Video: Obama Goes 2 For 22 Shooting Hoops at WH Easter Egg Roll

The theme for this years Easter Egg roll was, “Be Healthy, Be Active, Be You!”

“The Easter Egg Roll is the biggest event that we have here on the South lawn of the White House”, Michelle Obama said. “Today, we’re going to have over 30,000 people who will pass through this yard in celebration of nutrition and health and activity…”

Yep, that’s what Easter’s all about, alright.

Obama’s thing is basketball, so he and some professional basketball players gathered on the basketball court for a game of hoops with several children.

It took Obama 15 tries to sink a basket.

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)

POTUS stepped to free throw line and kids were asked to stand on opposite sides, depending on whether they think he would sink it. Most kids moved in one direction, but one boy went to the “miss” side.

“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.

“Come on. Come on. Did you see that?” Obama said.

It got worse…..

Kinda sad. I thought basketball was supposed to be his game.

Jay Carney reportedly told reporters, afterward, “the president doesn’t get to practice probably as much as he’d like to.”

  1. Didn’t get to practice as much as he’d like to, all right – too busy taking vacations on my dime while the working stiffs of this country (of whom he knows absolutely nothing) have had to work.
