Obama: ‘I would not let my son play pro football’

Good to know, via The Hill:

The president made the comments while speaking aboard Air Force One with David Remnick, the magazine’s editor and a former sportswriter for The Washington Post.

Obama said that while the risks were understood, if he had a son, he would not allow him to play professional football.

“I would not let my son play pro football,” he said. “But, I mean, you wrote a lot about boxing, right? We’re sort of in the same realm.”

I’m sure all marginal pro football players are breathing a sigh of relief.  After all, if Obama’s imaginary son played football as well as Obama throws a baseball, there’d be one NFL player who’d surely lose his spot on the roster, no?

Exit question: What about Michelle?

    If he had a son playing football as well as Barack is playing basketball I wouldn’t worry too much.

    If ‘DEBT man walking’ Obama had a son, then his
    son would be DEAD like THUG Trayvon Martin.

    If i had a son, I wouldn’t let him try to bankrupt the mother of a Down’s syndrome child. So we’re, uh, "sort of in the same realm."

    If I had an imaginary son I wouldn’t let him represent Obama as Ambassador to Libya.

    But he would have no problem letting his daughters have an abortion.

    But he would let him be a thieving communist.

    If Obama had a son he’d be a sissy like his father and couldn’t play pro football in a million years, especially with his $17 trillion dollar deficit because soon there will be no football, no sports, no economy, no USA. Obama is smirking, cowardly hyena who uses his "pen" to destroy our freedom with his illegal and outrageous executive orders.
