stewart criticized President Obama on Monday for failing to attend the unity rally in Paris.

On Sunday, dozens of world leaders linked arms and marched in solidarity for freedom of the press and to honor those who were killed by terrorists last week. The rally was a response to the massacre at the office of Charlie Hebdo, which was targeted for publishing cartoons mocking the prophet Mohammed. It was the largest demonstration in the history of France.

Although numerous dignitaries were at the rally, there were no high profile attendees from the United States. That did not sit well with Stewart.

“And of course no grand show of liberty is complete without America, the country that freedom. That’s why President Obama was there, front and center,” he said, sarcastically.

Then, the liberal comedian aired a montage of news reports featuring people pointing out that the President of the United States was, in fact, absent from the event.

The camera shot back to Stewart, who displayed a noticeable look of confusion. He shrugged his shoulders and said he didn’t know where the President was at the time.

“How can Obama not be there?” he asked. “Look at how many world leaders he could have bowed down to and apologized. He missed an opportunity.”

Stewart also noted that countries with a less-than-spectacular record on human rights were represented.

“How can the U.S. not be there when representatives from of such beacons of freedom and lack of censorship as journalist-punishing Russia was there?” he said. “Journalist-jailing Turkey was there. Egypt — enough said.”

Stewart also took Attorney General Eric Holder to task for not showing up at the march, even though he was in Paris when the event occurred.

“What the f**k?” the comedian said. “Eric Holder, you were in France! In Paris! At the time of the march and were like, eh?”

He wasn’t done.

“Unbelievable! An enormous global rally in supporting freedom of expression after an attack on a close ally and the U.S. was a no-show? It’s going to take a lot to make up for this.”
