Japanese Mortified By Obama’s bow? Uhh…..no.
Leave it to a clown like Sean Hannity to take a single quote by an American and interpret it to mean that the Japanese are “mortified” by Obama’s bowing before Emperor Akihito.
In the real world (a place far away from the planet Hannity resides on), few in the Japanese media said anything about Obama’s bow until they discovered Fox and other American media sources had made it into a big story. What we now have on our hands is a strange story about how many Americans have overreacted to simple bow and handshake. Unlike the bow itself, which drew little attention, this story actually does make America look stupid in the eyes of many Japanese viewers.
