White House B-Balls Adorned With The One’s Image

by Keith Koffler on April 9, 2012, 1:01 pm

As part of its Easter Egg Roll festivities, the White House is conducting a basketball clinic for kids featuring pro players. Have a look the ball being used, as Tweeted by ABC White House Correspondent Jake Tapper.

Apparently, the basketball lesson doesn’t include instruction in humility.

William April 9, 2012 at 1:17 pm

They don’t need to pump air into those. They’re filled with inflated ego. I’m surprised they don’t burst.

William April 9, 2012 at 1:20 pm

And Drudge has linked. Hold on!

Wigglesworth April 9, 2012 at 1:23 pm

You don’t have to be a conservative to see what a narcissistic move this is. You’re just mad because it makes Obama look like a jerk. It’s like the CEO our company had who put his face on all the company mugs. Really?

Wigglesworth April 9, 2012 at 1:25 pm

Hey, you stole my screen name.

William April 9, 2012 at 1:43 pm

It’s not that this makes me mad. It’s more like I find this incredibly hilarious. The metaphors practically write themselves!

Jesse Jackson April 9, 2012 at 2:47 pm

The TRUE IRONY is that the Institutional Left and the MSM portrays Mitt Romney as narcissist, when in fact, it’s acts of vanity by President Narcissus himself that tells us who is the true egomaniac.

Romney is actually rather humble compared to this egotistical tyrant.

NewcastleWill April 9, 2012 at 3:54 pm

add that to the list that includes the American flag. disgraceful.

DonaldDuck April 9, 2012 at 3:13 pm

Stalin and Hitler put their images on everything too…get ready.

Aaron April 9, 2012 at 4:08 pm

Bingo! Finally someone is paying attention to history. The history that is about to repeat itself. I wish I had a prize to give out, but in this economy….

JByrd42 April 9, 2012 at 4:17 pm

When Liberals run the show. History will always repeat itself.

ABO April 10, 2012 at 9:47 pm

Don’t forget Saddam Hussein! Next thing ya know, the taxpayers will be funding a pair of giant, cheap looking sword sculptures to grace Pennyslvania Ave….

Libtard April 9, 2012 at 4:33 pm

Yeah, these decisions are what comes across the pres desk. Go find the intern and chastise them crybabies.

deans253 April 10, 2012 at 10:53 am

wow, thats a lot of sarcasm coming from a leftist Steeler fan! where do you get all the energy you lost rooting for your shitty go nowhere afc team?

Joie April 10, 2012 at 2:27 pm

Thank you for posting your comment. I was actually thinking what a “narcissist” he is when I saw the basketball.

annatee April 9, 2012 at 2:17 pm

Drudge and Keith Koffler are the healthiest part of my daily news diet.

William April 9, 2012 at 2:28 pm

Oh, definitely.

Star April 9, 2012 at 2:42 pm

You don’t even NEED broccoli if you have Keith!

Lizzy April 9, 2012 at 3:43 pm

And absolutely no PEAS!

Catherine April 10, 2012 at 4:37 pm

Every morning and every night, it’s you Drudge. Can’t take the falsification liberal news media for one second. Please don’t call them main stream, because “they’re far from it”. They are now known as the “falsification news media”, corruption all day long.

Mkurbo April 10, 2012 at 12:39 am

Thanks to drudge for pointing this stupid move out ! Wow, this guy is the biggest loser of all time. Truth in advertising says he at least color the ball red and place a hammer and sickle on it…

Red_Fez April 10, 2012 at 8:21 am

Too bad it’s not like 1992 anymore so the MSM can fawn over Obama without any challenge.

Baldy Kirby from Atlanta April 10, 2012 at 11:18 am

And your point is, William?

vdmboy April 9, 2012 at 2:33 pm

I didn’t know O had balls………………

Cindy Lu April 9, 2012 at 4:03 pm


Billy April 9, 2012 at 4:42 pm

He didn’t until the taxpayers bought him some balls.

Elmer April 9, 2012 at 4:25 pm

Someone thought they said Easter EGGHEAD hunt, hence the basketballs with Obama’s picture.

RANDY April 9, 2012 at 9:00 pm


Sea Gal April 10, 2012 at 10:29 pm

Yep. You know Obama has an over developed ego just by looking at what he named the family dog…BO..(Obama’s initials)

Wigglesworth April 9, 2012 at 1:20 pm

Cult of Personality!

Jenna April 9, 2012 at 3:26 pm

There is something terribly wrong with Obama. He’s a very sick and dangerous person.

feduptoo April 9, 2012 at 9:26 pm

Bingo! I’ve said this during his campaign.

george craft April 9, 2012 at 1:20 pm

That SOB wants to be KING so bad, that he can’t even pretend to hide it.

