So it would seem the White House is considering the prohibition on “selfie” photos with President Obama. Before anyone gets their dander up at the evil White House occupied by the Black Man, let us be clear:
Speaking on CBS’ Face The Nation, Dan Pfeiffer said that the president didn’t know the photo he took with Red Sox star David Ortiz was part of a Samsung promotion.
“Someone who uses the President’s likeness to promote a product… that’s a problem,” he said. “Maybe this will be the end of all selfies.”
The selfie controversy began after Obama took a fun photo with Big Papi. The image quickly went viral, receiving over 45,000 retweets and more than 48,000 favorites on Twitter. Samsung later announced that it was all an orchestrated PR stunt.
So, yeah. Everybody say, “Thank you, Samsung!”
Capitalism: This is why we can’t have nice things.
Oh, right. Also make sure to thank the Boston Red Sox for their part in this. David Ortiz can go screw himself. Then again, he’s rich enough to hire someone else to screw.
