BOSTON (CBS) – Body language can tell you a lot about someone, especially politicians and troubled celebrities.
WBZ’s Jon Keller spoke to body language expert Don Khoury about the body language of politicians and what it can mean.
Khoury analyzed how the top politicians have looked during the debt ceiling crisis.
How has President Obama looked?
“He’s not as smooth as he normally is,” said Khoury, analyzing a particular piece of video from a recent press conference about the debt ceiling debate. “His movements are more rapid and jerky. He’s using his finger more than he would normally use it. He just doesn’t seem to be as comfortable as he normally is.
How about House Speaker John Boehner?
“He wears that (pink/purple) tie often when he wants to deliver a strong message,” said Khoury, analyzing a video of Boehner at a recent press conference. “He wants that pink to soften his message.”
Khoury went on to analyze Casey Anthony along with local figures like Alan Khazei and Jeff Mullan, among others.
