I hope – I really, really hope – that this picture of our president is a mistake.  He’s speaking in an elementary classroom.

Not a mistake as in “Photoshopped together from multiple sources”.  And hopefully not a mistake as in “I need two TelePrompTers and three monitors to speak to sixth graders”.

I hope this was a mistake in the scheduling department, where they sent out the full media support when they really needed a chair.

I hope.
