Michelle Obama forgoes a headscarf and sparks a backlash in Saudi Arabia
Michelle Obama forgoes a headscarf and sparks a backlash in Saudi Arabia

Barack Obama was in Riyadh on Tuesday to pay his respects to the late Saudi King Abdullah. His visit, for which he cut short a much-hyped trip to India, underscores how important the U.S.-Saudi relationship remains to the American leadership. On social media, however, much of the attention has focused on something else: His wife's attire.

You are what other countries call, "The Ugly American." Ignorant and uneducated. You give the rest of us, who have respect for other cultures and customs, a bad name. The president and his wife are ugly Americans, unfortunately....an embarrassment.

By the way, the queen does not expect anyone to bow or kneel to her! lol

And you are what most intelligent people call..."the village idiot".

Do we expect..no DEMAND....other people of different cultures to wear american attire when they visit america?

Should we freak out when a visiting politician from India refuses to wear jeans?

Seriously...you defend such ignorant and hostile attitudes of a culture demanding a person wear THEIR attire? Yet you don't see your own hypocrisy.

You really are uneducated! Unknown to you, we have no dress code here in the USA because we have a racially and ethnically diverse population. I can't believe you think our dress code is jeans. OMG! That's hilarious!

The thing is, Michelle DID wear a headscarf when she was in Indonesia. There's a picture or two of her with it on, and I can say, it wasn't a pretty sight. But why did she wear it the one time, and not on the other?

Well if the SA protocol officer requested her wear a scarf ...then she was in error and insulted them. After all it's not like she had to make a public appearance like the President.

Out of curiosity anyone know Germany's Merkel went and did she scarf up?

After all...when in Rome...

Absolutely. I have traveled all over the world, and before I go to a different country, I always try to learn their customs. Example: When I traveled to Kuwait, even though it was 102 degrees F, I covered my arms....at least 1/2 way.

Another example...
It's an insult to tip in Japan, but you should always leave a tip in the USA. It's that simple.

You are the village idiot. Jeans are neither part of your religion nor your laws. If you can't respect the law of the land, whether you agree with it or not, you shouldn't visit.

Having said that, she shouldn't have visited anyway. US has been running round the globe trying to force democracy on democratic countries like Ukraine for decades. They've been murdering middle east rulers in the name of democracy. The Wests fawning over death of absolute ruler Abdullah just shows you are only a despot if you aren't buying enough arms from the west.
