Barack Obama’s Twitter ‘photo of the day’ is just plain weird, demands captioning

Whoever is behind the @BarackObama “photo of the day” has a canny sense of timing. While Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been hard to pin down over the last few months, she does make a featured appearance in today’s selected snap, which usually focuses (literally) on the narcissist in chief.

So who do we have in this happy crew? The president, the man who complimented him as “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” and the woman whose supporters started the birther movement to discredit him. And just who are they laughing at? You!

Feel free to continue the caption contest below, but here’s a winner to start things off.

Update:

Blogger Jeryl Bier notes that the “photo of the day” is actually from last January. But forward!

White House photographer Pete Souza writes:

This is one of those rare instances where my presence indirectly became a part of this reaction from those pictured in the photograph. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had just accidentally dropped all of her briefing papers onto the Oval Office rug and she, the President and Vice President all reacted in a way that indicated that surely I wouldn’t get a photo of that to embarrass her

Editor’s note: We have corrected the headline to indicate that the photo came from the @BarackObama campaign feed and not the official @WhiteHouse account. We apologize for the error.

    Biden looks like a little school boy. Whispering in Hillary’s hear, “Forget all about 2016, that’s my puppy”.

  • journogal

    What is that behind Biden? It looks like a teleprompter, and hopefully I am wrong. Whatever it is, it’s strange looking or maybe it’s the positioning of the photo.

    Actually, they’re laughing at the photographer, Pete Souza, because he moved to snap a photograph just as the Secretary of State had accidentally dropped her folder of briefing notes on the floor of the oval office. But you knew that already, right?

    • TocksNedlog

      And your point is?

    All you posters better change the captioning. This pic was taken almost a year ago.. http://www.whitehouse.gov/photos-and-video/2012-photos

      We don’t need to change anything. Lying about everything to further your political goals is cool. Weren’t you paying attention during the campaign?

    • redheadgrl

      I guess it could be “Hillary hasn’t looked very good the past few weeks, so lets post a year-old photo as today’s daily pic!”. Is that better?

    • TocksNedlog

      Here’s your changed caption:
      “Blast from the past. Remember when all three of them had (slightly) less brain damage?”

    Who’s on first?

    • TocksNedlog

      Their attempt to recreate the classic Abbott & Costello routine failed for two reasons: 1) The only line Biden could remember was “I don’t know” . . . and possibly he wasn’t even really ‘remembering’ that; and, 2) The poorly timed response of “Third base!” being shouted by Bill Clinton, who was upstairs in the Lincoln bedroom and wasn’t even supposed to be in this skit.

  • orringtonmom (D)

    Obama: you guys wanna come see the pics of my vacay in hawaii?
