Russian News Anchorwoman Improvises To Show Her Love For Obama

..by Putin up her middle finger

As subtle as a sledgehammer.. and sickle (hat tip: Blazing Cat Fur)

There is an update to this story on the Blaze…. and in the interests of not completely pissing off the whole of Russia here it is:

The Russian anchor who appeared to “flip off” President Barack Obama on live TV while reading a news report may have meant the gesture for her studio crew, not as a sign of disrespect to Obama.

As The Blaze first reported Monday, anchor Tatiana Limanova was delivering a news report about Russian President Dmitry Medvedev’s appearance at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit. When she said Medvedev would be taking an APEC leadership role previous held by Obama, she held up her middle finger while reading his name.

But according to the Telegraph, Limanova — an award-winning senior anchor — may have believed she was off-camera at the time at the time she flashed the gesture. Sources told the newspaper she thought she was merely reading a voice-over and intended the sign for studio technicians who were “trying to put her off her stride.”
