Did Barack Obama flip off Chuck Todd at Friday’s press conference?

o-birdAfter dressing down NBC’s Chuck Todd during his pre-vacation press conference, Barack Obama appeared to extend his middle finger before wiping his eyebrow.

The gesture didn’t go unnoticed.  Twitchy said that “judging from body language, the president might not have been too happy about Todd’s questioning.”

It seems, Jim Hoft said at the Gateway Pundit, that Obama didn’t like what Todd had to say.


Video of the incident can be seen below.

A post at Fire Andrea Mitchell says Obama did the same thing during a question he didn’t like by Todd when he was in Israel back in March.

Video of that encounter can be seen here:
