POTUS press conference: Did Obama flip Chuck Todd the bird? [pic, video]

One of the first reporters asking questions at President Obama’s press conference was NBC News’ Chuck Todd, and judging from body language, the president might not have been too happy about Todd’s questioning.

You be the judge:

Sending Todd a message, or just a habit?

  • Jennifer

    Is Chuck Todd threatening to become a journalist?

    • Stephen K

      F Chuck will come crawling back to Obama on his belly with his tail between his legs soon enough, like any good little lapdog who just peed on the rug.

      • Doug Westberry

        Wonderful comment and oh so true. He is no doubt in bed with him along with all the other cronies.

      There is nothing unplanned in any dealings Obama has with the media, everything is contrived and done on purpose.

  • Lexikin

    Anyone notice how devilish Obama becomes when people ask him real questions? If we had REAL journalists in the MSM, he would have been out of office a long time ago. Obama doesn’t like to be questioned on his authority, and he would explode if journalists did their jobs. Obama’s true colors are exposed when he’s mad. Public rant = goodbye!

    • conservativemomma

      devilish is the perfect description. It is like a dark cloud comes over his face and his whole countenance turns furious

      • redbirddeb

        Interesting to watch the serpent SQUIRM.

    • The Gimlet Eye™

      Much like a certain Austrian corporal of the last century.

    • Will P.

      If we had real journalists in the MSM he never would have been in office to begin with.

  • CHHR

    Oh yea, Chucky Todd stepped in it with Obama… “no, no, Mr President, it was part of a question you didn’t answer” and a very definite eff you punk right back at him… WOW!
    Tickets! Get your tickets! It seems it’s epic movie time!

  • forgetyoutooo

    Did Obama pretend to sneeze and call Todd a nasty name, too?

  • GodSaveAmerica

    Yeap, it’s the bird!

  • Jennifer

    Check out Ed Henry’s face in the top pic!

    That middle finger. That’s what he’s been doing to America for 5 bad years.

  • BoscoBolt

    Whatever – obama signs Chuck Todd’s paychecks – obama can treat his propagandists any way he wants.

  • TocksNedlog

    One of those rare moments when President Obama manages to accurately express the view of the nation.

  • sja

    He has been doing that for years. Whenever he gets a line of questioning he doesn’t like he scratches his face with a not so subtle middle finger. It’s the kind of thing I would have done when I was in Jr. High.

    It’s comforting to know the leader of our country has the maturity level of a 13 year old.

    Yep, the most UN-presidential prezuhdunce evuh!

  • $27789750

    IF that’s what he did, he’s a disgrace to his office.

    • cscape

      there are lots of examples which go back to 2009

    • Holdmynose

      People in the public eye are well aware of not making obscene gestures. He then uses the other finger to make you not believe your lying eyes.

  • OLLPOH ~ America

    He shot the Bird at all of us on all subjects! The Marxist/Fascist is as cool and collective and it is his way…
    Please know this and remember, a Marxists always sees that No One before them did it right before, so therefore I am What You Have Been Waiting For and If You are Not With Them The Cool Kind Swagger will dress you down…The Saul Alinski Scholar Perfected Himself Again today!
    Saul Alinski was a Communist. And Liberation Theology, Black Liberation Theology and Critical Race Theory and obfuscation on Benghazi all on display….different day. He is Covered, by his ilk….and it is under Seal.

  • ceemack

    A guy who looked very much like Chuck Todd stood up in a press conference and tried to make Obama answer an earlier question that he dodged.

    My question: who was this obvious impostor, and what has he done with the real Chuck Todd???

  • Republicanvet

    Bad lapdog! No donut for you.

  • stuckinIL4now

    It appears that a snapshot of that moment is currently the headline photo on Drudge.

    • cscape

      right….. and you can see him pulling down on his lower eyelid, which is a derogatory japanese gesture that he undoubtedly became familiar with while “growing up” in Hawaii

  • el_polacko

    obama’s used this same lame little ‘trick’ many times. my guess is that it makes him feel like he’s gotten one over on whomever he’s ‘secretly’ flipping off. so childish.

  • cscape

    this is a triple obscene gesture used by our “president”…. the first is the basic “bird” (middle finger), the second is the addition of the index finger, making the Churchill “V” for victory, which is how the Brits flip the bird… and finally, pulling down on the lower eyelid (which you can see in the close-up on Drudge) is a derogatory japanese gesture, which he undoubtedly became familiar with while in Hawaii as a youth

  • Philosoraptor

    No, I don’t think so. Let’s be better than the left and only go with really solid material. We don’t need to fabricate issues: they give us so many real ones to point out every single day.

