Obama Ego Bruised: Speech Inspires Just One Man To Clap

On Tuesday after speaking at a news conference in the Netherlands, President Barack Obama thanked the crowd -twice- and then waited awkwardly for applause that never came. One man took pity on the president and clapped, but that just made the situation worse.

Obama seems to have become accustomed to fanfare and applause, but his joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte didn’t even trigger customary polite clapping.

On the bright side, nobody booed or threw things.
