In New York, Noda met with Obama for the first time as prime minister.
Why so glum, guys?
But most importantly, why does Noda seem a half a foot taller than Obama? Noda is listed at 5 ft 7 while Obama is listed at 6 ft 1. Obama should tower over Noda. But in the picture, Noda seems to tower over Obama. How’d he pull that off? Did he take a page out of the North Korean diplomacy playbook?
If so, how’d he manage to do that when the meeting was in New York?
