Picture of the Day: Obama Plays World's Tiniest Violin for Reporter

Obama pinching head.jpg

For the record, we're not sure what's going on here. It is entirely possible that President Obama is using an optical illusion to crush the head of Huffington Post political reporter Sam Stein, seen above wearing a blue blazer and tie, in this MSNBC footage of Obama's Monday news conference about the debt ceiling negotiations.

It is also possible that he and Stein are arguing about the size of spending cuts, or how much protein mix to add to a smoothie, or that Obama is asking for just a little more time to make his next move in a play-by-mail chess match.

We just don't know.
