— -- President Obama was caught in an awkward moment and had a priceless reaction when China's president simply refused to answer a reporter's question.

The American delegation apparently convinced the Chinese Presdient Xi Jinping to take questions directly from the press-- something that he very rarely does. But when he didn't like a question from a New York Times reporter, he simply ignored it and asked for the next question.

The awkwardness was palpable when President Xi took his earpiece out after the question. Obama looked out the reporters, gave a little smirk and a shrug.
