President Obama and First Lady Michelle were sitting court side during the Men’s USA basketball game against Brazil at the Verizon Center in Washington. And, of course, the presidential couple were put up on the kiss cam.
President Obama missed his opportunity the first time around and drew boos from the crowd.
But the POTUS with the mostest was able to sneak in a smooch when the kiss cam came around for a second time.
President Obama’s love for basketball is well-known. He fills out a bracket every year for March Madness and recently, he even entered into the “Dream Team Vs. Team USA 2012” debate. Obama said that he had to go with the Dream Team but said that the 2012 Men’s USA Basketball team is full of “unbelievable talent” and hopes that they can bring home the gold.
“This is a generational thing. I was around in ‘92. I was a Bulls fan, so I’ve got to go with original Dream Team…. There’s no reason (2012 Team USA) shouldn’t bring home the gold.”
Obama also said that the 2012 Women’s USA Basketball team should be “more dominant” than the man at the 2012 London Olympics.
Here’s the video of President Obama and Michelle Obama on the kiss cam.
