Honestly thought that Obama comment about Putin was a satirical tweet until I saw it repeated by others. #PutinSlouch

No, he really said it. Here’s how President Obama described Putin at today’s presser:
Obama just said Putin has a slouch, like the bored kid in the back of a classroom. That oughta hit the old reset button!

To quote Jerry Seinfeld, “This has ‘international incident’ written all over it”:
Also, I don't know that much about foreign policy, but mocking Putin's slouch might not be the best way to improve relations

Obama says that Putin "has a kind of slouch, looking like a bored kid" in meetings. Russians do not take personal mockery well! Trouble!

But maybe something good can still come out of this:
In an earlier era in world culture, the "Putin Slouch" would already be a dance craze.

Who says it can’t still be one?
I be all slouchin' over my laptop like Putin.

Will it catch on like the Safety Dance? It’s still too soon to tell. But one thing’s for sure: we’re pretty curious to see how Putin responds.

Zinger? We’re pulling for him to challenge Obama to a wrestling match.