My greatest concern about this nation is that there are so many imbeciles that have no problem with that SOB becoming a King.

sifi April 10, 2012 at 11:39 am

“My greatest concern about this nation is that there are so many imbeciles that have no problem with that SOB becoming a King.”

That really bothers me too.

Dan April 9, 2012 at 1:21 pm

North Korea already has the Great Leader!! We don’t need one!!

Dan April 9, 2012 at 1:22 pm

This is the cheesiest thing that I may have ever seen .

YES WE CON! YES WE CON! April 9, 2012 at 2:18 pm

Have you seen his Selective Service Registration card?

Hambone Johnson April 10, 2012 at 10:56 pm

YouTube has made that video private. I think YouTube is in the tank for obbamma.

Dan April 9, 2012 at 1:22 pm

man, is this guy in love with himself or what?? Jackass!!

MNResident April 9, 2012 at 1:23 pm

Cosidering that the Harlem Globetrotters gave then President-elect Obama four authentic Red, White, and Blue Globtrotter basketballs with the Presidential Seal back in January, 2009, you can tell these new balls are fro smething other than playing the game:

madkow April 9, 2012 at 9:01 pm

yep – just another insatnce of runnign his campaign out of the Whitehouse because the Left never holds their own accountable. How many of those do you suppose went home with people as “souvenirs”. I wodner if each egg had his picture too. What a blatant abuse but again as always the Left deliberately sees no wrong in it.

Larry Sinclair April 9, 2012 at 1:24 pm

It just goes to show your IQ level they are going for in this election …

annatee April 9, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Hey Larry – Do the balls you dribble with also have his face plastered on them?

annatee April 9, 2012 at 3:22 pm

By the way, Larry…I think the press treated you very unfairly in 2008. Will the real Larry Sinclair please stand up?

Dan April 9, 2012 at 1:24 pm

How is this legal? The egg hunt is a government sponsored affair and basketballs emblazoned with the One’s image are a campaign prop. It’s pathetic that after wasting an education at Harvard Law this president not only doesn’t understand the function of the Supreme Court but also cheats the taxpayers on tacky Chicago (South side) political geegaws.

Fed Up April 9, 2012 at 1:27 pm

I am willing to believe he cheats at a lot of things including basketball. Rest assured no one is ALLOWED to beat him.

ImNoDhimmi April 9, 2012 at 4:40 pm

Yeah, but it took him eight shots to make a basket.

billindallas April 9, 2012 at 9:46 pm

You’d need eight shots too if you were wearing those “mom jeans” he sports.

Detex April 10, 2012 at 9:11 am

Wow, you guys have so little to stand on that you are attacking his jeans? I know this country has a reality TV (ie Kim K, etc) fetish but come on, let’s at least try to SOUND intelligent here…

george April 9, 2012 at 2:03 pm

Just another demonstration that “an education at Harvard Law” is worthless when the student is an unqualified beneficiary of an affirmative action program.

ol gator April 9, 2012 at 2:19 pm

Who says he got an education ? All he really did was hang out with those who shared his same twisted marxist/socialist perversions of how our Country should be..
And its easy to see how he spent countless hours before the mirror
honing his dictator persona.

My Island - Its Mine! April 10, 2012 at 5:09 pm

He never actually made “Professor” (no tenure) at all. He was simpy “a lecturer.” Not the Genius he is worshipped as… just old radical coke-smoking Barry, the sweet young foreign student, educated by the Marxist Ayers Family.

GWShrub April 9, 2012 at 3:20 pm

Did he actually GO there? I’ve read some articles where some students who attended Columbia & had the same classes the O supposedly had don’t ever recall seeing him there.

Exdemnowsane April 9, 2012 at 4:58 pm

As the parent of a public school educated ,Summa cum laude and PHI BETA KAPPA honors college grad. (who by the way worked full time While taking 18+ credit hrs per semester), Ireally would like to see the released college grades (if they even exist)of the POS I mean POTUS. National security aside, (he doesn’t care about that anyway!) He is the Plastic, Teflon and Laugh it all off man ! P.S He shots the basketball more like a girl than my (I coached) daughter does.

Detex April 10, 2012 at 9:12 am

I am sure you remember who was in your classes too! I mean 1:100 people, you better know all of them!

Lizzy April 9, 2012 at 3:48 pm

It was a faux Easter egg deal to cover for free coverage for a big ass
party for the freeloaders. Fundraiser but those dolts who vote for me
will think I’m so great with the biggest Easter egg roll yet (wink wink).
Watch this hand not the one holding an illegal function in the front yard.

