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?

Those were my exact thoughts reading this yesterday evening. This would only serve to escalate or oddly justify the rioting protest occurring at the moment for those whom feel they were wronged in the election process.
And I agree the sitting President is acting like a child by refusing to pose for history. But that's par for the course for such a....anyway.

There were photos of them together. Shaking hands, even. They both publicly said nice things about each other.

This is a non-issue. People should stop talking about it, as it will only cause problems. The more you talk about it, the more it will rile people up. Ignore it and move on.

Maybe Trump asked in private if Obama could start ripping up executive orders.

"Hey, since you're not doing much right now, could you save me some time and rip all those up? I mean, I'm just going to rip them up anyway so it would save me some time."

That's when Obama used the last power he had. No pictures with us!

Wrong.
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.

Photos, video - whatever. Obama didn't refuse to shake his hand did he? Michelle didn't refuse to serve Melania tea did she?

Am I wrong about their public statements regarding the meeting?

The spin is, that this will cause a civil war in the U.S. Get over yourselves.

We could ignore all of our problems but it has never made any of mine go away. If it is such a non issue then why not take the TRADITIONAL photo?

You mean Micheal.....erm Michelle?

The only first lady that we've ever had that was built like a linebacker?

Every time I see a picture of her, I can't help but look for the adams apple.

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.

Two minutes for a photograph would have made a big difference how as compared to not taking the two minutes?
