Karen Heller, The Washington Post Published 5:21 am PDT, Sunday, March 17, 2019 Beto O'Rourke's launch of his presidential campaign on Thursday became more a call to arms - his constantly gesticulating ones - than the message he wanted to convey. Perched on a chair in an Iowa coffeehouse - and later, from atop the counter of another one - O'Rourke presented an athletic drill of upper body movements that might exhaust a pep squad: pointing, fist shaking, arms crossing and Bob Fosse-like jazz hands. President Donald Trump, no slouch in the art of exuberant hand gestures, mocked the former congressman and El Paso city councilman. "I've never seen so much hand movement," he told reporters at the White House. "I said, 'Is he crazy or is that just the way he acts?' I've actually never seen anything quite like it." Late-night hosts feasted on O'Rourke's physically expressive entrance into the crowded Democratic race, offering a buffet of slights of the Texan's hands. They also … [Read more...] about Does distinctive body language help or hurt a candidate?

SHAMIMA Begum is egocentric and arrogant and shows no signs of “regret, remorse or true sorrow,” according to a body language expert. Darren Stanton claimed her recent appearance during an interview with a Sky News journalist was “unconvincing” adding that she lacked “sincerity and truthfulness”. The 19-year-old was interviewed by the news channel as she tries to be allowed back into Britain after leaving her home in Bethnal Green, East London, in 2015 with two pals to go to Syria. Shamima Begum is currently in a refugee camp and gave birth to a son at the weekend. She states she “never did anything dangerous” and moaned: “I can’t live in this camp forever.” Asked if she felt she made a mistake travelling to Syria, she said: "In a way, yes, but I don't regret it because it's changed me as a person. It's made me stronger, tougher, you know. "I married my husband, I wouldn't have found someone like him back in the UK. "I … [Read more...] about ‘Arrogant’ ISIS bride Shamima Begum has a massive ego and shows no remorse for fleeing Britain to join terror group, body language expert says
THE "Putney Pusher" could finally be exposed by his body language, a leading expert claimed today - as cops probe new leads. Sun Online can reveal how the bullish jogger's clenched fists and 'upright' running style show he had "pent-up anger" when he shoved a female pedestrian in front of a moving bus on Putney Bridge, west London 19 months ago. He almost killed the woman in the sickening attack in May 2017 - but we can reveal today how he is likely to be an ordinary businessman who was "overcome by red mist".

DONALD Trump was like a lion startling a herd of animals when he arrived at George H.W. Bush's funeral, a body language expert has claimed. George Snr's national farewell is taking place today at Washington National Cathedral before family, friends, presidents and foreign dignitaries. Expert Judi James told The Sun Online: "You could spot the moment Trump arrived in the National Cathedral even before he honed into view of the cameras. "Until then the gathering of previous presidents had involved some relatively relaxed displays of sociable body language but suddenly - like a herd of animals sensing a lion - their poses and non-verbal signals morphed into something far more wary and stony-faced." The 41st US president died Friday in Houston at age 94. His wife of 73 years, Barbara, passed away in April. Judi added: "Bill Clinton had been leaning into Michelle Obama, ever resting his hand on her arm as he chatted and Hillary had leaned across her husband to chat with Barack. … [Read more...] about Body language expert says Trump’s arrival at George HW Bush’s funeral ‘was like a lion startling a herd of animals’
THIS is the chilling moment paedo TV weatherman Fred Talbot exposed himself as a liar in police interviews - simply by saying "no comment". The ex-This Morning star refused to answer 18 questions when quizzed by police over sex attacks on seven schoolboys in the 1970s and 1980s. But experts on Faking It: Tears of a Crime have revealed how his "anxious" body language during the interviews gives him away. Body language analyst Cliff Lansley said: "He is clamping across his stomach with fist wrapped underneath his elbow and his other arm grabbing the other elbow.