AZ Granny April 9, 2012 at 3:56 pm

The souvenir eggs with the picture of Bo the dog are a campaign prop too. It may be illegal to mix and match campaigning with official events but who is going to tell Obama he can’t do this? All I hear from the GOP is crickets…

As for Obama and the Supreme Court, I think he understands their function. He just can’t help but reveal himself, a Chicago bully/thug that thinks he’s above the law and has utter disregard for anyone or anything but himself.

Lizzy April 9, 2012 at 5:16 pm

Perhaps the balls should be donated to the GOP who can let things like
this go by time after time. Why? Do they want him to win or afraid of
the MSM.

Tom April 10, 2012 at 9:32 pm

“after wasting an education at Harvard Law” Dan how do we know he ever atteded school there….he has buried all his records and no one seems to come forth and admit to attending school with him. Seems a little strange to me. The only three words I ever want to hear him say is “guilty,your Honor”. 24 Karet phoney.If he is reelected we are done.

Fed Up April 9, 2012 at 1:25 pm

This is cool. I would love to have one so I can just stand around smashing his dusgusting face into the pavement while praticing my basket ball dribble. :)

Adam April 9, 2012 at 1:37 pm

There’s nothing particularly wrong with his face. It’s the content of his character that disgusts.

Mrs Compton April 9, 2012 at 2:07 pm

Sorry his face brings my blood pressure up to a scary level. The mute button is nearly worn down on our remote as well.

nem April 9, 2012 at 2:41 pm

I play this game kind of like a drinking game. If I am having a meal and Obama comes on TV I get dessert. Only trouble is I’ve gained 200 lbs since he assumed the throne . LOL

andy April 9, 2012 at 1:25 pm

Can we also request BO’s image be placed on toilet paper.

OBOZOSUX April 9, 2012 at 1:35 pm

I actually SAW toilet paper with the Marxist pigs picture on it when I was on vacation last summer. It was being sold in a tourist type store on the boardwalk. I almost bought it, however I thought my behind deserved better.

Robert Smith April 9, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Yeah I saw the same toilet paper. It said “if you want to wipe out hate, this roll will start you one your way” Priceless!

Truthman April 9, 2012 at 4:00 pm
josie wales April 9, 2012 at 1:25 pm

The bottom of my toilet bowl is adorned with a pic of our dear leader .

McNamara April 9, 2012 at 1:26 pm

I would bounce it on the face side until it wore off.

j.v. April 9, 2012 at 2:22 pm

Steel wool probably removes it pretty quickly. Or a brass/stainless brush.

Outback Jon April 9, 2012 at 4:33 pm

Yeah, but that doesn’t give the same satisfaction.

thegemini April 9, 2012 at 1:27 pm

I want to throw up.

Monty April 9, 2012 at 1:30 pm

I wouldn’t mind slamming that into the ground a few times.

OBOZOSUX April 9, 2012 at 1:32 pm

After 3 plus years of Obama idol worship in all facets of the American culture from the Main stream media to the elementary schools and from Hollywood and the music industry, I’m surprised we aren’t seeing giant posters emblazoned with his image in every town square across AmeriKa. If he is reelected I fully expect to see him someday standing in a fake military costume in a review stand observing our troops doing the goose step past him with outstretched arms . This Marxist pig is suffering from delusions of grandeur. He is dangerous and November is our last chance to stop him.

Don April 9, 2012 at 1:32 pm

How raaaaaaaaaaacist to put it on a basketball.

GotFreedom April 9, 2012 at 2:01 pm

. . .and heaven forbid if those were “chicken” eggs they were hunting for on the WH lawn (akin to MJ Blige/Burger King).

William April 9, 2012 at 2:07 pm

That’s a good point.

Jesse Jackson April 9, 2012 at 2:44 pm

No, it would be racism if they had an Oblamer mugshot eblazoned on a watermelon.

Oh the vanity! President Narcissus.

Freedom, by the way April 10, 2012 at 5:46 pm

I never thought of that! You know if a GOP candidate put Obama’s face on a basketball, Sharpton, Jackson and the BPs would be all over it.

Omaeileen April 9, 2012 at 1:33 pm

Wish it had been a soccer ball! Rather it be kicked than bounced

Ron April 9, 2012 at 1:34 pm

How about his face on diapers?Now that would be appropriate !

Justin Sample April 9, 2012 at 2:37 pm

Toilet paper is the most appropriate place for his face. But then again, how would you know when you “got it all”?

Wake up America April 9, 2012 at 1:36 pm

Our tax payers money at work. I’m so happy that he looks out for all of us middle class Americans.

