Dr. Lillian Glass Never Said Obama Was a Psychopath- Meme Got It Wrong

“Crocodile Jeers”

“Body language expert Lillian Glass said a popular meme misconstrued one of her quotes and made assertions that aren’t credible or ethical.

CLAIM: According to a body language expert, a photograph of President Obama crying reveals he is a psychopath.

FALSE

EXAMPLE: [Collected via Facebook, January 2015]

The origin of the claim contained in this graphic seems to come from a 2013 book by Lillian Glass titled, “The Body Language of Liars.” Yet, as we all know, this isn’t an exact science in any way. Furthermore, the author, though seemingly educated in this field, seems to have a found a niche in which to capitalize on people’s fears. A title of another of her books is, “Guide to Identifying Terrorists Through Body Language.” Another is “The Body Language Advantage: Maximize Your Personal and Professional Relationships with this Ultimate Photo Guide to Deciphering What Others Are Secretly Saying,in Any Situation.”
Nevertheless, opponents of the President are using something she wrote to some degree of success.
Thoughts?

ORIGIN:On 5 January 2016, President Obama proposed several measures to curb gun violence while delivering remarks on the topic in the East Room of the White House. As he discussed gun deaths involving children, the President began crying (as seen at the 0:44 mark in the video embedded below):

The following day, a meme about President Obama’s show of emotion began circulating online, holding that according to body language expert Lillian Glass, the Commander-in-Chief’s tears bore hallmarks of psychopathy (and implied that the body language he demonstrated was evidence he is himself a psychopath):

Some versions of the meme attributed its claims to Dr. Lillian Glass:

In her 2013 book “The Body Language of Liars,” behavioral analyst Lillian Glass wrote that psychopaths are really bad at crying:

“When psychopaths cry, they will often wipe underneath each eye, one at a time. When people cry genuine tears they cry with both eyes, and so they will tend to wipe both eyes at once.”

A brief online search indicated that the quote cited above was lifted directly from a 6 November 2013 Business Insider article titled “7 Signs You’re Working with a Psychopath.” The article predictably described an entirely different context:

They are really bad at crying.

“When [Susan Smith] gave a press conference and cried about her missing children, her fake tears were actually what raised suspicions that she was the killer,” says Glass.

When psychopaths cry, Glass says they will often wipe underneath each eye, one at a time. “When people cry genuine tears they cry with both eyes, and so they will tend to wipe both eyes at once.”

In their original context, Dr. Glass’ observations clearly pertained to video footage (not a still image). Dr. Glass’ web site includes a blog wherein her observations consistently describe analysis of subjects in context and motion (utilizing photographs to illustrate the body language she described in a broader context throughout). Nowhere in her writings did we locate an example of her making such a definitive diagnosis based upon a single still image, nor of her throwing around severe diagnostic language such as “psychopath.”

We contacted Dr. Glass regarding the meme and the use of language from her 2013 book The Body Language of Liars. Dr. Glass told us she was aware of the quote’s newfound popularity and was deeply dismayed by the lengths to which her words and work had been misconstrued due to the meme (and related articles).

Dr. Glass strongly repudiated the assertions of the meme, noting that the quote originally appeared in her 2013 book and was used for the Business Insider piece in a very different context. Moreover, she stated that she would never engage in body language analysis so flippantly, nor did she consider the subject matter of the meme appropriate for such observations. Mostly, Dr. Glass was dismayed at the virality of a grossly misconstrued, unrelated, out-of-context quote from her book in a meme that misrepresented her work.

According to Dr. Glass, the thrust of the meme is unequivocally false. Whether folks believe President Obama’s tears at the 5 January 2016 appearance were legitimate or not, the meme based on that moment in no way represents the analytical work of the body language expert to whom it is attributed.

San Bernadino Terrorist Sayed Farouk’s ‘Nervous’ Body Language Foretold His Actions

Screen Shot 2015-12-03 at 7.22.55 AM

http://www.amazon.com/Guide-Identifying-Terrorists-Thru-Language/dp/192987345X/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1449156160&sr=8-2

With regard to the recent terrorist Sayed Farouk who along with a woman terrorist and another male terrorist, killed and wounded close to 30 people at a holiday party in Bakersfield, a  man who had been working in the Redlands  area said he noticed a half-dozen Middle Eastern men in the area in recent weeks  around the area.  There was something about these men that bothered him. Later he told reporters that he felt suspicious about these men and their behavior. But he decided to mind his own business. At first he wanted to report them to law enforcement, but later he decided not to report anything. The reason he decided to keep his mouth shut  was  that he did not want to be accused of being a “racist “or be accused of  racially profiling those people.

