Figures. Cambodian First Lady Gives Obama the Servant Greeting
How does he do it?
Obama embarrasses America again.
Bun Rany, Cambodia’s first lady, gives President Obama a “sampeah” greeting at a tilt usually reserved for servants. (IBD)
The First Lady of Cambodia greeted Barack Obama like he was a towel boy.
And, of course, our clueless president thought it was ‘cool.’
Investor’s Business Daily reported:
So amid all the colorful and flirty photos from President Obama’s first tour of Southeast Asia, what did he actually accomplish? As usual, he served himself politically in what was largely a Potemkin mission abroad.
It was obvious enough from the rubelike gaffes that the president hasn’t been particularly interested or attentive to the affairs of Thailand, Burma or Cambodia as he made his first trip since his re-election. It was pretty much all style over substance…
…On his trip to Cambodia, a country he claimed didn’t deserve a visit due to its strongman government, first lady Bun Rany greeted Obama with a traditional “sampeah” pressed-hands greeting reserved for servants, a little dig that was probably lost on him but not to Asians.
She must be racist.
