French upset over Obama's rude gum chomping during D-Day memorial

http://www.dailydot.com/politics/obama-chewing-gum-d-day-ceremony/

On Friday, various heads of state gathered in Normandy to join the veterans in commemorating the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

One of whom was President Obama, who was caught on camera chewing gum while clapping during the welcome for Her Majesty the Queen.

Why am I not surprised by the complete lack of class with this guy. It think one of the French tweets sums it up pretty nicely:

Le chewing-gum Obama merde

At least he didn't snap a selfie or hit on another head of state during the ceremony. I suppose he's improving.

Interesting. If true, that's a bit disrespectful.

One commenter said it was probably nicotine gum (i.e. Obama's still smoking). I suppose I'd rather have him be a little rude by chewing gum than have him be a lot rude because he's going through withdrawals.

Some Frenchie tweets and the Obama Derangement Syndrome crowd concludes that the French nation agrees. Funny, you'll never hear anything from the ODS clowns about the world wide popularity of Obama as reflected on Twitter. The message of those frenzied bigots is way, way past its sell-by date. Get a life!

10. the fact that the French for "chewing gum"

 

is "chewing-gum" kind of shows how foreign it is to the culture.

Nicotine gum is a reasonable explanation; so is having clogged ears from flying.

Time and place, though, and really, to most people outside the US (and some inside, I would expect), gum-chewing at a significant and solemn public occasion is just rude. And they're looking at it in their own cultural frame, unsurprisingly, since they were the hosts of the occasion in question.

14. Yesssss.....from those intrepid "journalists" at the award winning (snort) 'Daily Dot!!!'

Oooooh nooooooes!

But NOTHING beats a Snarling Dick in a parka!!!!

At yesterday's gathering of world leaders in southern Poland to mark the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, the United States was represented by Vice President Cheney. The ceremony at the Nazi death camp was outdoors, so those in attendance, such as French President Jacques Chirac and Russian President Vladimir Putin, were wearing dark, formal overcoats and dress shoes or boots. Because it was cold and snowing, they were also wearing gentlemen's hats. In short, they were dressed for the inclement weather as well as the sobriety and dignity of the event.

The vice president, however, was dressed in the kind of attire one typically wears to operate a snow blower....



It was probably Nicorette he was chewing!

I have to laugh at how the GOP, who made fun of the French with the Freedom Fries bullshit and the "Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys" snark, all of a sudden give a shit what they think!

Ahhh, L'hypocrisie, c'est le GOP!
