OBAMA: SALUTES UNITED NATION DIGNITARIES AS PRAISING U.N. WORKERS / PEACEKEEPERS

SALUTE PROTOCOL:  BROKEN AGAIN?

September 25, 2014


After catching some serious flak on issuing a "Latte Salute" to his Military personnel departing Marine One, today, we see another salute-gone-wrong during President Barack Obama's speech at the U.N. General Assembly (UNGA).

Yes, this is actually him, but no, he is not intentionally "flipping the bird" to Foreign Minister Lavroff from Russia (at least we don't think so).  Full speech offering thanks to U.N. workers, U.N. Secretary Ban Ki Moon as well as U.N. Peacekeepers and Medical personnel who have recently been deployed to West Africa and the Middle East.

We might just suggest, to be slightly more careful with the gestures.
