The White House held its annual Easter Egg Roll in D.C. today, but it was so much more than just an Easter Egg Roll. There were games, celebrities and yes, there was basketball. Midway through the day, President Obama was asked to join in on the court.
Everyone knows Barack loves him some hoops. When the Celtics visited the White House, he heckled Rajon Rondo about his jump shot. But you know what they say about glass houses. Video is below, via Politico:
He finally made one at the end, but no, it was not Obama's finest hour on the blacktop.
On the other hand ... I like to think of this as an homage to the Washington Wizards. Somewhere, Jordan Crawford is watching this video and proudly nodding his head. He's watching missed jumper after missed jumper saying, "That's how you do it Prez! Must be Easter time cuz those are baskets." Later in the day, POTUS went and ate four funnel cakes as a tribute to Andray Blatche.
