I guess I've never noticed him doing this. Probably because I have refused in the past to even watch him when he has been on TV. Well, now since the debate I've been watching closely and all I see is him running up on stage like a rock star and biting his bottom lip. It absolutely has gotten to an annoying point for me, so I decided to ask you all if anyone else has noticed this.
Biting the lip, centrally or at the side, is often a sign of anxiety. Usually, this is the bottom lip (especially if the person has overhanging top teeth). This may be a habitual action and people who do this, will often repeat the move in predictable situations. It can also be an indicator for stress during lying.
This is a fairly child-like action, especially if accompanied by wide eyes and eyebrows raised in the middle and lowered at the sides, and thus may betray concern about being told off or otherwise being censured in the manner of a child.
As well as a comforting action, biting the lip can be a suppressing action as a person is stopping themself from saying something.
So what say you my fellow Freepers? Has anyone noticed and if not - sorry if I'm now pointing this out to you.
He learned it from Bubba Clinton.
He is trying to channel former perv-in-chief BJ Clintoon.
Bill Clinton was the king of lip biting.
Ohhhh my goodness, you are sooo right!
Thank you.. I was asking my husband if he had ever noticed it before. I was thinking this must be something new and I know someone else does that and it annoyed me too! I just couldn’t pinpoint who that might be, but it had to be someone that was near the President. Celebs?
You are so right! He is trying to take on the persona of Billy boy because he thinks that is his ticket!
Biting the lip and lying
Starting with lying the action of biting a lip can be a sign or signal that the person with this action is being inaccurate and telling a lie. The biting of the lip could also be a way to hold the information internally by locking the lips down enough so that talking cannot be done. Sometimes the bite can happen before the lie and sometimes it can happen after the lie. It may even mean that the person is fabricating or embellishing a story or statement. A person biting their lip does not always mean that they are showing definite signs or signals of lies.
Oh and to all - ewww.... ick...
I really hate it when guys do this! Just for the record as if you hadn’t noticed by now! ;)
They probably locked 0bama in a room and said “Here, watch these tapes of Clinton” and after a little self-gratification... VOILA!!
Elvis did it before Bubba and Obama. What’s it say about a half-black guy that he has to imitate a white guy imitating a white guy imitating a black guy?
What drives ME crazy is how often Barry picks at his nose in public; checking for that residual powdered doughnut-dust, I guess. Wouldn’t want the public to see that powdery sh*t on his nasal orifice. It might give people an idea....
You people are great! Thank you so much for the laughs. It makes everything so much better. hahaha
He is a pillow biter as well.
Yeah....and what’s with that insane annoying tooth/nose whistle he does....?
Ear, nose, and throat effects: Because the majority of users sniff or snort cocaine through their nose, there are a variety of nasal and sinus diseases. Many users complain of nasal irritation, nasal crusting, recurrent nosebleeds, nasal stuffiness, facial pain caused by sinusitis, and hoarseness.
The mucous membrane of both sides of the septum (the cartilage that separates the nostrils) can be damaged by decreased blood supply, along with drying, crusting, and nose picking. This results in a perforation or hole in the septum with more crusting, foul secretions, nosebleeds, and whistling with nasal breathing, the so-called coke nose. Because nasal obstruction is a common complaint, many users self-treat with over-the-counter nasal decongestants, such as Afrin, which adds to the problem because it also closes or narrows the blood vessels. Many users have also realized that this easily recognized and accepted form of self-medication with a nasal spray is a way to administer cocaine in public. After all, who is going to check that it is not a common nasal spray in the dispenser?
Is this why he has purple lips? Drugs? Lack of oxygen?
It confirms what I have suspected.
He also uses the same hand gestures as Mr. Clinton
