Editor’s note: The full background photo does not appear on some browser settings. The photo shows President Obama sitting at his desk with a view of the oval office ceiling, in which the presidential seal would appear upside down from the photographer’s perspective.

The eagle in the white house logo on whitehouse twitter page is upside down on it’s background. Scroll down to see it. What is up with that?
