President Obama Gets 12 Stitches After Being Smacked in the Face

What was supposed to be a friendly game of basketball for President Obama and some family members and friends, ended with the commander-in-chief needing 12 stitches to close up a busted lip.

Obama, former college hoops star/current presidential aide Reggie Love, and family members (in Washington, DC for Thanksgiving weekend) took to the court at Fort McNair. But after an elbow connected with the prez’s lip, he was taken back to the White House, where his smacker was sewn up with a dozen stitches.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs stated, “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.”

The press secretary, however, wouldn’t mention who precisely hit the President.

Yeah, that guy’s not being invited back.