Steve April 10, 2012 at 12:59 pm

Wake up yourself. ABC’s Jake Tapper reported later that the NBA/WNBA players present provided the basketballs. Please do some research next time, you will find that your middle class dollars are going to rich people.

Mr. T. April 9, 2012 at 1:37 pm

Typical dictator stuff. Next thing he’ll want to replace George Washington on the dollar bill…or be pictured on all bills!

Star April 9, 2012 at 1:40 pm

Dribble dribble….

A.J. April 9, 2012 at 2:10 pm

Nah, his picture belongs on Food Stamps!!

Robert Smith April 9, 2012 at 2:22 pm

I’d like to see his face on the dollar bill. Remember, only dead presidents are on our money. Just saying.

obamaistheworst April 9, 2012 at 1:38 pm

Did the taxpayers pay for that ?

Can one of you “journalist” please investigate ?

Shofar April 9, 2012 at 4:58 pm

The balls were provided by the NBA/WNBA players that attended the event. Tapper updated his Twitter feed with the info regarding the ball source.

DeniseVB April 9, 2012 at 1:38 pm

Whoa ! It is a campaign rally. Will there be an FOIA into the cost ?

The National Parks Service has seen huge cuts to their budget and staff, and if you’ve been to the National Mall lately, it shows. How do you explain the over-the-top Obama circus taking much needed cash and man hours away from more important projects? Don’t forget the NPS tends the First Lady’s vegetable garden too.

Matt Phinish April 9, 2012 at 1:39 pm

I wonder how much those cost us.

Detex April 10, 2012 at 9:15 am

nothing, if you read you will see the NBA paid for it…

Mike B. April 9, 2012 at 1:41 pm

Reminds me of Saddam Hussein who ordered every newspaper to publish a picture of him on the front page every day, and plastered the cities with posters and murals of his triumphs.
Every dictator develops a cult of personality to keep himself continually in the public eye.

bb April 9, 2012 at 1:41 pm

obama is awesome
he says so
he has a peace prize – and goes to war –
he’s so cool – he smokes – in private

this man is the new MAO and if you don’t want ‘dear leader’ to own you
your going to put every damn politician in their place – once and for all
vote everyone out – no one is untouchable…

Ernie Kaputnik April 9, 2012 at 1:42 pm

Good Lord! What the hell is wrong with these people? The jackass-in-chief and his minions are doing all the same things as Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot and Marcus Areillius. Whether it is basketballs or flags, they put his queer, cocaine sniffing ass on everything. And, yet there are still more than enough idiots that will vote for him in November. This is absolute insanity.

The cult of personality and insanity is alive and well. I just never imagined that it would be flourishing so well here in the USA.

Lord, have mercy. We have truly passed through the looking-glass.


Kevin Stowell April 9, 2012 at 1:45 pm

Nothing to see here–it’s just what would-be tyrants do to contribute to the demoralization of those over whom they wish to rule/own.

Davis April 9, 2012 at 1:45 pm

Stalin, Mao, Hussein et al. used similar marketing strategies.

Harleybob April 9, 2012 at 1:45 pm

One would think balls full of BS wouldn’t bounded.

marco April 9, 2012 at 1:45 pm

it would now make a better soccer ball

Girly1 April 9, 2012 at 1:46 pm

They will all end up on EBay with no bids….

Justin Sample April 9, 2012 at 2:42 pm

Right there with “Billy Beer”.

The Truth April 9, 2012 at 1:49 pm

I’d like to have one so I can smash his face into the ground over, and over, and over, and over……..

Kent April 9, 2012 at 1:49 pm

Can you spike a basketball? Really hard? April 9, 2012 at 1:50 pm

Want yours?

JR April 9, 2012 at 1:51 pm

I wonder if you will get arrested if you slam the ball into onto the pavement like that thug trivon did to Zimmerman?

Sydney April 9, 2012 at 1:52 pm

I’d take one of those, I’d love to bounce it and see Obama’s face getting the smack down!

Chukkal April 9, 2012 at 1:54 pm

This guy is so cheesy! A boy-child president!!! It’s sickening!

RHO April 9, 2012 at 1:54 pm

I would like to kick that image with my size 12.

GotFreedom April 9, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Gotta get one of those–then gonna give it a good swift kick!

Also, don’t forget last week when MO was lecturing kids/their families out in SF that they can change the minds of their parents/grandparents who are “wrong” if they don’t vote for BHO.

Propaganda pure and simple!

george April 9, 2012 at 1:58 pm

Turning the kids against their parents and grandparents . . . a trick right out of the Nazi playbook.

Chukkal April 9, 2012 at 1:55 pm

How much did that cost us?

