FRIDAY FUNNIES 03-28-14: OBAMA GAINS AN AWKWARD ONE-PERSON CLAP AFTER HIS SPEECH IN THE NETHERLANDS ON TUESDAY…
“It’s a deep and all but certain truth about narcissistic personalities that to meet them is to love them, but to know them well is to find them unbearable. Confidence quickly curdles into arrogance; smarts turn to smugness, charm turns to smarm.“
Obama’s “star” has finally fallen as he failed to receive a thunderous applause for merely “speaking”. In the past, all Obama had to do was show up, and he would garner applause, adoration and awards for his teleprompter thoughts, not his actions (or inactions). Those days are finally over for him.
Obama was in the Netherlands on Tuesday with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte. At the conclusion of his joint news conference, he thanked the crowd twice and remained at the podium, expecting the usual reaction of thunderous applause and cheers from his adoring public. Instead, he was met with one slow, awkward clap, that was exceedingly brief, BTW. All the attendees noticed it, and as Obama left the room, everyone started snickering and laughing. That had to hurt. His only saving grace—his skin is so dark, you couldn’t see his face turning red. Hope your day goes better than Obama’s…
Enjoy your weekend,
