Condi Endures Particularly Impoverished Matching Armchairs Photo-Op

How much, I wonder, can be missing before you call the whole thing off? My guess is that a minimum of three elements must be available before the shot is cancelled, and here, indeed, we have the matching armchairs, the small, low table in-between, and the patterned carpet. But... well, a hotel lamp is a poor substitute for a fireplace and... what's that they've got in place of the floral arrangement? Is it a salad condiment tray? What the heck is going on here? I'm assuming that off camera on either side are some awful flag-substitutes, like maybe souvenir "flags of the world" sugar packets thrown on the floor or something.

Oh, Condi, you just can't catch a break from people from that part of the world, can you?

I think the Condibot may have some of The Terminator's time travel capabilities...on GettyImages the 1st picture states the date it was taken as the 18th September 2037!

And the Condibot is still functioning within acceptable parameters!

I'm hoping that those are very small 100 proof bottles of vodka on the little table.

How much do they charge for them rooms??

They are lunch box-sized bottles of Mogen David White Concord.
The legal pad is for their lunch orders. Tzipi ordered the pastrami on rye, Condi wanted the baloney on white.

Are they sharing a room?
You know, to save on expenses.
And agree on the BS they will feed to the U.N.
