From Fox News: The White House on Friday rebuked two visitors who were photographed last week at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue flipping the middle finger below a portrait of the late President Ronald Reagan.
The guests had been invited to a reception last Friday marking gay
pride month. The images of them -- with both middle fingers raised,
pointing up toward Reagan -- were first published by Philadelphia Magazine.
The White House did not approve.
"While the White House does not control the conduct of guests at
receptions, we certainly expect that all attendees conduct themselves in
a respectful manner. Most all do," Shin Inouye, a White House
spokesman, said. "These individuals clearly did not. Behavior like this
doesn’t belong anywhere, least of all in the White House."
Photographer Zoe Strauss and Matty Hart, national director for public
engagement at the group Solutions for Progress, had posted the images
of themselves to Facebook.
Hart, under his, wrote simply: "F--- Reagan."
