President Obama got in a lot of trouble this week when the press took a still picture from a video and made it seem like he was looking at a 16 or 17 year old girl’s ass in a tight dress. A few comments on this.
- That’s NOT what he was looking at. Watch the whole video.
US Magazine says this:
Pictures can be deceiving.
Yesterday, a photo surfaced of President Barack Obama seemingly checking out the backside of a 17-year-old junior delegate at the G-8 summit in Italy.
But new video tells a different story.
It appears Obama wasn’t sneaking a peak; instead, he was just helping another young delegate down the stairs.
But French president Nicholas Sarkozy’s intentions aren’t as clear.
The Head of State — who’s married to former model Carla Bruni — keeps his face drawn toward the 17-year-old.
- I am a 17 year old girl and I know that if I wear sexy clothes and walk a certain way, MOST men will look at me. It’s the reason I wear short skirts some times and don’t wear them other days. So what if he DID look? Who cares? It’s not like she had an ID out that showed her age.
- Girls and women have the power to dress the way we want to dress in the United States. And be who we want to be. We don’t all need image consultants, and we don’t all mind if men look at us when we walk past.
