White House Claims Obama Didn't Bow to King

Wednesday, 08 Apr 2009 11:34 PM

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 90-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.
