Bag’s Take-Away:

I believe the photo shows the Obamas, right after the State of the Union, calling the parents of an American hostage rescued from Somalia. He may not have been able to mention the rescue in front of Congress during the SOTU (oh, damn), but look where he’s making his call: right in front of the Congress (on the wall)!  Hilarious bit of manipulation.