Had he trusted his instincts, not worried about being politically correct or being called a “racist” and said something to authorities perhaps Sayed Farouk, who along with a woman terrorist and another male terrorist, would not have killed and wounded close to 30 people at a holiday party in Bakersfield.

The lesson here is that if you see something that doesn’t sit well with you, say something. That is the message that Homeland Security has pounded away at in their advertising . Actor James Woods said something to the pilots and stewardesses when he unknowingly sat near the 911 terrorists who were doing a test run. Sometimes, saying something is not enough. You have to do something like the brave people did who subdued the shoe bomber and  the underwear bomber and most recently the would be train bomber in Paris

Terrorism  is real! It is here to stay around the world!   It can happen anywhere, just like it happened in  Bakersfied, California. This incident  has closed the minds of previously open- minded people  in welcoming people crossing our  boarders.

But it is not just immigrants crossing  the  boarders. It is citizens living among us doing things like you and me. They are  living in our neighborhoods and going to the same schools, going to the same shopping centers and  attending the same schools as our children. They may even sit near us, just as Mr. Farouk sat near many of his innocent colleagues  at the Health Department where he worked for several years.

The one thing that stood out with Sayed Farouk before he left the holiday party and secured his two colleagues dressed in black battle gear to shoot up a room of  innocent people, was that he was  reported to look very “nervous”.  Without any ammunition  in his hands he appered fidgety and nervous for no reason.  He appeared  sweaty in an air conditioned room. Many survivors reported that he  also looked very nervous andagitated.This is typical of  those who are ready to commit acts of terror. What has happened is that their autonomic nervous system is kicking in before they do something egregious.

This is one of the key body language signals of a terrorist – being  in an anxiety ridden or nervous  state. I along with  my co- author D. Vincent Sullivan, former FBI Special Agent  discuss this in our book “A Guide to Identifying Terrorists Thru Body Language”

Apparently Sayed left the party  in this nervous and agitated state. It was so jarring that many of the survivors reported it. Had many of the partygoers known that this was an extreme danger sign, many would have left the premises immediately for fear Sayed would return and do something drastic, which he did.

There are body language signs which may give away important clues as to whether or not someone is going to do harm to you. My co-author who was a member of the FBI Joint Terrorist Force and Head of the Behavioral Analysis Program at the FBI can vouch for this.

That is why you MUST read out book. There is no question in our minds and in the minds of those who have read our book that  can help save your life! No one is safe any longer! You MUST know how to recognize the body language signals of any potential terrorist threat.

Trump’s Body Language and Delivery Wins in Third Debate Despite Insulting Questions As Rubio and Cruz Impresses

  1. Screen Shot 2015-10-28 at 7.48.47 PM

When Donald Trump was asked the most ugly and disrespectful question by  cnbc’s John Harwood, who publicly called him a narcissist and then further insulted Trump by calling him a cartoon character, Trump appropriately responded that ‘ it was not a nicely stated question.” He then went on to respond in a calm and collected manner. He was also the most real  and genuine in terms of his demeanor and what he said. For instance  he was the only candidate who gave an honest and open answer to  the question regarding his flaw ( that he was too trusting and he doesn’t forgive).

He was the only candidate who answered the question openly and honestly. The others all went into a rehearsed rhetoric  that had nothing to do with addressing their flaw. Instead they used that time to address what they felt was important in their campaign.This turned many people off.

Screen Shot 2015-10-28 at 8.08.15 PM

One of the biggest turnoffs was when Huckabee said he didn’t have any flaws and then went on to say to ask his wife. He did not gain any Presidential points for that. He was also rehearsed and made body language gestures which were contrived. His facial language did not reflect that he was being genuine.

