RIO DE JANEIRO – President Barack Obama played grand tourist to Rio de Janeiro's vivid extremes on Sunday, traveling from brilliant beaches to a notorious slum even as he monitored U.S. military strikes in faraway Libya.
With his whole family in tow on the second day of a Latin American tour meant to knit economic and cultural ties, the president visited the City of God shantytown that gained fame after a movie by the same name won Oscar nominations.
"With his whole family in tow"
Sounds to me like another vacation instead of an effort to improve relations.......
Even the fucking media is getting that same idea - read the 2 paragraphs again - "played grand tourist" and "whole family in tow".
