On his show Thursday night, talk show host Jimmy Kimmel poked fun at The Drudge Report for considering President Barack Obama’s playful interaction with a Japanese robot to be the top news of the day.
Obama witnessed Honda’s ASIMO robot in action during a trip to Tokyo. The president bowed when meeting the humanoid robot, a fact that some conservatives media outlets apparently found quite troubling.
“You know, he bowed to the robot,” Kimmel explained. “This is the top story on the Drudge Report this morning: ‘U.S. president bows to Japanese robot.’ And Breitbart had a similar thing: ‘United States president Barack Obama bows to Japanese robot.’ As if he surrendered his nuclear arsenal to it. These robots are kind of creep, though.”
