President Obama turned a group photo op at the United Nations Tuesday into a photo flop when he tossed a wave of the hand, blocking Mongolian President Tsakhia Elbegdorj's face as the camera flashed.

It’s not clear who Obama was waving to or whether he was trying to send a message to the Mongolian leader -- as in talk to the hand because the face doesn't want to hear it. Luckily, the photo op allowed more pictures to be snapped without the exuberant gesture. 

On Wednesday, Obama gave a speech before the U.N. General Assembly in which discussed Middle East peace, the world economy and even plugged his new $450 billion jobs plan that he has been urgently pressing Congress to pass since he unveiled it earlier this month.
