Fingers: Did he bow? Or did he not bow? That is the question next on the Enough Already Daily Brief(ly)
Fingers: This is the Enough Already Daily Brief(ly) I’m Fingers Malloy, she’s Tracy L. Connors. Tracy, huge controversy on the internets, on the social medias. over whether or not Donald Trump bowed in Saudi Arabia to the king or was it the prince?
Tracy: I’m not even sure who gave him that medal, the Collar of Abdulaziz Al Saud. This reminds me of Fingers, the what colors is the dress thing. Do you remember that?
Fingers: Yeah. So The Independent has a piece and they put the video out there. So he was in Saudi Arabia, he was being presented a, what is that, a medallion?
Tracy: The Collar of Abdulaziz Al Saud!
Fingers: Ok sure.
Tracy: Why can’t you remember that? It’s real simple.
Fingers: You can get it at Jared. And so, we’ll call this guy the Fresh Prince of Riyadh, was going to put this medallion on him and Donald Trump is 6’2″ and the Fresh Prince looks like what about 5’4″? What happened next Tracy?
Tracy: President Trump put his head down so that rather minute in stature shall we say, Fresh Prince of Riyadh could place the Collar of Abdulaziz Al Saud around the President’s neck.
Fingers: And now this video clip has turned into the Vapruder film. Did he bow? Did he not bow? The Independent accuses him of doing a courtesy as many elderly men do when they receive a medallion from the Fresh Prince of Riyadh. There are two options here, either he bends over to receive the medallion, the necklace, combo or the Fresh Prince of Riyadh stands on phone book.
Tracy: Or two or three.
Fingers: Right, and I don’t think that’s going to happen.
Tracy: No. So this becomes the dress controversy all over again. Where half the people are seeing Trump not bowing but rather just being respectful to a shorter man and lowering his head, while the other side is, “He bowed! He bowed! He bowed!” So according to Slate he bowed, CNN thinks he bowed, AOL thinks he bowed, the Daily Beast thinks he bowed, Mediaite thinks he bowed.
Fingers: They’re nuts!
Fingers: He should have just taken the Fresh Prince’s medallion off of the pillow and put it on his own damn head. But then he would have been criticized for that.
Tracy: Yes. There’s no winning on this.
Fingers: We’ll add the video to this post and let you be the judge.
Tracy: I say it’s not a bow.
Fingers: And there you have it. This has been the Enough Already Daily Brief(ly) I’m Fingers Malloy, she’s Tracy L. Connors.
