A top Russian female newsreader who appeared to defiantly show US President Barack Obama her middle finger during a live newscast has been fired.

It wasn’t her middle finger.
It was her fore finger. You can see her thumb next to the so called offending finger and three knuckles next to it.
Check out post # 15, thats a middle finger!
She should have pretended to scratch the side of her
face like Obama does then they wouldn’t have had a reason to fire her!
If you can enlarge the photo, as I did (6X), you will see it is a Classical 100% FUBO salute.

Give the woman her due, she has more GUTS than a lot of U.S. people.
I thought about it some more and it may be her middle finger.
“Obama” in Russian is “Obama” in English and “Kenyan” (as in Austrian language).
Also Obama is Obama in Kikuyu, Kamba, Ekegusii, Kimîîru, Oluluyia, Kigiryama, Kiembu, Nilotic Dholuo, Kalenjin, Maasai, and Turkana.
I know, for myself, that just the mention of that name causes immediate and profane thoughts and actions to occur, so why would it be different for her? Why would you need a translation. The word “Obama” is all it takes to evoke those feelings and actions from me.
This could actually be true. It does fit exactly. I prefer to think it was an Obama salute.
Damn I was liking her, hope she gets another gig.
She was saying, “Obama is Number One!”
I turned off the sound when I heard it was in Russian ... my bad ... thanx for illuminating my arrogant mind.
Nope. It was meant for AMERICANS to understand!
She's Russian, on a Russian TV channel, broadcast from Russia by Russian technicians. Why would she make an AMERICAN gesture to one of her technicians?
The Russian equivalent gesture to flipping the bird is a clinched fist with the thumb sticking out between the forefinger and the middle finger.
Clearly, it was flipped to 0b0z0 The Great! LOL!
