Egyptians haven’t been shy about expressing their displeasure with President Obama and his support of Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, carrying signs calling him a “jerk” and an “idiot” and Morsi his “bitch.” This weekend they took their frustration online, managing to trend the hashtag #ObamaMotherHasNoHair.
This is a quick reminder that Egyptians are the most awesome people on earth:#ObamaMotherHasNohair is trending.
