The Prune and the Danish

The Prune and the Danish
Wonder Woman knows.
Wonder Woman knows.

Oh, yes he di’id!

As just about the entire Western World already knows by now, Barack Obama’s public appearance at the tribute to South Africa’s Nelson Mandela included a well photographed selfie-session with Denmark’s leggy leader.

If facial expressions are any indication of what thoughts may be swirling in one’s mind, Mr. Obama’s happy-happy moments with Madame Prime Minister were much to the apparent chagrin of First Lady Michelle Obama, as reported by Fox News on Dec. 11, 2013.

Seated next to both the Prime Minister of Denmark Helle Thorning-Schmidt as well as Great Britain’s David Cameron a mere one seat over, the American Chief Executive physical contortions while seated in order to get himself in-frame with the European honchos can best be described as literally funambulist-worthy.

The eyes have it.
The eyes have it.

With no small amount of sarcasm, Scottie Nell Hughes, news director of the Tea Party News Network as she stated on the Fox News Channel’s panel discussion program Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld:

Maybe they were snap-chatting with the Dalai Lama.

As we all know, he couldn’t be there.

Regardless if one speaks English, Danish, Afrikaans or any of the nine official Bantu tongues spoken in South Africa, the body language of the First Lady leaves little to the imagination that she considers Mr. Obama’s attention lavished on rather attractive Mrs. Thorning-Schmidt may not be all that appreciated.

Michelle Induced Musical Chairs…?

What has been making the rounds on the internet is a Twitter compare and contrast set of snapshots from an individual identifying himself on the micro-blogging social networking site as Rune Kier Nielsen and also happens to go by the Twitter handle of @runekier.BbIRfpRCYAA17Qj

Using the military-style 24-hour time setting, Nielsen tags the top photo as taken before 1422 (2:22 pm) while the bottom image was after 1422.

A noticeably pouty Barack Obama is seen leaning away from his beloved, while the FLOTUS appears to somewhat have her back turned towards the Danish Prime Minister.

There has been no official explanation as to why the Obamas traded places during the Mandela Memorial event.
