Obama’s Not Interested In Photo Ops, Y’all

Well, we all know by now that President Obama is “not interested in photo ops.” He said this a few days ago, when questioned about why he wasn’t visiting the southern border, where unaccompanied minor children are crossing over in droves. But, then, of course, after saying this (and not visiting the border) he finished his Texas trip with none other than…a photo op!

Since Obama made this statement, scores of actual “photo ops” he had taken in the past began showing up online and on Twitter, showing the absurdity of his “not interested in photo ops” claim.

The deluge of comments over his absurd statement brought back memories of such classic moments as Obama’s selfie with Prime Minsters Helle Thorning-Schmidt and David Cameron at Nelson Mandela’s funeral. (A funeral, yo! Seriously? Where’s the class?) And, the one of him shaking the hand of former Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez. And, of course, the classic one where he honored Rosa Parks on Twitter by posting a picture of himself on the bus Rosa sat on.

This excellent video compilation above by Digitas Daily really hits the nail on the head about just how “uninterested” President Obama really is about photo ops.
