Sex and racism in Obama photo stir



President Obama poses for a camera-phone photo with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Denmark's Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt.What's more scandalous: the selfie or the media's reaction?
US President Barack Obama's friendly photograph with Danish PM Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela's memorial service has one columnist writing that the US president acted like a "hormone-ravaged frat boy on a road trip to a strip bar".
The New York Post's Andrea Peyser had a look at the newswire photos of the event and contends that Mr Obama was too jovial and flirty in his interaction with Ms Thorning-Schmidt, a "Danish hellcat" who "hiked up her skirt to expose long Scandinavian legs covered by nothing more substantial than sheer black stockings".