Screen Shot 2015-10-28 at 8.35.14 PM

Carla Fiorino had the worst body language throughout the evening which made her appear annoying. Her cocked head made her seem insecure and her tone was very defensive. When she said that he flaw was that she didn’t smile and then went off topic it was a turn off. The tone of her voice needs a lot of work. A while back  Donald Trump made reference to her looks as he asked how people could look at her for four years. I say, how can anyone listen to that voice for 4 years as it is so annoying and off putting. She loses the message she is trying to send because  of it. Also annoying, are the extraneous movements she makes when she speaks. One could also see a glimpse into her character as she mentions her former boss  as an endorsement and claims he said that in retrospect she did things right. Then when the character  flaw of her boss is brought up, she immediately throws him under the bus and distances herself from him and says that is why they didn’t get along. To me it showed a lack of loyalty as she was willing to turn on a dime if it would make her look good. To many that was a turn off.

Screen Shot 2015-10-28 at 8.21.16 PM

And someone who has an equally annoying vocal tone is Ben Carson. His voice with his monotonous drone that dies off at the end of when he speaks  puts  one to sleep. He too loses his message because of his voice. His voice lacks energy and passion.  His mono-faced expression also lacks enthusiasm and confuses his message.

Screen Shot 2015-10-28 at 8.01.49 PM

While his gestures were a bit contrived at times and his voice  and delivery stilted Marco Rubio came across as very level headed and in control. He came across as a peacemaker who wouldn’t take the bait when he was insulted. This was evident in his retort to Jeb Bush, who came across as weak and whiney. Rubio took the high road which made him sound like a leader. While he was bashed by Bush, Rubio responded in an opposite manner as he said he had respect for Bush. He also said he was not in competition with anyone on the stage and refused to say negative things about them. This gave Rubio points while the bashing and whining Bush lost many points.

Screen Shot 2015-10-28 at 8.37.45 PMWhile his pitch is a bit too high and his voice is whiney Ted Cruz said the best thing of the evening. He was real and genuine and said what was on the mind of many viewers. He called the panel on their ugly questions and what many felt was unprofessional behavior.

” The questions that have been asked so far in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media,’ Cruz said. He then went on to say,  ‘This is not a cage match. And, you look at the questions — “Donald Trump, are you a comic-book villain?” “Ben Carson, can you do math?” “John Kasich, will you insult two people over here?” “Marco Rubio, why don’t you resign?” “Jeb Bush, why have your numbers fallen?”‘How about talking about the substantive issues the people care about?’

CNBC host John Harwood didn’t like that so he tried to go to another candidate and discuss  another issue, but Cruz wouldn’t let him. He called Harwood on his toxic behavior and asked  ‘You don’t want to hear my answer?’
to which Harwood sharply responded, in a nasty tone ‘You spent your time on something else.’

Cruz clearly got points for this as he showed that he was direct and called it like it is.

So the winners of the evening in terms of their body language, facial language an delivery were Trump, Rubio, and Cruz. The loser of the evening was the nasty CNBC panel who were out to be provocative in an attempt to garner a name for themselves and increase ratings. But unfortunately for them, their attempts backfired.

Democratic Debate Body Language: Sanders Passion, Down Home Style and Hillary’ Warm, Poised Control

Screen Shot 2015-10-13 at 10.42.38 PM

All politics aside, if there was a winner in terms of body language and delivery in the first  Democratic debate it would be a tie between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Saunders. All politics aside she has made significant positive changes in terms of her delivery since she first announced her candidacy. She was warm, engaging, handled herself well under pressure, smiled more, was respectful to her fellow candidates when they spoke had appropriate gestures which matched what she was saying and only on a few occasions  did the silly political gesture of pressing her thumb and two fingers together when she emphasized points.  She was also strong voiced and spoke loudly when she expressed her disagreemt. This was in stark contrast to her previous public speeches where she was robotoc and monotone.  During this debate, she  had excellent posture and moved more  fluidly than she had in the past. She seemed very comfortable and was not  stiff and mechanical as she had been in the past. She expressed a range of emotiona and appeared more genuine and real than she shad presented in the past

Screen Shot 2015-10-13 at 10.43.33 PM

Bernie Sanders was warm and engaging as well. He had a down home style that was very appealing as it seemed as though he was talking directly to you. He is tone sounded like a familiar uncle. While he had a somewhat cartoonish Elmer Fudd type  accent, it was rather appealing. He was the most passionate of all the candidates in terms of his delivery. Sometimes it was over the top but her was very watchable, much like Donald Trump in terms of his  of not being reserved about speaking his mind without worries of political correctness. He made many open handed gestures where you often saw the palm of his hand, indicating his openness and having  nothing to hide. His body language and gestures matched what he said.

