Talking about the local sports team is the go-to move in the politician pandering playbook. Seldom, however, does said politician sports talk get as trollish as it did when President Obama visited Missouri on Friday.
“When I said I was flying into Kansas City to see an incredible success story in action, I did not think I was going to be talking about the Chiefs,” President Obama joked.
The crowd returned with a loud “CHIEEEEEEEEEFS.”
“Before you get carried away,” the President continued,” I just want to point out that the Bears are 2-0.”
The crowd then booed.
“I’m just saying,” the President said. “And we’re able to pass for more than 10 yards,” the President then joked again.
More boos were heard across the crowd.
“Just a little trash talking, we’ll see how we’re looking at the end of the season.”
That’s a decent dig at Alex Smith right there, which would that much more hurtful if the president weren’t throwing his support behind Jay Cutler. I think Cutler needs to be the federal government’s secretary of DDDDOOOONNNN’TTTT CCCCAAAAARRRREEEEE when the NFL season is out.
