That Barack Obama did.
No he didn't...Obama’s hypocrisy on intelligence briefings
By Marc A. Thiessen

Well, that takes chutzpah.
President Obama is criticizing President-elect Donald Trump for failing to attend what The Post calls
“the most exclusive, and arguably most important, daily meeting in Washington” — the Presidential Daily Briefing (PDB) — warning
his successor that without the daily intelligence brief, “you are flying blind.”
This coming from the same person who skipped more than half of his daily intelligence briefings in his first term. As I reported
in this space in 2012, during his first 1,225 days in office, Obama attended his daily meeting to discuss the PDB just 536 times — an attendance record of 43.8 percent. In 2011 and the first half of 2012, his attendance dropped even lower, to just over 38 percent of the time.
Talk about flying blind.
