US stock markets dropped like a stone today following reports that the President had cancelled all overseas visits until further notice. News agencies were buzzing with speculation that Obama had taken seriously ill, and Joe Biden' was being briefed on nuclear procedures and protocols.
However markets recovered when Obama's Chief of Staff clarified matters. He confirmed the foreign travel ban was in place. However he explained it was the First Lady who had imposed the ban in response to the President's "threesome" with the Danish and UK Prime Ministers. He said the President was embarrassed by the incident, and deeply regretted his involvement with David Cameron.
