4. Wow, what a difference in reactions.

 

I just looked at the photo for the first time, and my immediate reaction was that Obama was being patronizing by grabbing her. I've seen people in positions of power (male bosses in particular) do that to female employees and it's nearly always in the context of dominant behavior.

I'm actually a little shocked that Obama has his hand physically ON Brewer, and the outrage is that she's gesturing (without touching him). Was their outrage about him grabbing her and the stuff above is intended as a counterpoint? I don't know the background on it.
