Hanging out during the Easter Egg Roll festivities, President Obama decided to try taking some shots on the White House basketball court. Big mistake.
From the press pool report:
POTUS at basketball court, with kids and Washington Wizards (don’t have all names but John Wall included — will get details for final wrap)
“Oh, man,” a stunned POTUS said, hands on hips. The boy didn’t budge. And three others joined.
In sharp form, POTUS released the ball. It bounced off the rim and circled it — miss.
Miss. Miss. Off the rim. Miss. Miss. Off the rim. Airball.He moved closer to the net.
But time and again, he missed. Of 22 shots POTUS took, he made two. (22 was general consensus of poolers)
That’s right, like Obama’s promises he misses more than he makes!
Surrounded by kids and members of the Washington Wizards, President Obama ultimately attempted 22 free throws, sinking in two.
