A news photographer captured the president sitting with the prime ministers of Great Britain and Denmark. He has a cellphone in his hand. The three of them are grinning.

Is she trying to make us think she is jealous or is it about the ‘white lady’?*
*See picture of First Lady Carla Bruni with our First ‘Lady’.
I would love to know what was said to the Prime Minister of Denmark just before photos #2 was taken
He is NOT dumb......he’s the most CLEVER SMILING SNAKE that has EVER inhabited the White House, including LBJ!! He DESPISES AMERICA.
“Where de white wimmins at?”
