What an idiot.

This isn't the first time he's made a fool out of himself.

Remember when he signalled the band to play "Hail to the Queen" in the middle of his toast and then kept on speaking through the song?

Awkward.

//President Barack Obama was met with what appeared to be the U.N.'s version of the Oscars' "wrap-it-up" music Monday after he significantly overran his allotted time to speak at a global climate change 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.

Organizers did not respond to NBC News' requests for comment on the beeps, but the punctuating sounds appeared to be the conference's not-so-subtle attempt to get Obama to wrap it up.//

Four Sets of three tones of a resounding C above middle C. They should have begun the French National Anthem. Had there been a band present, they would have done so.

The rules don't apply to our Fearless Leader.

The US Congress and Senate haven’t successfully shut him up after eight years--who would expect a few music bars or beeps from the UN to do the job? There is no cure for Obama’s strain of uncouth.
