LOL, I was just thinking about that!
Thinking if I was outside at a table with a cold Tiger beer, it would be much more enjoyable. :cool

But I'm inside, at my desk, with a RedBull. ;)

I'm thinking a mix of Jamaican and Philippines. :DN4

LOL! I think he was already there earlier, in meetings?

That WAS funny!

I did notice President & wife had a slightly bigger smile for photo with Trump, more so than with other late arrivals. :)

Lots of empty seats?

NOW I know what the H.E. means in front of their names. :doh

If a seat is empty... it means Duterte said "get him out!!"

... In the Philippines.. that means take em out and shoot em.

So true. I think Justine is enjoying this though. ;)

The guys in pink. Just sayin'.

President Trump looks very bored and I bet he is thinking about business stuff right now. :)

OH I know.

I like this part, waiting for NZ & USA :)

ETA: I guess it was only the youth of the Asian nations. Too bad.

So Trump exits right stage and everyone else goes to the left. More meetings?

NZ is not part of ASEAN.. as such... we are regular "hangers on"

It looks VERY disorganized.. Trump and other leaders left wondering WTF is happening. :95

I am conscious of the fact that Trump is WELL SEPARATED from any US SS where he is :eek

Yeah, I noticed no SS anywhere. They are a little behind schedule.

If it weren't for all the picture taking, this thing could be half over. :roll

Thanks for the live stream, lmk if you see another one later on.

I wont say it's a COMPLETE waste of time... but it comes close!!!

It is good for leaders, and teams to meet in person... but this long drawn out procession to multiple places is ridiculous.

Pre-prepared speeches full of clichés get people nowhere!

Also.. all the "dressing up" is just silly.

I seem to recall that it was a "bit of fun" at the END of one of the gatherings (APEC?) where leaders were given some outfit representing the host nation just for a photo op. Now it seems daft outfits are required on SEVERAL occasions.. and multiple photo ops.

Yeah... I googled... surprised to find that BILL CLINTON started it at APEC :wall

Quote:
The custom was established in 1993 when former US President Bill Clinton handed out bomber jackets to his counterparts. It has since become a tradition in the following years and a highlight of the often serious meetings.


Image

There has been some daft outfits over the years :doh

2006 - Hanoi, Vietnam (George W)
Image


2008 - Lima, Peru (W again)
Image

2014 - Beijing, China (Obama)
Image

It seems to me... 2017 Trump got off lightly... he should QUIT while he is ahead... stop going to these daft events :cool

Oh how embarrassing! Willy started it? Well, he had nothing else to do... but I bet handing out the bomber jackets started as a bribe thing. ;)

President Trump would never put one of these on, I guarantee it. So ridiculous.. looks like hospital gowns.

Funny you googled this. I was going to go back and look where Obama was standing and seated during photos.

:)

ETA: Great photos, Rumpole. I got distracted looking at Obama-Putin photos at these gatherings, and the G8, G20.

NOT friendly at all!

I think I've already seen that "live lunch stream". That's a round-table discussion, then there were a few people speaking, one gave a report. To me that does not look like where lunch would be served. And of all the shots they had I never saw Trump.

The White House YT started streaming right before Trump was supposed to speak, and it still says "Beginning Shortly"...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmLfgp94av0

I think he will speak. I'm in it for the long-haul. :)

ETA: I could be wrong.
