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

If I got fired every time I flipped Omoslem the finger, I’d get fired every 3 hours.
Maybe Putin will hire her to be his spokesman.
“Sources close to the channel had previously tried to defuse the row by claiming that the newsreader had believed she was off camera at the time and merely providing a voice-over for a report. She had raised her middle finger as a jokey retort to studio technicians who had been trying to put her off her stride, they said.”
See. It was just a coincidence that she flipped the bird at the precise moment she mentioned Obama.
And it is also a coincidence when Obama rubs his nose with his middle finger just as he mentions his opposition. Funny how often coincidences happen.
I saw that clip a couple of days ago and wondered ... is there a real-time translation to go along with the video ?
Damn shame...what about the “journalists” who worship Hussein? Can they get fired, too?
Close to what I was thinking. Teach her English, most likely already knows it, and have her report from Moscow. Better yet, she needs to be retained by The Blaze.
Post of the day!
Why? She was only expressing what millions of Americans fel. I’d invite her to make a series of speeches for the TEA Party.
She should have been fired.Its wrong for a Russian commie to give the middle finger to one of their own.Zero started working with the ruskies years ago.
“...”The Emperor is naked,” he said.
“Fool!” his father reprimanded, running after him. “Don’t talk nonsense!” He grabbed his child and took him away. “
She might not have been able to help it. Many people’s fingers have been stuck in that mode since Obozo sullied the White House.
Perhaps this good woman should get disability pay.
Please forward to NBC reference Michele Bachmann......
A russian obama salute
If you worked for me and didn't, I would fire you.
Off to enjoy the wife and kids, now that everyone is awake.
A prime opportunity for Fox to hire her to lead a new Moscow News Bureau!
Her only mistake was not touching her lip with her finger like Bammy does when he flips everyone off!
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!
