Obama made this gesture towards Fox News reporter Bret Baier many times throughout the interview. Perhaps one of the most offensive gestures we have is finger-pointing. Point your own finger at someone right now. Does it remind you of someone from your childhood? A parent? It has negative connotations around the globe. Obama tried to take a dominant position in the interview with this gesture, as in “father/son”. He shows no respect for the reporter.
