U.S. Olympic Basketball Team Towers Over President Obama: VIDEO


President Obama paid a visit to the United States' men's Olympic basketball team's locker room before a game against Brazil this week. Mr. Obama may be the leader of the free world, but the ballers make him look like a bit of a shrimp.

Watch the video, which also includes footage of Obama meeting with the women's team, talking ball with the coaches and smooching First Lady Michelle Obama for the kiss-cam, AFTER THE JUMP.

  2. " Mr. Obama may be the leader of the free world, but the ballers make him look like a bit of a shrimp."

    Professional basketball players are taller than a lot of other people?!?? That is some hard-hitting reporting there. I look forward to your next post about how standing in the rain makes you damp, or how you have to remember to breathe both in AND out every time.

  4. Wow, that NBA guy that Obama is shaking hands with has a MAJOR case of gayface. I don't know who he is, but even if he is married and has six kids, if that guy isn't gay, then I'm a distant descendant of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine, and the British throne is my rights mine!

  6. They brought the "Kiss Cam" to the Obamas and Michelle said "no." The Press was sent on their way.

    Obama's team thought about it, then called the press back in. The "Kiss Cam" was done again, which is what you saw on the screen.
