Not Just Hollande

As hilariously awkward as that was for the French president, it bears a striking resemblance to our own president's experience the last time NATO held its summit in Germany. Maybe it's that elusive "German humor" in action? I don't know why else they wouldn't prep visiting leaders for the troop review.

Or maybe it's just the sharp right turn that flummoxed Francois and Barack.
