CNN's Piers Morgan and Soledad O'Brien 'Obama Bump' Roberta Flack at Whitney Houston Funeral

After CNN's Soledad O'Brien took some heat a few weeks ago for accepting a high five from Roland Martin as congratulations for skewering Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, you'd think she be careful not to demonstrate such overt partisanship while on the air.

Apparently not, for during CNN's broadcast of Whitney Houston's funeral Saturday, O'Brien and Piers Morgan "Obama bumped" singer Roberta Flack (video follows with commentary):


After Houston's funeral, Morgan and O'Brien interviewed Jesse Jackson and Flack.

Before breaking for a commercial, Jackson got up to shake Morgan and O'Brien's hands saying, "We're going to the cemetery."

Flack then held out her fist saying, "Let's have an Obama bump here."

Morgan and O'Brien obliged with the latter saying, "Absolutely."

As if the President and the First Lady originated this practice.
