I am not sure if this is because Obama is scared or because he is a narcissist and doesn’t care about other people’s time. Both are classic Obama, so maybe it’s a little bit of both.
The main group of leaders led by Putin arrived together at the historic Peterhof palace outside Saint Petersburg, with British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Francois Hollande seen talking animatedly at the back of the pack.
But Obama was nowhere to be seen and only arrived at the palace a good half an hour after the rest.
Striding purposefully through the palace park, he smiled and waved for the cameras, images broadcast by the organizers showed.
Also arriving late, showing up to the dinner just before Obama, was Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff.
