No More Selfies With President Obama?

Pin It

All it takes is one person to ruin the fun for everyone. David Ortiz snapped a selfie with President Obama last week and when it was used as part of a promotion the Red Sox player has with Samsung, the White House was not happy.

"Someone who uses the President's likeness to promote a product... that's a problem," a White House adviser revealed on CBS' Face the Nation. "Maybe this will be the end of all selfies."

This is an outrage. So, you're saying if we ever get to meet the President, we can't snap a selfie with him? ...All because of Big Papi? We want a recount...or check for hanging chads...somebody do something.

Fortunately, it seems like the whole thing might have just been a bad marketing ploy. In fact, according to Huffington Post, the leader of the free world is still allowed to snap all the selfies he wants. For now.

But...if you happen to be decked out in all Nike everything and are pointing to the logo when you go to snap the photo, the Prez might pass on that one.

Big Papi and Obama Selfie Could Mean the End of White House Selfies
