Tatiana Limanova Is Fired Over One Finger Salute
Russian anchor, Tatiana Limanova, was fired over her one finger salute to U.S. President Barack Obama.
It's certainly not as if our President would ever lower himself to make such a crass gesture. Obviously when Obama scratched his face with middle finger during the April 17, 2008 speech he made in Raleigh, NC. I mean EVERYONE scratches their face with their middle finger don't they? The crowd certainly caught on though because you can hear them cheering the gesture.
Then again it wasn't like he was the President or anything. Certainly this was a juvenile trick, not worthy of someone who at the time was the front runner for the nomination.
It is obvious that "if" this had been deliberate, it was a remarkably childish thing to do, completely unworthy of anyone running for the presidency.
Obviously it is inappropriate to flip off a world leader just as it would be inappropriate to play the song "Lyin' Ass Bitch" by Fishbone when a female candidate for President appears on television.
Certainly our media would treat people better than that. Unless of course that female candidate was Michlle Bachmann. Don't worry though because that's all been taken care of because the Jimmy Fallon show's band was "severely reprimanded."
Kudos to New York Democrat Nita Lowey, who said the song was "...insulting and inappropriate. I do not share Michele Bachmann's politics, but she deserves to be treated with respect."
