Obama was widely criticized after being caught on camera chewing gum during the D-Day ceremonies in France as Queen Elizabeth II was introduced. The Washington Times noted, “The words ‘shameful’ and ‘vulgar’ were thrown around as social media networks lit up with outrage at Mr. Obama’s display.” Considering as much, one would think he had learned his lesson. Not so, apparently.
Once again, Obama has caused international uproar and offended his host nation with his blatant gum-chewing. He showed up at the economic summit in Beijing looking like a cow chewing cud. The summit was billed as the biggest international event in the Chinese capital since the 2008 Summer Olympic Games.
