40 Images That Political Leaders Don’t Want You To See
Living a life in politics seems to be a very stressful one. Being a political leader means being in the public spotlight and held account for their actions more than anyone else in any other profession. They are after all the people we have elected to lead us as a nation. Here is a list of photos that political leaders wish they had to power to completely rid the earth of them.
This politician can't help taking a selfie of himself. Even during a formal even such as the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) summit he needs to make sure to update his Tinder profile. Just another day in the life of politics...
Secrets don't make friends. Whatever it is that Silvio Berlusconi whispers into the ear of French President Nicolas Sarkozy must have been overheard by the German Chancellor Angela Merkel as she is seen giggling. This photo was taken at the final press conference about the family Banks and financial groups at the Elysee palace in Paris, France.
As we can tell in this photograph, Russian President Vladimir Putin has no interest in assisting the Queen of England. U.S. President Barack Obama and New Zealand’s Governor-General Jerry Mateparae seem to be the only gentleman as they help Queen Elizabeth II down the steps during the D-Day Memorial. Looks like Putin is contemplating what he's going to be having for dinner later tonight.
Seems there are members of political parties that are just as big WWE fans as the next guy body slamming their little little brother on his bed. In this shot, Rada deputy Oleg Barna throws out Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk from the tribune. That's what he gets for presenting him a bouquet of roses during parliament in Kiev.
In this shot the former U.S. President George W bush seems to appear a bit concerned... He is seen meeting with Darfur Human Rights Activists but given that he's not exactly sure who he's talking to or what they look like he is a bit more on edge than usual.
Living with Hillary Clinton after having had an affair with another woman seems to have taken a toll on the former U.S. President Bill Clinton. In this picture the former president is seen out of the golf course with the current President Barack Obama. More than likely they are using this free time to do what men do best, which is complain about their nagging wives.
In this photo the former French President, Jacques Chirac, gives a kiss to a young girl. It is not the most flattering image of him but it is certainly an adorable one. Setting the right kind of example when you are in a position of power is one of the most important things you can do as a leader. Even if that means looking goofy in the process.
Most of Hollywood seems to lean towards the liberal side of the political Spectrum. So when Taylor Swift and extreme Republican Sarah Palin were seated next to each other, you could cut the tension between the two with a chainsaw. The two seemed to be giving each other dirty looks throughout the entire duration they were in close proximity of each other.
The women have it so much harder than the men do, I mean have you ever tried wearing high heels? In this shot Helle Thorning-Schmidt, the Danish Prime Minister, takes an unfortunate tumble down the steps of Elysee Palace. With feels like that she's going to need to hire some security with quicker reflexes.
By this Point First Lady Michelle Obama has gotten over taking selfies. In this Photograph the Danish Prime Minister is taking a selfie with the U.S. president and David Cameron. Michelle was asked to be in the picture but she was too interested good what was going on.
It's just Bill being Bill. At least he was able to keep his eyes on the camera rather than her cleavage as this photograph was being taken. The woman does seem to be a little taken back by the former U.S. presidents hand on her arm. Bill just can't resist himself.
This baby is speaking for the rest of the nation in this photo. What's even more amazing is how quick this baby went from smiling and giggling to crying as if it just saw the movie It. When you are one of the most unpopular presidents ever to have sit in the Oval Office, this is the reaction you get from the people.
It can get very windy over in London. Queen Elizabeth is already used to the wind which is why she's always wearing her stylish hats. however First Lady Michelle Obama is not quite as used to the wind gusts and is seen here looking like a member of the rock band Kiss. She is at least in good spirits as she is trying to keep her dress from blowing up like Marilyn Monroe.
For French President Nicolas Sarkozy, life is a dance floor. Here he is seen receiving a dance from an unidentified woman at the Yamoussoukro airport. The Ivory Coast President Alassane Ouattara applauds the good times. These people really seem to know how to party!
If you are a political figure at a beauty pageant you better be sure to remember that there are cameras taking pictures at any given moment. Here the former prime minister of Italy Silvio Berlusconi is caught red-handed checking out the winners assets. This woman was crowned Miss Italy in 2008 and apparently the former prime minister agrees with the decision.
We've all been there, the moment we go to high-five or shake someone's hand but they don't notice, leaving us to look like the awkward fool. Well that can happen to anyone even US President Barack Obama as he tries to shake hands with the secretary-general of the Gulf Cooperation Council Abdul-Latif bin Rashid Al Zayani, of Bahrain. Don't wanna be the guy that leaves Obama hanging like that, bad form!
Some of us never really mature and grow up from the bratty children we once were. Al Gore is one of those people. Here he is seen hissing at this little girl any homeless children center after she told him she was a Republican.
Big Bill is getting his stretch on before the marathon. He just needs to be a little more careful about his choice of shorts when he decides to incorrectly stretch his quads. This photographer almost got much more than he bargained for from this angle.
Although relations between the U.S. and Cuba have strengthened recently, that does not mean that people still do not hold grudges. It's going to take a little more time until the pain completely resides from the heart of President Raul Castro as he has seen rejecting the embrace Barack Obama in this photo.
