The desk hails back from 1880, a gift from Britain’s Queen Victoria. And even its construction is special: It was built with wood from the sunken Arctic Rescue Ship, the HMS Resolute. But to Mr. Obama, it’s a good place to rest his feet, as The Daily Mail reported.
He’s been snapped in a variety of feet-up poses – to the angst of many.
Mr. Obama’s not the only president to recline in such fashion atop the desk. Former President George W. Bush, in fact, was known to have relaxed and stretched with his feet across the desk, too, The Daily Mail reported.
