President Barack Obama walks to his car with Secret Service Agents after a game of basketball with friends and aides on November 26, at Fort McNair in Washington, DC
If someone elbowed the President in the mouth they should be forced to listen to the audio version of Sarah ‘North Korea’s Best Buddy’ Failin’s new book :-|
Newsflash: He needed 12 stitches on that wound :-(
President Obama had his lip treated with 12 stitches after he was hit by the elbow of one of the players joining him in a post-Thanksgiving basketball game. ” After being inadvertently hit with an opposing player’s elbow in the lip while playing basketball with friends and family, the President received 12 stitches today administered by the White House Medical Unit,” White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said in a statement. “They were done in the doctor’s office located on the ground floor of the White House.” The pool adds: “The medical unit that treated Obama used a smaller filament than typically used, which increases the number of stitches but makes a tighter stitch and results in a smaller scar. Obama was given a local anesthetic while receiving the stitches.”
Just wait til America’s North Korean ‘allies’ hear about this, they’ll nuke that elbow

The culprit unveiled!
Politico: The player who elbowed President Obama in the lip during a basketball game on Friday was Rey Decerega, the director of programs for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, the White House said.
“I learned today the president is both a tough competitor and a good sport,” Decerega said in a statement. “I enjoyed playing basketball with him this morning. I’m sure he’ll be back out on the court again soon.”
Obama’s upper lip was treated with 12 stitches after he was hit in the fifth of five games he was playing with family and friends, including Education Secretary Arne Duncan, Reggie Love and Obama’s nephew Avery Robinson.
Decerega “turned into POTUS, who was playing defense, to take a shot when the elbow hit the President in the mouth,” the White House said.
Hey, where were “the guys with guns”?