  • rambler

    Yup…. he did and he’s done it before to others. He could have used another finger to touch his eye and he chose that one.

  • $29520529

    Just one question? WTF?

  • Steve_J

    That pos has done that to H Clinton and John McCain during debates. But what can you expect from someone with the maturity level of a 7th grader?

  • fireandreamitchell

    I would have flipped off Chuckles Todd too, but for different reasons.

    • beebop1952

      I would rather Chuck was doing the flipping.

  • Constitution Warrior

    He does it all the time. Has no one noticed before?

    • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

      Nobody can stand to watch Obama for that long

    • likeablaze

      I know right? He does it A LOT. He even did it to Chuck in the presser for the Israel trip.

  • Acethepug

    What a thin-skinned, narcissistic child. How anyone can not only admit to voting for him, but think he is qualified to run anything more complex than a lemonade stand is beyond me.

  • Junie3

    That’s how I hope he’s saluted on his last day in office.

  • worldscam

    I hate Obama more than anything in the world- but he didn’t flip the bird there.

  • AlCashier

    obama was sending Todd a clear message. ‘shut up and sit down, f-ck you, white boy.’.. obama no longer cares what those democrat white sycophants think of him.

  • AmericanLass

    He has done the same thing before, when asked something he feels no one has a right to ask. So yes, he did flip him off.

  • Maxx

    Let’s examine this more closely. Did he give Chuck the bird? Well, a bird has wings and red bull (sh*t) supposedly gives you wings so we must conclude that yes…

    The President flipped off his own wingman.

    Ruffling feathers everywhere. 😉

  • The Jackal

    Obama’s an Asshole.
    Plain and Simple.

  • E to the F™

    The look on that Pussy President’s face is priceless. Poor Barry, has to answer questions, not listen to how great he is. What a fucking woosie.

  • Mechan8

    He’s a pig….period…absolutely no class!

  • syvyn11

    How cute, how clever. He gave the bird and nobody noticed it, except for everyone.

    Reminds me of this black kid at a amusement park I used to work in. He jumped over the fence into a restricted roller coaster zone. I tried to tell him that if security caught him, he’d be thrown out. He reacted by doing the same move Obama did with Todd and Hillary (remember the democratic primary debates?). But I got the last laugh. I got him and his pals thrown out for witnessing him jumping into the zone.

  • Victoria Richardson

    Mostly everyone uses the index finger to scratch their itching eyes. You can tell the look on his face of what he was doing, he has his head down with a condescending smirk on his face.

  • TXKracker

    He flips the digit to the American people on a daily basis… nothing new from this sorry POS empty suit, community organizer and professional agitator.

  • HolyCowRUKiddingme

    I heard that Chucky later apologized and got on his knees!

  • Axelgreaser

    OF COURSE HE FLIPPED CHUCK TODD THE BIRD. But he’s been giving America the finger for 5+ years, so why is this news? That’s the kind of trash we have in the White House. A recalcitrant child! Good Lord, how Obama must get under foot of whomever the real President of the United States actually is.

  • Jason

    Frankly, I prefer the video of Ann Romney flipping off Obama.

  • Roto

    Don’t dare bring this up to Chuckie… he’d be crushed!!!

  • Guest

    Despots like Obama ultimately leave in disgrace…
    there have been NO exceptions, throughout history.

  • USPatriot

    “Barry” I’ve been flipping you the bird since 2008.

  • Vickie DHaene

    He did the same to Ed Henry.

  • Trudy Hill

    I think he did that to Hilary during a debate before he was the chosen one.

  • redbirddeb

    Popcorn-munching alert: watch the serpent SQUIRM! 😉

  • Truth

    I don’t know if this was an intentional flip of the bird but I can tell you that the news conference was just smoke and mirrors, just another act of deception on the people.

  • Connie Alsip

    Obama showing his regard for a reporter. In his usual and inimical manner, he flips off said journalist whilst simultaneously scratching his eyebrow. Pffft!

    • YouHateMe

      How many times has Oballah done this? More than a few times. There is really something more than narcissism and immaturity about this man. There is something within him I posit that gives him a feeling of imperiousness and entitlement that does not allow him to be regarded as a fallible being; and this I feel reduces any criticism of him by mere mortals to the scratching of fleas.

  • Autonoe

    My choices were watch the highlights on the news or watch Obama for an extended period of time….I took the highlights route. .

  • Terry

    I woulda flipped him off – right back at ya asshat. that man has NO class.

  • Junie3

    The man child move. He’s such a thug.
