Today’s chart was inspired by Representative Curt Clawson (R-FL). Rep Clawson, upon meeting (and being introduced to, with title) Nisha Biswal and Arun Kumar.
The plot: Rep. Clawson spoke to these two fine brown people as if they were foreign Indian diplomats here for a visit. He goes into a soliloquy about how much he loves India and would appreciate further cooperation with their government.
The twist: Biswal and Kumar are actually Americans, representing the departments of State and Commerce, confused and amused at the goings on. Here’s the video from foreignpolicy.com, and they have more of the story here.
Oh right, then see comedian John Oliver’s take from Last Week Tonight on it here. His words basically reflected my entire thought process while watching the video above.
