Newsreader flips Obama the bird

Never not funny

Newsreader flips Obama the bird

Sometimes newsreaders masks of perfection slip.

Case in point is Russian newsreader Tatiana Limanova who, when reading a report about Obama (we're not sure what she was saying exactly, our Russian desk is on holiday), flipped the middle finger.

While it's fair to say she probably didn't think her faux pas would be aired, the timing is not only perfect but she's also brilliantly nonchalant about it.

Not since Tomazc Shafernaker's slip up on the Beeb did we enjoy a video as much as this.

The full footage is below:
