[WATCH] Chilean president commandeers Obama's Oval Office desk
President Obama certainly doesn’t seem to have switch over much these days, including his desk in the Oval Office.
During his visit to the White Building last week, Chilean President Sebastian Piñera decided to take over the president’s desk – while the American commander-in-chief was in the cell.
“I’m going to sit at the President of the United States’ desk,” Piñera said, almost boldness anyone to challenge his breach of protocol.
But Obama and the rest of the live stood back as Piñera calmly walked around to Obama’s desk, sat in the armchair and calmly rested his arms on the Resolute desk , which has been used by a the better of presidents including George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
The Chilean president nonchalantly paused for a twinkling as cameras went off, smiling at the room and looking every bit as presidential behind the Elliptical Office desk as Obama stood back with the rest of the room laughing and looking not so amused.
