Odd Moment Of The Day – President Obama Toasts The Queen!

obama toast Odd Moment Of The Day   President Obama Toasts The Queen!

President Obama was delivering his toast to Queen Elizabeth last night.  Seems easy… but not quite!  As Obama began wrapping up his remarks, he put down his notecards and picked up his glass.  ”Ladies and gentlemen, please stand with me and raise your glasses as I propose a toast,” the president said, as the guests stood up. “To her majesty the Queen.”

At this point, the band queued up “God Save the Queen.” But Obama wasn’t quite finished yet.

So he kept talking – over the British national anthem – and the president competed with orchestra for a few more seconds.

Obama raised his glass, but nobody else in view of the camera followed. And the queen, who had been looking straight ahead, glanced over to offer a pained smile.

See the video!

    The Obamas are determined to redraft protocol, first Michelle bear hugs the Queen, then the president returns to them a gift in the image of England’s beloved statesman now not believing the elderly lady still calls the shots he embarrasses her, for no one will make a move without her and for the first time she is unsure what to do so she stands, she wont forgive him.

    Enough with this queen stuff. She’s fortunate he’s willing to give a toast and lift a glass since he has IRISH roots!