Screen Shot 2015-10-13 at 10.42.28 PM

While the handsomest candidate was O’Malley, after hearing him speak in his monotonous droning voice that was muffled and breathy, he lost a lot of points.  He was so monotone, staccato, and boring in his delivery that it negated his good looks and whatever he had to say. While he seemed cordial and polite, he was so boring that it was very easy for the viewer to tune out when she spoke. His absence of inflection and vocal enthusiasm could have easily put some to sleep.

Screen Shot 2015-10-13 at 10.43.52 PM

The same was true for  Chafee who had a high pitch tinny sounding voice. It did not have a leadership sound. There was a significant whine to his tone which was not appealing. You really heard the whine when she talked about the first time he voted and made a lame excuse about his father’s death which did not put him in a good light. He also smiled inappropriately and his gestures often didnt match what he was saying. He didnt sound like  a leader in terms of his delivery and presentation

Screen Shot 2015-10-13 at 10.44.10 PM

Webb appeared angry with a fixed scowl on his face. His posture was too rigid and mechanical . So was his facial expression. He was not engaging but consistently angry sounding. His staccato tone was also off putting.

It is clear that Webb, Chafee, and O’Malley need some serious voice and speech and body language coaching if they plan on getting their message heard in the second debate. Communication  skills are key to winning a Presidency. If you are boring,  monotonous, whiney, or your body language doesn’t match what you say, people are turned off with you.

Once again I will reiterate that this is not a political blog and that this is not about politics but rather about their delivery in terms of how the candidates presented themselves in front of  voters.

BODY LANGUAGE OF 13 YOUTUBE STAR CALEB LOGAN BRATAYLEY VERY ODD BEFORE HE DIED

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 12.21.51 PM

Thirteen year old youtube sensation Caleb Logan Bratayley was a star.  He had “it” as they say in Hollywood- good looks, a brightness, and an effervescent personality. He was highly watchable on his family’s daily vlog. Then all of a sudden this boy is dead. The family released a statement that he died of :natural causes.”  There is nothing natural about a 13 year old dropping dead for no reason. They also left a  rather strange and disturbing  statement  at the end of their vblog  https://youtu.be/oZpJN86pNoA  where they said

” Unfortunatey Caleb passed away right after we made the video. He will never get to meet his future self. None of us will and we are sad because he could have been great. “

Then they go on to say to kiss your kids and tell them that you love the everyday. “You never know what day will be their last.”
WHAT????? The last thing parents think of is that their child will die before them. The Bratayley’s giving encouraging advice for people to kiss their kids is absurd to me in my view in light of their circumstance.

It may perhaps  show that this family may have been more concerned about their youtube presence and their vlog and their 15 minutes of fame.

In closely examining the boy’s last video I found it strange. While he and his 2 sisters are eating breakfast,  he can barely focus  and looks out of it. His eyes are half closed  as you can see below.

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.28.13 AM

Then he looks into the distance and doesn’t focus n the question he is asked by his mother.

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.28.21 AMScreen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.33.02 AM

His eyes look even more at half mast. As he slowly chews his muffin, he suddenly closes his eyes as he can barely keep them open.The muffin suddenly drops out of his hand.

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.35.28 AMScreen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.36.46 AM

His head and body collapses on to the counter. After a few seconds he lifts his head up and holds up his head with his hand. You hear the mother saying  that he’s not a morning person. What???? The child just collapsed on the counter and this is what she says? I personally found that disturbing.

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.39.41 AM

Unsteadily, he  rocks back and forth in his seat as he still can barely keep his eyes open. Perhaps the mother needed to interject whether the child was Ok at this point.

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.41.41 AMScreen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.43.04 AM

He then saunters over to the sink where he looks off to the side and leans over the counter as though he is not feeling well. He  remains in that position for a few seconds.  His mother who is filming the entire time neglects to address this. Instead she says “Isn’t he cute?’  I would have asked if the boy was OK at that point.

