Did Obama bow to the Saudi King (or was he simply cleaning the floor?)

White House denies Obama bowed to Saudi King
According to the Politico, an unnamed Obama aide is claiming that President Barack Obama did not actually bow to the Saudi King. But looking at the video, it seems to be a case if “Do you believe the White House or your lying eyes?”
“It wasn’t a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he’s taller than King Abdullah,” the aide is quoted as saying, suggesting that President Obama was just bending over to maintain eye contact with the King and not, in fact,
But the video that accompanies the news stories clearly shows President Obama bowing before King Abdullah. Therefore, the White House appears to have forgotten the old political maxim, “When you are in a hole, stop digging.”
