        Almost like President Obama scolded him. Neither smiled when they were speaking and Brown just kind of looked slightly disheveled. I loved it!

          Can you find a clip of the particular moment or direct me to the particular x:xx of this video? I watched the last 2 minutes, but didn't catch the interaction you're mentioning. I think it was cut off too soon.

            It would be somewhere in this video:

            I have the volume muted. Her voice annoys me.

              Hansen Clarke and Obama's interaction at 13:30 is very interesting as well.

              I have to say, though, that many interactions as the President - and any President, mind you - enters and leaves come across as them ignoring or simply passing by a particular congressperson or senator due to the nature of the event. They have to shake the hand of practically every person of stature and then quickly move on to the next - which lends itself to the kindof exchange that you describe.
