He was not happy, not at all. Or perhaps, Obama was recalling his own embarrassing blunders like bowing to foreign leaders and giving junkie gifts to the Queen of England.

Regardless, when Chilean President Sebastian Pinera announced, “I’m going to sit at the president of the United States’ desk,” and then plopped himself down in Obama’s chair, Obama had that set jaw and squinty-eyed look of displeasure.

According to the Blaze, someone in the delegation asked Obama “how many other world leaders have ever sat at his desk?”

You can clearly hear Obama say, “He’s the only one.”

To be fair, it is the desk of the President of the United States.

Even former press secretary Dana Perino said sitting in the presidential office chair is a no-no.
