White House Staff Annoyed With Selfie-Snapping French Journalists

The White House was apparently less than impressed by the hordes of French journalists taking selfies in the Oval Office during President Francois Hollande's recent visit with President Obama at the White House.

The journalists, being human, just couldn't help tweeting the pictures:

Ooh la la, as they say!

Well, everyone was saying that except staffers at the party-killing White House.

From France 24:

Canal Plus reporter Laurence Haim said irritated White House staff told the journalists it was “not the done thing” to take a picture of oneself with a mobile phone with two heads of state in the president’s official office.

Typical White House.
