The first couple are falling all over themselves lately. First Michelle, dressed in what the Daily Mail described as “silver stilettos,” took a stumble when she reached for the hand of Emperor Akihito during her Japan trip earlier this month. She ought perhaps to have stayed down, for when she righted herself she towered over the unfortunate man and his Empress. From the photos, she needed to squat in order to shake the Emperor’s hand, and to incline her head in order to converse.
Yesterday, Barack couldn’t make it down the first step of Air Force Once without stumbling. He’d just returned from a golfing trip at a private resort in Florida, so he should have been well rested. Yet, from the photos, in trying to pick up his falling pants, he failed to hold on to the railing and almost fell down the stairs.
According to the Washington Post, one of his golf buddies was “energy titan Milton Carroll, who sits on the Halliburton board of directors.” That would be the evil Halliburton that the Left associates with the evil Dick Cheney.
Maybe something in the water these folks are drinking?
