But the president's most awkward moment was at the state dinner hosted by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.Yeah it was noted here that Obama's limo was stuck in a driveway in Ireland at the start of his European trip. I also heard about his attempts to mimic an Irish accent. Here's the state dinner moment that was quite painful to watch [VIDEO]
As Mr. Obama toasted the Queen and palace guests, the orchestra mistook a poignant pause for the end of his speech, striking up "God Save the Queen" early. The president continued over the music and lifted his glass, a gesture ignored by the Queen until the end of the song.
Mr. Obama president later joked with Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg that the mishap was "out of the movies," a phrase that could be used to described much of the president's European adventures.
