Awkward slow clap for Obama’s remarks in the Netherlands (video)

Written by Michele Hickford, Editor-in-Chief on March 27, 2014



In the absence of an adoring, perfectly-staged audience for President Obama’s droning pronouncements, the crowd response is…basically nothing.

It’s not just the poll results in the US that show respect and approval for Obama’s performance are plummeting – he just can’t seem to take the show on the road.

As CBS reports, at the conclusion of a joint news conference in the Netherlands with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, President Obama gestured and thanked the crowd as only a single person in the audience responded with an awkward slow clap.

Ouch. That’s really gotta hurt.



CBS says the near non-response from the audience comes amid reports from the UK Guardian newspaper that President Obama will arrive to the EU and NATO G7 conference in Brussels with a 900-strong entourage that includes 45 vehicles, three planes and a price tag of €10M ($10.4M) for the president’s 24-hour stay.

And about those poll figures? A CNN/ORC Poll seems to confirm what everyone in that room in the Netherlands was thinking. Asked if leaders of other countries respect Obama, only 39% said yes.

Finally, people are waking up to the fact that the Emperor has no clothes. But is it too late?

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

I heard this on Rush.

Sounded like one person clapping..............very, very slowly.

Made me smile!   :smokin:
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

It is ONE person clapping.

And after that one clap he says "thank you" twice ... like the clapping was happening.  Sparky looked a wee bit confused.   88devil

I guess the people are seeing of Europe Obama for the quack he really is. :Obounce:  That one person clapping was probably doing it out of courtesy or it was a Secret Service agent trying to make a silk purse out of sow's ear. :pigs fly:
