White House denies bow to Saudi prince

White House: No bow to Saudi
Article: Politico

“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.

The Washington Times called the alleged bow a “shocking display of fealty to a foreign potentate” and said it violated centuries of American tradition of not deferring to royalty. The Weekly Standard, meanwhile, noted that American protocol apparently rules out bowing, or at least it reportedly did on the occasion of a Clinton “near-bow” to the emperor of Japan.

Interestingly, a columnist in the Saudi-backed Arabic paper Asharq Alawsat also took the gesture as a bow and appreciated the move.

“Obama wished to demonstrate his respect and appreciation of the personality of King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz, who has made one of the most important calls in the modern era, namely the call for inter-faith and inter-cultural dialogue to defuse the hatred, conflict and wars,” wrote the columnist, Muhammah Diyab.

The video shows Obama dipping toward the king as G-20 leaders greet one another at the ExCel Centre in London.”

Okay. The White House staff is full of shit.

“It wasn’t a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he’s taller than King Abdullah”

Here is BHussein Obama as he“demonstrates his respect and appreciation of the personality of King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz”

Oh? Is this the excuse now? Because it’s no secret BHussein is a tall son of a bitch. Not quite as beastly as his mate, but he’s definitely tall.


Here we see that Barack Hussein Obama is several inches taller than President George W. Bush. Is he bowing down? Nope.


Here you’ll notice that he’s also quite a bit taller than Mayor Bloomberg. Yet he’s not being “bowed down” to.


How much taller than Chinese President Hu Jinta is BHussein? MUCH taller. Does he bow to show respect? Nope.


Is he bowing down to the President of Brazil? No. Yet, BHussein is taller than this guy, too. Bizarre.

Don’t forget. THIS is what a BOW looks like:

No wonder this White House ‘aide’ wanted to remain anonymous.
THEY’RE A LYING PIECE OF CRAP.
