Who are feds? There are no feds, just Obama protecting Saudi kings against the expressed wishes of Amer public and US Congress.
Argentina was sued in US court for its debt, just a few years ago.

P.S. This just in: Obama allegedly ate pork therefore he is not a muslim => he could have no religious motive in defending Saudis or droning "ISIS is not islamic, yaa nou". Case closed.

Got a deal for you: you post a picture of Ike bowing to the Saudi king and I'll post a Snapchat on Election Day of me voting for Hillary.

 

Deal?

I understand the symbolism behind why people get upset over bowing, but if I was travelling for work to a place like Japan where bowing is customary, I think I would.  I think it is important to show an understanding of the other person's culture.

Bowing in Japan isn't like a handshake. There's a lot of posturing involved with regard to how you do it, how low you bow and all that.

Notice how the emperor just nodded his head while Obama bowed way down? That's a sign of submission in Japan just like it is everywhere else.

Apparently Hillary's website is now going for buzzfeed style articles: https://www.hillaryclinton.com/feed/donald-trump-pepe-the-frog-and-white-supremacists-an-explainer/

I agree with you.  My response was a more general comment not on any specific event and towards the back and forth between Nick and shah.  There are various reasons for vowing in different cultures, and the way the bow is done, to your point, is also important.

 

As an example, the Obama and Japanese Emperor bow: I think it was less Obama knowingly submitting to the Emperor, but rather just incompetence - either the protocol officer didn't teach him properly, or he didn't bother to learn to do it right.

Supposedly from Colin Powell's email leak.

I'm glad to see Slick Willy still has it.

The media are crooks, but surely even they aren't crooked enough to suppress something like that while headlining comments about Trump.

...or maybe they would.

Personally I think that the President should get a three finger pimp ring with his initials across it.
Tell all heads of State to "kiss the ring, bitch."

And, The New Hampshire Union Leader endorses... well, read it for yourself.

No bow: I am your overlord
5 degrees: I have slight respect
45-90 degrees: Yes master. So it shall be
