News Obamas skip traditional first couples photo with the Trumps
What kind of statement does it make to the American public(particularly those rioting) when the president is acting out in a childish way. The long held tradition of Presidential couples having a photograph taken to show a peaceful transition of power has been skipped this time around. Are they trying to enforce and/or escalate the protests? Are they suggesting it shouldn't be peaceful? Worse yet is it suggesting it won't happen? Bush wasn't thrilled about being succeeded by Obama but he still had the photo taken for histories sake. What say you ATS?

The photos are still frame captures from the short video produced in the Oval office.
Tradition is they pose on the steps together and then together with the first ladies on the same steps.
But hey we've all watched you spin everything to your false reality.

He didn't opt out because he wanted, but because it was a function after the meeting at the white house with Trump and the meeting took 1 hour too long.
It was in the news you people he meet with the Cavaliers right after the meeting in At the White house, the Cavaliers were there already too.
