It's nothing out of the ordinary, they plan it in advance, where a PR rep will go to the venue and say "hey, we want to bring the president here,
would you like to give him a hug?" then from there they lay down the ground rules etc, the VIP is briefed as is security.
It's all pre planned. Or as some as you like to say "staged".
Even off the cuff gestures like a hug would cause security to jump in or atleast approach for an "ok" from the VIP, generally if you don't see that
happen its planned.
Another thing, you know when you see a president sitting in a coffee shop that's real busy having a deep and meaningful with a person, and you can
see the people in the background enjoying coffee in the adjacent
Booths, well 9 times out of 10 they are security, plain clothes agents/officers.
Everything is a plan, it's all scripted, and I doubt mr TelePrompter president could handle too much improv
