Barack Obama: NOT Checking Out Girl!

by at . Comments

A picture is worth 1,000 words. Those 1,000 words might just be wrong.

A photo of Barack Obama allegedly ogling Mayara Tavares, a 17-year-old junior delegate to the G8 in Italy, has caused quite the stir online in the last 48 hours.

Here's the image in question, in case you have not seen it. Looks a lot like the U.S. President (and French chief exec Nicolas Sarkozy) are enjoying the view, no?

Yeah. Neither smooth, nor becoming of a father of two and a man of Barack's stature. But apparently this was just bad luck for our Commander-in-Chief.

A video of the incident shows that there was likely no ogling involved, rather, the President was snapped at this unfortunate angle at the wrong moment:

It appears that the Prez wasn't sneaking an inappropriate peak; instead, he was just helping another young delegate down the stairs at the time.

Sarkozy's intentions? Not as clear.
