While <em>CBS This Morning</em> did mention that Obama was on the West Coast for fundraisers and that it has drawn criticism from Republicans, it lasted for only 27 seconds.</p><p>Among the news stories covered at the top of the 8:00 a.m. hour, co-host Gayle King read a news brief in which she stated that <strong>“President Obama faces criticism this morning for following through with a fund-raising trip to the West Coast.”</strong> King mentioned that Obama made stops in two states to raise money for Democrats and added that: <strong>“Many Republicans say that his priorities should be focused on the tensions with Russia and the turmoil in the Middle East.”</strong></p>