Tocelp April 9, 2012 at 2:02 pm

Probably bought through the GSA.

A.J. April 9, 2012 at 2:18 pm

Check the label. “Made In China” perhaps?

Steve April 10, 2012 at 12:49 pm

It cost you nothing. ABC’s Jake Tapper reported later that the basketballs were supplied by NBA/WNBA players. You can’t get the truth by relying on right-wing sites, so please do some research next time.

Keith April 9, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Narcissists must have their image everywhere along with thinking that all humanity hangs on their every word. That is Barry Soetoro aka Barak Obama. Hope to God he is voted back to Kenya come November.

george April 9, 2012 at 1:57 pm

Narcissism knows nothing about humility.

dont care April 9, 2012 at 1:58 pm

what BS and we are so stupid we do not see the arrogance in all this.
First the Flag with his picture, not BALLS, he sure has a pair.

Tocelp April 9, 2012 at 2:01 pm

Easter—The Day of Jesus
White House:
Easter—The Day of Obama
Get the picture!

Unbelievable April 9, 2012 at 2:01 pm

Did we, the taxpayer pay for these or did his campaign?

Steve April 10, 2012 at 12:47 pm

No. ABC’s Jake Tapper reported later that the basketballs were supplied by NBA/WNBA players. You can’t get the truth by relying on right-wing sites, so please do some research next time.

splink April 10, 2012 at 1:39 pm

Relax Steve. We are all aware of financial tentacles. Do you think Obama had to give his permission? My guess would be yes.

Steve April 11, 2012 at 11:45 am

Sure, but “Unbelievable” asked if the taxpayers paid for it. The answer to that is no, but this website does not run a correction. This non-correction leds to people getting all bent out of shape about how their tax dollars being spent on basketballs instead of their preferred item, war in Iraq.

whoduhwhat April 11, 2012 at 1:07 am

About our Flag: The flag should never be used for advertising purposes. It should not be embroidered, printed or otherwise impressed on such articles as cushions, handkerchiefs, paper napkins, boxes, or anything that is designed for temporary use. Advertising signs should not be fastened to a flag’s staff or halyard.

flag distressThe flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. Bunting of blue, white, and red can be used for covering a speaker’s desk, draping the front of a platform, or for decoration in general.

No part of the flag should be used as an element of a costume or athletic uniform.

But since the potus does not know our laws, customs and does not pledge allegiance to our Flag, I see how he would allow our Nations symbol to be misrepresented.

Girly1 April 9, 2012 at 2:02 pm

i wonder what Obama’s cut is from all of this crapola… must be copyrighted.

Jon April 9, 2012 at 2:02 pm

The basketball has two flaws; full of hot air and always bounces to the left.

annatee April 9, 2012 at 2:04 pm

Great post, Jon!!!

UyeahU April 10, 2012 at 5:56 pm

….and blames the other player when it misses the basket.

annatee April 9, 2012 at 2:04 pm

What else would a narcissist’s basketball look like? I love me, I am great, I can do no wrong, I am the best-looking, I am the most brilliant, I am the best husband, I am the best father, I am the best political leader – ever, I will stop the oceans from rising, I am ABOVE the law, it’s all about me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me………..

Uncle Bob April 9, 2012 at 2:04 pm

I swear, if Obama thought he could get away with wearing a cheezy general’s uniform and a bunch of phony medals, he would.

A.J. April 9, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Keep watching Uncle Bob. Might be coming next!!

Lizzy April 9, 2012 at 3:53 pm

I watched Air Force One with Harrison Ford then I pictured if it was
the Obama groupies funny with very different outcome:)

Lynne April 9, 2012 at 8:45 pm

I would love one of those soccer balls, and the chance to kick that face.

bumpkin April 10, 2012 at 3:39 am

What does it cost to have one’s face splatted all over a basketball? Narcissus is my fave flower. It thinks it is just SO cute! This basketball blooper is embarrassing. I can hear it now. Europe all talking- “…did you hear he has his face on sports balls? I hear he’s planning a statue of himself for every state’s capitol and will sign into law soon that every classroom have a bust of his head and neck on every teacher’s desk- -oh, and if they are caught without one, he will send in gangs from Mexico or Chicago to take care of it- after all they are his base, now. -OH! And if they are found with one in their house, they are automatically exempt from Obamacare!!” Humble he is not. Hmmm… oddly enough, I cannot find anything warm to say about the man. -guess I will have to ask his family someday- maybe cousins, or hidden sibs- I am certain they will know him enough to say something warm about him. Hope I get to meet them soon, before my opinion of him becomes permanent. To me, its sad when there isn’t something nice to say about someone.
