Barack Obama: The human flyswatter
46 minutes ago
WASHINGTON (AP) — Evidently, there's a new SWAT team at the White House — and it's Barack Obama.
The president, irritated by an omnipresent fly during a TV interview at the Executive Mansion Tuesday, took matters into his own hands.
Said Obama to the persistent fly: "Get out of here."
But it didn't.
So Obama waited for the fly to settle, put his hand up and then smacked the fly dead in one try.
Without missing a beat, the president said to CNBC correspondent John Harwood: "Now, where were we?"
Well, maybe one more second to gloat.
Said Obama: "That was pretty impressive, wasn't it? I got the sucker."
The camera crew was still rolling in the East Room. Obama didn't mind. He pointed to the vanquished insect on the ground and said, "You want to film that?"
CNBC did. That fly is history.
See...President Obama has proven that he is capable of protecting each and every one of us from the great evil known as:
The Common Housefly!
Updated: We have video! I was worried that we would not have this wonderful Obama moment on film, so we can save for all time!