W is getting a little too chummy with this turkey in this perfectly timed photo. This turkey named Liberty is giving the former U.S. President quite the surprise. The facial expression on Bush is priceless especially given the location of the turkeys beak...
It would be very interesting to know exactly what this little girl is staring at. the 2012 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney it seemed posing with students at Fairfield Elementary School. If this was any other situation most people would agree that this man should be kept at least 100 yards from any park or school.
Before anybody knew about the affair between President Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky this pup knew exactly what was going on. Fortunately for bill the dog was unable to spill his secret given its inability to speak. If only Hillary would have picked up on the scent like the dog did.
Most of the pictures we have seen of either friends or acquaintances kissing have been more passionate then this one. That is a shock simply because these two are married. Ted Cruz and his wife Heidi Cruz very very awkward kiss at one of the rallies before the senator dropped from the presidential race.
President Barack Obama has been known to be quite the Smooth Criminal. In this photo we see an awkward exchange between Aung San Suu Kyi and the U.S. president. Probably one of those moments where she went in for the hug and he went in for the kiss on the cheek resulting in the ever so formal kiss on the ear.
The poor guy to the right of President Obama (your left) was so excited to get a photograph of himself with the President. Unfortunately nobody believes that the framed picture hanging in his living room is of him. Barack photo blocks the poor guy after thinking that his hand was more worthy of being photographed than the young man's face.
The security detail can protect the First Minister of Scotland from gunfire, but not from random flying soccer balls it seems. First Minister Alex Salmond does not seem to possess any sort of natural athleticism as this ball bounces straight off his noggin. Next time a heads-up call might be greatly appreciated.
This appears to be the local Diner that Vice President Joe Biden frequently visits. He seems very comfortable here and familiar with the patrons. It even seems as if he is imposing on these two guys as they do not look too happy about him hogging all the action. She's happy though sitting on the lap of the vice president.
Not the night that Bill wanted to be posing for the cameras. He looks like he just came off a 2-week bender. Either that or this is the result of living with Hillary Clinton as your wife. Hopefully he'll have a little more time free up after this years election, for Bill's sake!
When you start poppin Viagra this is what happens. We already know Bill is a horny guy, but this guy just can't get enough. He must have really liked his sailboat or maybe he's just daydreaming about throwing Hillary over the side of it. Either way it's not the most flattering shot of the former president of the United States.
No eye contact, no smiles, these two give the impression that they don't really care for each other. U.S. President Barack Obama meets Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev at the Winfield House, a meeting that both seem to have been dreading since it was scheduled.
At first sight this may seem like tears of joy, but when you see that it is supreme leader Kim Jong Un that the children are with then the picture starts to become a bit more clear. Reacting exactly how they should when they see the boogeyman they are less than pleased to be forced to accompany him. He doesn't seem to mind the reaction as he has gotten quite used to it by now.
Once you realize that this is the President of France, it starts to make a little more sense. President Nicolas Sarkozy is awarding the Chevalier of the French order of Merit to Maud Fontenoy. He figures that after pinning the medal on her that he might as well cop a feel...
This little girl is not amused. Hillary tries to make a funny joke to make the little girl smile but instead it just made herself laugh while the little girl rolls her eyes in disapproval. Some of these kids are really hard to impress with all the humor they see in these cartoons nowadays.
Rahm Israel is the 55th mayor of Chicago. in this photo he is getting just a tad too cozy with Obama's Chief of Staff and Madam Speaker of the House. Given the body language of Nancy Pelosi it seems like there's much more going on here than meets the eye. These politicians need to learn to keep it in their pants while the cameras are on!
It's no secret that Senator John McCain is not the biggest fan of our current president. Whatever is going on in this picture it certainly does not make the senator look good. After a debate between the two, the Republican is making some very strange gestures which looks dirtier than I care to describe.
Yes, our current commander in chief is a happily married man, but that does not mean he has gone blind! You better believe that whoever that woman is, she has this shot framed and hanging in every room of her home. No better confidence boost than having POTUS check out your assets.
In this great shot Hillary gets caught checking out a very nice rack. I mean it's Christina Aguilera so it's kind of hard to fault Hillary for her wandering eyes. With Christina wearing a dress like that though it would be difficult for any pair of eyes to maintain eye contact with the diva. Anyone who have that big of a grin on their face!
Russian President Vladimir Putin gives the ol' Siskel & Ebert 2 thumbs up for this topless protester. The women in this protest are advocating against anti-gay laws and the president doesn't seem two mind at all. The look on his face makes it seem like a president has not seen any action in quite a while.
Kate Middleton shows off her Marilyn Monroe pose thanks to a sneaky gust of wind and a perfectly positioned photographer. The Duchess of Cambridge try keeping her dress down but had very little success. Given the little amount of effort she is putting into keeping it down she has probably used to wearing these sort of dresses in the wind.
If you know about the scandal that almost got Bill Clinton impeached then you already know exactly what is going on in this picture. The photo was taken only moments after his press conference about the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Bill doesn't need to look to his right to know full well the look that his wife is currently giving him. Not just for cheating on her but for being an idiot and doing it while he was the president of the United States.
