A reporter from the German Press Agency had the opportunity to ask President Barack Obama a question during his joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and she took full advantage. She asked what’s being called a “trolltastic” question about Obama’s “red line” in Ukraine, and how “Nobel Laureate Obama” could handle the situation. The Daily Caller,
“President, you said you have not yet made a decision as to whether weapons ought to be delivered to Ukraine,” she asked in a translated question. “What would be your red line? What would be the red line that needs to be crossed for you to decide a — an armament of the Ukrainian army? And what do you think will this hold by way of a promise, because the chancellor said it will make matters worse? What can the Nobel Laureate Obama do more to defuse the situation?”
Obama audibly sighed after hearing the question. “Do you want to go first on this?” he asked Merkel.