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.45.32 AMScreen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.49.28 AM

He then turns around and stumbles twice  as he walks and eventually ends up lying down on the couch. The mother doesn’t seem to notice as she is too busy trying to be cute for the camera talking about how she will film how the “Bratayley eat lunch.”

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.52.51 AM

Then he buries his head in his arms as he continues to lie on the couch. He then moves his head around to get into a more comfortable position.

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.55.48 AM

Next we see a shot of the boy not looking great as he stumbles around. Then he mumbles that he caught the camera he almost dropped which sounded to many people  like he said “he dropped a narcotic”. He may or may not have said that.  But he looks a little too surprised and reactive for this as he opens his eyes widely and does a second take of surprise.

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.57.57 AMScreen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.58.04 AM

But he looks a little too surprised and reactive after he says  this. Then seconds later  he oddly shuts his eyes as if he is doing a double take and so surprised that he caught the camera he was about to drop. Then he opens his eyes wide and looks into the camera  seconds later and says WOW!  My reaction to his was  what did he say?  Did he say  maybe  he “dropped a narcotic” like many thought he said.  Many may  hear that and  may  think that his reaction was akin to those may have ingested a narcotic with slow reaction time and being amazed at the most benign occurrence and pondering over it.  But it should be pointed out that there is some question as to exactly what he said (dropping a camera etc.)  but his mumbling was cause for concern.

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 12.07.17 PMScreen Shot 2015-10-05 at 12.08.38 PM

He then seems confused as he tries to answer a question as he continues to mumble. He can barely focus and  read the question he is supposed to answer as he stammers and stumbles over his words as he reads the question-” What he would ask his future self.” He then mumbles  and slurs his words “Is Taco Bell still around?”

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 12.12.21 PMScreen Shot 2015-10-05 at 12.15.30 PM

Then he looks pained and looks away from the camera as he mumbles what he would really ask is if there are any new sports. He then licks his lips which may indicate that he is getting cotton mouth or that his mouth is dry. Perhaps  that was another indication that something was not right with him.

He then says he would ask if there are any new sports. He looks pained as he says this. Then he stcks out hs tongue and makes an inappropriate motor boat type of noise.It made no sense in terms of the context in which he was speaking.

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 12.17.19 PMScreen Shot 2015-10-05 at 12.20.02 PM

Then he does something that is even more absurd. He pulls his cheeks and asks if his cheeks look fat. This is clearly a young man that has spent too many hours in front of the camera as his vanity seems to have gotten best of him. It made no sense whatsoever. Then he scrunches up is face and begins to make absurd noises and sounds no one can understand.

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 12.21.51 PMScreen Shot 2015-10-05 at 12.25.46 PM

Then he goes through an array of facial expressions that also make no sense as he seems to be mugging into the camera.

Then he goes back to the question he was asked and mumbles something about his 5 second earlier self talking to his other self. It  sounded like something someone who may possibly  be  high on something would ponder about.

He continues to make  more inappropriate and over the top facial expressions  as you see above.

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 12.27.44 PM

He continues to mumble and make inappropriate noises. Then we see a statement on the video that the boy “unforuntaley” died shortly after doing this video.

WHAT???? It was such a cold statement and not a normal reaction from any parent who just lost a child. Also who would be releasing a videotape of something like his if the person just died? I personally found that to be problematic

This is makes me very concerned to wonder whether  that something was wrong with this boy. Did the  parents neglect to take care of the problem. We don’t know at this point. Many questions arise.

Was he on medication and had a bad reaction to it?

Did he have an underlying illness?

Did he have some underlying neurolgical condition that affected his behavior ?

Did he take narcotics?

Did he commit suicide?

Was there foul play?

These are fair questions to ask whenever a child dies unexpectedly. These questions in no way accuse or insinuate any of these  things happened. They are merely questions most people consider under these circumstances.

ADDENDUM

Now the parents have released a statement that Caleb had an undetected medical condition but have yet to release to the public what that medical condition was that took This young and precious boy’s life.

In my personal opinion, maybe if  these parents  had spent more time observing Caleb’s  off behavior when they were filming him right before he died and sought medical attention for him, perhaps his undetected medical condition may have been detected. It is just a cause for concern.

