President Barack Obama greets the Prime Minister of Thailand, Yingluck Shinawatra. The UK tabloid Daily Mail accuses the president of flirting.

The Daily Mail has issued a tongue-in-cheek “‘report” that accuses President Barack Obama of flirting with the attractive Prime Minister of Thailand during his recent tour of Asia.

Said the U.K. paper:

“President Obama is practicing a new brand of foreign relations, appearing to flirt with Thailand’s attractive prime minister on his first stop of his three-day tour of Southeast Asia.

The president and Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra could be seen laughing together and exchanging playful glances through a state dinner at the Government House in Bangkok on Sunday.”

The conservative blog, The Drudge Report has followed through with its headline:

Here are photos of Obama with Yingluck Shinawatra; it clearly looks like a diplomatic trip to us, the first lady need not worry. What do you think?
