Barack Obama met for the first time with Pope Francis at the Vatican on Thursday. The two sat down for a one-on-one chat about their shared interest in combatting economic inequality. While Obama didn't bring Michelle Obama and his girls with him on this trip (he brought them when he met with Pope Benedict XVI back in 2009) he did bring Secretary of State John Kerry, who is a practicing Catholic. He also visited Amsterdam, where he was the subject of negative headlines after three Secret Service agents were sent home after they were found getting drunk in their hotel.
