Hawaii: half-naked man interrupted a photo op of Hillary Clinton and Donald Tsang
A half-naked man interrupted a photo op of Hillary Clinton in Hawaii this weekend when when he ran behind her carrying a flaming torch and wearing nothing but a loincloth.
Hillary Clinton clapped her hands and howled with laughter when she turned around to see the man speed by her.
“That was great! I hope you all captured that,” the Secretary of State told photographers.
Hillary Clinton was posing for photographs Saturday with Hong Kong’s Chief Executive, Donald Tsang, when the streaker ran into the frame.
“People will wonder what the chief executive is doing,” Hillary Clinton laugh, patting Donald Tsang on the shoulder.
Hillary Clinton was chatting with Donald Tsang when the press gaggle taking her picture spotted the running and began to chuckle.
US Secretary of State turned around, just to see the man’s backside. The man was shirtless and wearing nothing except what appears to be a loincloth or traditional Hawaiian skirt.
He was also carrying a burning torch. It was unclear why the man was dressed that way or what he was doing.
Hillary Clinton was in Hawaii for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit.
Hillary Clinton vowed to expand U.S. engagement in the Asia-Pacific by building trade ties, reinforcing alliances and continuing to press for democratic reforms in authoritarian nations like China and Vietnam.
In a nearly hour-long outdoor speech, Hillary Clinton addressed a few hundred invited guests including Hawaii’s political leaders, heads of a dozen Pacific island nations and senior U.S. military officials.
Hillary Clinton spoke at length about China and the need for the two nations to work together to ensure “strong, sustained and balanced future global growth.”
But China first needs to take steps to reform, Hillary Clinton said, such as ending unfair discrimination against U.S. and other foreign companies, allowing its currency to appreciate more rapidly and ending measures that disadvantage or pirate foreign intellectual property.
