During his recent visit to India, President Obama was caught on camera chewing gum as he met with the prime minister.
Pictures show Obama removing a piece of gum from his mouth as he sat with a group of world dignitaries watching the Republic Day parade. The pictures are humiliating to all Americans, as Obama just represented us in a truly rude light.
“’In an ungainly sight, cameras caught U.S. President Barack Obama chewing gum during the Republic Day parade on Monday,” The Times of India wrote. “In the picture captured by cameras and posted on Twitter by some users, Obama was spotted removing his chewing gum while PM Modi was seen trying to explain something to the U.S. President.”
According to the New York Daily News, the gum was Nicorette, a nicotine replacement gum the president uses to quit smoking. This makes little difference to the people of India, however, who clearly now think Americans are rude neanderthals who chew gum at important events.
Obama’s trip to India was meant to improve diplomatic relations between our nations. Clearly that, that was a huge fail….
