Barack Obama took off to Vietnam on Sunday to push the Trans-Pacific Partnership and end the decades-old arms embargo forbidding America from supplying the nation with military-grade weaponry, and while there he’s managed to upset quite a few people. He snapped a picture with the country’s leader, and when people saw what was directly behind the two men, they became justifiably outraged.
Of course, Obama’s visit to Vietnam has included plenty of his typical apologies, which shouldn’t surprise anyone since that’s all he ever seems to do when he travels abroad. But his apologies really aren’t the worst part of his trip this time around, if you can believe it.
Several months ago, Obama took a “historic” trip to Cuba, and while there, he had a picture of himself taken as he stood in front of a sculpture of the gruesome revolutionary, Che Guevara. Always one to outdo himself, Obama decided to give Americans another slap in the face during his most recent trip, and this time around it’s a serious insult to Vietnam veterans across the nation.
In the picture below, you’ll notice Obama standing with Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang, which really isn’t a big deal until you look above the two men. That’s when you see the bust of infamous Vietnamese communist leader Ho Chi Minh, the brutal man responsible for the slaughter of tens of thousands of American soldiers.

Obama loves him some communists, doesn’t he? For those thinking it might have been entirely coincidental that the bust appeared above the two men, other pictures show otherwise.
In fact, it appears as if the President of the United States of America intentionally went out of his way to have his picture taken under the late leader of North Vietnam. Check them out below:
If you’re wondering what other people thought about the outrageous photo-op, here’s how some twitter users reacted:

Indeed. It’s beyond a disgrace the leader of the nation that has taken the strongest stance of any in the world against communism and socialism appears to honor former communist leaders whenever he gets the opportunity.
They say you can judge a lot about a man by his actions alone. With that in mind, what is anyone to think of Obama after seeing the things he’s done as president?
