This one's for the 2008 election
WASHINGTON DC – USA – The person who gave ailing president Barack Obama a bloody lip at a recent White House basketball match has finally been identified, U.S. media outlets report.
The president had gone to nearby Fort McNair to indulge in one of his favorite athletic pursuits, a game of basketball, when he received the fateful injury from his long time rival.
It was a five-on-five contest involving family and friends, including Hillary Clinton, Obama’s Secretary of State.
Speaking from the sidelines, the White House’s internal sports trainer, Reggie Handles, told WKSD News: “She had him over a barrel. She was dribbling; cutting and faking like a bat out of hell. During the second quarter Hillary broke the penetration zone with a match-up zone defence, stuck out her lizard tongue then jab stepped him. Obama came in from the short corner, ball side, and tried to overload the zone. That’s when Hillary smacked Barack like a bitch with her bony elbow. He went down like a sack of potatoes.”
President Obama was later seen from a second floor White House window with an ice pack over his mouth.
In the 2008 presidential election, Hillary Clinton was pipped to the post by Barack Obama, thus losing out on becoming the first ever female president of the United States.
