President Obama met with Japanese Prime Minister Abe on Tuesday. At a press conference in the Rose Garden, Obama praised Japan’s cultural influence on America. And what has the ancient and venerable nation of Japan given us? Emojis, of course! 😛
Yes, President Obama gave a big ol’ winky face to Prime Minister Abe. In recognizing Japan’s contributions, Obama singled out “karate, karaoke, manga, anime. And of course, emojis.”
Watch Prime Minister Abe’s face during Obama’s pronunciation, and let us know if he’s all *smiley face**party popper** or *head**gun*.
