A motorist driving along I-66 in Washington gave President Obama’s motorcade the finger Saturday. It’s unclear if the president gave the driver the finger right back.
Rumors that the driver was Solange Knowles could not be confirmed.
From the White House pool report:
Poolster observed one motorist on I-66 from DC extend his middle finger at the motorcade, but unable to tell if said motorist knew who was in the motorcade, or just didn’t like being passed.
Well, I assure you, anyone if the Washington area with a car knows who is generally in a big motorcade. Unless it was a foreign visitor unfamiliar with American hand language trying to tell Obama, You’re number one!
Obama was on his way to play golf, this time, atypically for his Washington outings, at a private club.
Presidential motorcade arrived 10:40 am at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Va, an exclusive course that’s hosted four President’s Cups.
Pool got no eyes on POTUS. Informed by WH staff that his golfing partners today include former Dallas Mayor and U.S. Trade Rep. Ron Kirk.
Also golfing with POTUS is Milton Carroll, chairman of CenterPoint Energy, a public utility company based in Houston, Texas.
Third partner identified as Joe O’Neill.
Kirk, as you may know, if famous for being the USTR who failed to start and complete a single trade deal during his four years on the job.
It was Obama’s 15th time playing this year and the 172nd outing as president.
Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly said Obama had played golf 13 times this year and 170 as president.