The parents have also decided to livestream their child’s funeral which I also personally found disturbing.

In any event it is very sad that this beautiful and vibrant young man who had  all the hopes of a full life ahead of him is gone. May he Rest In Peace.

ADDENDUM # 2

For Caleb’s and the Bratayley family fans I understand  that this is a very difficult time for many of you in terms of continuing to mourn Caleb’s sudden and unexpected death. If you are having difficulty coping, talk to someone who is a professional who can help you during your grieving process. Many of you may be going through the various stages of grief from shock, to denial to anger etc.

There have been a few  individuals who are clearly going through their anger phase of the grief process who have decided to take their anger out on this blog .  They have misinterpreted what was said in the blog and have made personal attacks.

No personal attacks, or hate will be tolerated in this blog. If you have a difference of opinion you are certainly  welcome to express yourself in a civil and respectful manner. Otherwise your comment will not be read and will be  be deleted. I stand by what I said in the blog. While I do not blame anyone for Caleb’s death, my only concern was that his parent kept filming when there was clearly something wrong as I saw it in the  video and relayed in these screen shots.  Perhaps the mother’s focus  was on her filming  that didn’t notice something was wrong. At any rate,  I  personally found that  to be disturbing .

ADDENDEM #3

It is also  important to note that if you are not  18 years of age or over you are not permitted to  comment on this blog.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Body Language Shows How Obama and Putin Can’t Stand One Another

No love lost between Putin and Obama as illustrated through their body language.

Screen Shot 2015-09-28 at 1.12.12 PM

Even though Russian President Vladimir Putin and the United States President Barak Obama were toasting one another and even though they sat down for formal talks for the first time in two years to discuss the Syrian situation, there was no love lost between them when they attended the UN Summit. These photos illustrate how the body does not lie.  While they may have agreed on various points, their body language was icy.

 In the above photo where they are toasting, Obama leans away from Putin. He wears a lot of tension on his forehead and tightness in his jaw, which shows anger. While Putin tried to show a pleasant smile, he is not fooling anyone. His smile is not genuine as his lips are pursed. There is no teeth showing and the apples of his cheeks are not raised. It shows that he too is harboring anger towards Obama, even though he tries to not show it.

Screen Shot 2015-09-29 at 7.16.26 AM

Then after their formal meetings, they did an obligatory photo op for the press which only lasted 13 seconds. They both could not wait to get away from one another, Their handshake validates their mutual disdain as Obama ties to fake a smile, but his lower  jaw is tight as his lips are pursed with anger.  His body is stiff. There is a large gap between them, distance wise, which illustrates the distance they are feeling with one another.  Putin is not smiling and this time, he  is finding it difficult to eek out a phony smile for the camera. His true feelings towards Obama are reflected on his face.

When you look at their hands, you see a lot of tension their grip which indicates that  no doubt a power grip was taking place in terms of showing who had the stronger handshake.

Screen Shot 2015-09-29 at 7.15.56 AM

Before they actually shook hands you can see Obama looking down and his shoulders a bit hunched as he dreaded what he had to do. Yet he was the first to reach of his hand. Putin appears to be giving Obama the literal “cold shoulder” as the shoulder which is closest to Obama is raised and his head is cocked. This too indicates that he is not too thrilled about having to do this photo op and  making like everything is fine between them, when it is anything but fine.

Screen Shot 2015-09-29 at 7.34.02 AM

Finally their dreaded Press conference is over and Obama is two paces ahead of Putin as with a sour puss,indicating he can’t get away quickly enough .Putin follows behind with an equally sour puss expression, indicating that the feeling is mutual. Obama seems to be walking quickly as he heads toward the exist while Putin keeps his distance.

Screen Shot 2015-09-27 at 8.12.25 AM

Here is Obama days earlier when he was with the President of China Xi Jinping. There is a stark difference between Obama’s reaction to Putin and his reaction to Xi. Look at Obama’s genuine smile with his cheeks raised, his eyes crinkled and his teeth showing. He is also leaning in towards XI and Xi is doing the same. Xi also shows a genuine like towards Obama as he too  exhibits a genuine smile and leans in towards Obama.
