Don't Tell Me He Didn't Bow!

Just watch the video and see for yourself...

Barack Obama's White House says the president did not bow to the Saudi King when they met during the recent G-20 meeting in London.

If you think he did, you're just believing your lying eyes.

So reports Politico's Ben Smith Wednesday.

"It wasn't a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he's taller than King Abdullah," an anonymous Obama aide told Politico.

The aide made the assertion despite a video showing Obama bending almost to a 45 degree angle as he met King Abdullah.

And Politico notes that the Arab press have reported on the "bow" — with favorable reviews.
The occasion may mark the first time a U.S. president has bowed to a foreign potentate.
By the way, if you want to see how your eyes lie, take a look at the video of Obama "not" bowing to the Saudi king...
