Did Obama commit illegal sexual harassment? No Republican could get away with what you’ll see in the embedded video below.
Aboard a campaign flight, then-Senator Obama is talking on a cellphone as he arises from his seat; nearby a female reporter catches a glance of something that makes her uncomfortable, sending her skirmishing to the back of the plane.
Obama, rather than downplay the awkward display, instead plays it up, positioning himself so the gathered reporters have little choice but to take in his chauvinistic performance.
Meanwhile, a female voice can be heard ordering everyone to sit down, ostensibly so they can get a better look. The gathered female reporters laugh at the scene, further encouraging Obama’s bawdy behavior.
The video, originally shot by CNN cameras, emerged Tuesday on Twitter, where it spread quickly.
It’s been on youtube since 2009!
