It has happened again. Barack Obama, whose encounters of the buzzing kind have been noted numerous times during his presidency, had another episode Friday as he was praising same-sex "marriage" at the White House.
See the latest episode of the Obama Insect Chronicles:
Obama is talking about how in America people can write their own destiny when the fly lands on his shoulder and makes itself at home.
He continues speaking, and the fly wanders around the shoulder of his suit.
"Today we can say, in no uncertain terms … we've made our union a little more perfect," he says of the Supreme Court ruling that created same-sex "marriage" across America based on the 14th Amendment, which was adopted to make sure blacks were treated equally after the Civil War.
And then the fly flies off.
See the whole speech:
During the Easter events at the White House in April, flying insects interrupted the commander in chief as he was reading to children.
As the president was reciting lines from the famous book "Where the Wild Things Are," bees began buzzing around the kids seated on the South Lawn at the White House.
See video of the president interrupted by bees:
"Oh no, it's a bee!" declared Obama when some children began to scream. "It's OK, guys."
Obama tried to assure the children everything would be fine, saying: "Bees are good. They won't land on ya. They won't sting you. They'll be OK."
As some children continued to shriek, the president yelled to them: "Wait, wait, wait, wait!
"Hold on! Hold on! You guys are wild things! You're not supposed to be scared of bees when you're a wild thing!"
He has had flies land on his face numerous times, with the president sometimes not even swatting them off his face.
He also was swarmed by bees when trying to leave the White House to play basketball, and a rodent scurried toward the presidential podium on one occasion.
The flurry of incidents prompted radio and TV host Glenn Beck to say in 2010: "How many times have rodents crossed your path, flies landed on your face, or bees strangely swarmed in your presence? But our president, at one of the most meticulously maintained houses, it seems to be happening all the time. Why? I don't know, but someone does. ... A swarm of [bees] hovered as he was leaving the White House to play basketball. He went inside and they were gone. How does this happen? Oh, I don't know. But the bees know."
In January 2013, WND reported prophecy websites were having a field day with the worldwide attention Obama received for sparring with a fly.
Religious and other websites used the headlines to point out that a biblical reference for Satan, the Semitic deity Beelzebub, literally translates from Hebrew into "Lord of the Flies."
In a June 2009 CNBC interview, Obama killed a fly on camera.
"Get out of here," the president said with his eyes on the fly before the interview began.
When the fly persisted, he killed it with a single blow.
"That was pretty impressive, wasn't it?" said Obama of his feat. "I got the sucker."
In a 2008 campaign appearance, Obama halted a local interview after a swarm of flies had gathered around him.
