President Obama announced earlier in the week that he would be traveling to Alaska to video a promotional appearance with Bear Grylls for his TV show. It might not have been a great idea to announce to the world where you were going to be, since guess who showed up to photobomb them?

While the president was taking the opportunity to shoot selfies with Bear Grills and push his climate change agenda, 5 Chinese warships decided to drop by the area. By parking themselves only 500 miles from the President's location, the Chinese knew it would be looked at as provocative.

The Pentagon says that the vessels include three combat ships, a replenishment ship, and an amphibious ship.

The presence of these ships marks the first known time the Chinese navy has operated off the Alaska coast.
