After waiting with baited breath for the White House to explain why Barack Obowma broke time-honored military protocol by bowing deeply at the waist for the Saudi king, the White House finally mustered an explanation today.
The White House is denying that the president bowed to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia at a G-20 meeting in London, a scene that drew criticism on the right and praise from some Arab outlets.
“It wasn’t a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he’s taller than King Abdullah,” said an Obama aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
OMG I cant stop laughing! Did he say Obowma was TALLER than the king?? Isn’t he taller than the queen, who stands 5′-4″?? Does the Obowma administration really think the American people will sit idly by and be blatantly lied to?
Watch the video of the bow again, and you decide if Obowma bowed to the Muslim king or not.
