A photo of President Obama with his foot on the desk in the Oval Office is causing some controversy. The photo was posted on the front page of the Drudge Report on Sunday and it got a lot of people who were logged on to the Internet very upset, The Blaze reported.
Unsurprisingly, Twitter erupted with outrage:
Lou Dobbs (@loudobbsnews) shared his thoughts on the picture. “Check out Drudge Report pic of the President with his foot on the desk. The White House released it mistakenly thinking it's a cool image.”
Another user, Conservative Woman (@DivineMoments) expressed similar sentiments.
“Look at http://DrudgeReport.com headline photo.. Obama is on the phone with his foot dug into the Oval Office desk.. Disgraceful!”
She wasn’t the only one.
“#Obama has NO respect for the Presidency. Pic of him with his coat off & foot on his desk; IN THE OVAL OFFICE! What a jerk! #tcot #p2 #gop,” @ConserveCast tweeted.
Commenters spiritedly debated the video on Twitchy. One commenter defended Drudge’s right to post the photo and also referenced previous White House photos that have shown other presidents “disrespecting” the desk in the Oval Office.
“What does Drudge have to do with this? He is running the photo that many wires are running. Has he personally come out and said anything, or you just want to bring Drudge and Bush up. Why don't you email or Tweet Drudge to ask him how he feels about it, or perhaps not, since you obviously know what he is thinking.
It was wrong with Bush did it, and it's wrong with Obama does it. Two wrongs don't equal a right, and the old excuse, "but Bush did it, too!" doesn't work anymore and looks silly.”
