Maybe people should read the FREAKING NOTAM for once in their lives. This happens more than you think and it’s due to lack of planning on the pilots end.

why didn’t they shoot down that intruder

Yep that’s exactly it. Pilot doesn’t call flight services prior to departure. Or monitor guard. Piss poor planning.

To top it all off there is a TFR in place. So he broke that as well, since no controller would allow him to get that close.

Is this sarcasm or are you being serious?

You serious? Or just joking lol?
They didn’t shoot them down because there were people on board and the aircraft did not make any attempt to be aggressive toward Air Force 1. ATC was also in contact with both aircraft the whole time. I could understand it more if the other aircraft was total radio silence and creeping toward AF1 but that wasn’t the case here.

Serious question but sarcasm at the same time?
