Obama needs 12 stitches after being hit on lip during basketball game
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama received 12 stitches in his lip after being hit during a pick up basketball game, the White House said on Friday.
"After being inadvertently hit with an opposing player's elbow in the lip while playing basketball with friends and family, the president received 12 stitches today administered by the White House Medical Unit," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said, according to NBC News.
Gibbs did not release the names of the people playing with the president.
Obama received the stitches under local anesthesia in the doctor's office on the ground floor White House after he returned home.
When I heard this news the first thing I thought of was "Former VP Dick Cheney's Hunting Accident".
Is there any chance that the jokes made at Obama's expense in the next few weeks WON'T be called "racist"?
Hey wait a minute. I wonder if THIS picture was registered as a tacit threat against the President Of The United States? Or did this type of thing start being counted as such after January 2009?
