The UNTIED STATES is falling apart and all this guy does is play basketball and golf and fly all over the country for birthday celebration and weekend getaways with our tax dollars.


The game was held at Ft McNair, very close the White House gym. No flying around was necessary. The closed event was for injured troops. This president has done more to support troops than the last three presidents put together.

Thanks for sharing this great Obama plays basketball with LeBron James, Magic Johnson, Bill Russell and other stars! Keep playing basketball and have fun!:)
