Obama dissed by the press pool during meeting with the Australian PM.
As pool filed out, a reporter said, “Thank you, Mr. President.”
Someone told Potus it was an Australian.
“I knew it must have been an Australian because my folks never say thank you.”
At that, the entire American pool said in unison, admittedly with a bit of sarcasm, “Thank you, Mr. President.”
PM Gillard could be heard chiming in, “There are a few cheeky Australians here.”
