Obama given servant's greeting by Cambodian first lady

Obama given servant's greeting by Cambodian first lady
Obama made history when he became the first American president to visit Cambodia, but the president was the victim of a diplomatic snub at the hands of Cambodian first lady Bun Rany, the UK Daily Mail reported Thursday.

According to the Daily Mail, Obama "went straight from the airport to a meeting with Prime Minister Hun Sen that White House officials described as tense, with Obama emphasizing his concerns over the Cambodian leader's poor democratic leadership model and the country's worsening human rights abuses."

After the meeting, the two men changed shirts in preparation for dinner.

Before the dinner, Sen introduced Obama to his wife, Bun Rany, who greeted Obama with a traditional "sampeah" pressed-hands greeting that is normally reserved for servants.

"Was the first lady getting her own back over the president's harsh words earlier to her husband or did she simply forget that she was shaking hands with the leader of the free world?" the Daily Mail asked.

According to the Daily Mail, the slight was not noticed by Obama or his advisers, but it "would have been picked up by a great many people throughout Southeast Asia region."

The Gateway Pundit's Jim Hoft offered a simple explanation that even American liberals can accept.

"She must be racist," he wrote.

Notice that the guy in the middle is laughing.

Yes, laughing while his eyes are looking directly at her hands.

Her hands are lower than his, which is typical if she is older.

She's probably pissed because the bamster didn't apologize to them like he did the rest of the world.

What's amazing is that the dumb masses in America truly believe Obama is revered by the world's leaders.
