Add CNN's Anderson Cooper and late-night host David Letterman to the growing number of people criticizing President Barack Obama for not attending the unity rally in Paris on Sunday.
Cooper was a guest on Tuesday's "Late Show with David Letterman,"
and during discussion of the rally, which was attended by 44 other world leaders, Cooper said sarcastically, "And to see President Obama there was just extraordinary."

Even Vice President Joe Biden could have attended, he said.
"I mean, he spends weekends watching, like 'Gilmore Girls,'" Cooper said. "What else does the vice president do? No disrespect."
"What a great statement it would have been, not only for this country, but for the global concern of this kind of attack, if the president himself had actually attended," Letterman said.
CNN anchor Jake Tapper
said while covering the rally on Sunday he was "disappointed" as an American not to have had representation for his country. "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart also blasted Obama
for not attending.
