Danish TV Gives Obama The Jon Stewart Treatment

Mar 26, 2012 11:56am

Danish television was initially flattered that President Obama welcomed Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt to the Oval Office last month by pronouncing that the mighty Danes “punch above their weight in international affairs.”

Very flattering.

Except President Obama has also, in the very same Oval Office setting, found that “Norway punches above its weight.” Ireland, too. And the Netherlands. Even the Philippines.

The Danish television show Detektor brilliantly strings together the tape, Jon-Stewart style and finds President Obama’s speechwriters are doing a lot of cutting and pasting.
