A common housefly tormented President Obama for the entire time he spoke in the State Dining Room of the White House in Washington on Thursday (Jan. 24).
Maybe the housefly was exacting revenge on Obama for flattening its cousin during an interview in 2009.
Then there was that time in 2010 when a swarm of flies attacked Obama's face causing him to halt a local news interview.
Apparently the industrial strength pesticides that the Obama administration have been using isn't doing the job.
From UK Telegraph:
The buzzing insect stole the show as the President announced two new members of his second administration, cutting wild loops around the leader of the free world before landing squarely on his forehead.
The official White House transcript simply reads: "This guy is bothering me here - (swatting at a fly.)"
Meanwhile, the pool report which describes the President's movements throughout the day noted that "the president spoke for about five minutes while being menaced by a house fly".
It wasn't the first time Mr Obama has shared camera time with a fly. In June 2009, the newly-elected president dealt some tough justice to one which interrupted an interview.
