Obama Ignores ‘Wrap-It-Up’ Beeps, Talks and Talks at Climate Summit
Obama was one of 147 world leaders given a three-minute slot at the COP21 conference to outline their vision for the future of the planet.
The president of the free world, however, had other ideas.
More than eight and a half minutes into Obama’s address — and with no sign he was stopping soon — three beeps sounded across the auditorium, clearly audible to everyone present and watching on TV.
The beeps continued every 30 seconds, but the president plowed on.
After 11 minutes, whoever was manning the “beep” button had clearly given up, and no more prompts were heard until Obama ended his epic discourse just shy of 14 minutes.
I thought it was interesting that such a sarcastically critic piece was published by lefty NBC.
