Breaking News from The Ministry of Truth: that was not a bow Obama gave to the King of Saudi Arabia, it was a doubleplusgood prostratedhandshake

Hat tip: hill buzz

In New York, we actually know someone who discovered cockroaches in her kitchen late one stomach-turning night, only to be told by her landlord the next morning that those were not, in fact, cockroaches, but were actually hug-a-bugs.

“Oh, don’t worry about those, they’re just hug-a-bugs. They won’t harm you. In fact, they’re more afraid of you than you’ll ever be of them. They hardly ever eat anything at all, and only come out at night in the dark, so if you leave all the lights on all the time, they won’t bother you.”

Obama clearly bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia and prostrated himself to kiss the king’s ring, in much the same fashion Catholics bow to the Pope and subjects of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth bow respectfully to her. The current President of the United States, however, shows this sort of love and adoration to the King of Saudi Arabia.

Think of that what you want, but it was indeed a bow.

No matter if the White House wants to call it a hug-a-bug-hug or a doubleplusgood prostratedhandshake or whatever other sort of malarkey they choose to serve up today, to endless cheers from the media.

We all know what it is.

We all know what cockroaches are.

The rest is just semantics.

    Bugs often get stepped on, epecially by stomping mad Republicans in Congress and the Senate!

    Obama, the President of the United States and leader of the free world, bows to a Saudi King who represents a despotic regime noted for its’ human rights violations, a birthplace of terrorists, a symbol of everything that is an antithesis to our system of government, and it’s no big deal?

    I consider myself fortunate to have been born in a republic. I appreciate that as a citizen of a republic, I need not bow to any man or woman. We are all created equal, and blood lines do not make one person superior. This gesture by Obama should rankle every citizen for when Obama bowed as President of the United States, we all bowed.

    He did bow, see the video from the latest angle:
