Obama’s Bowling Gaffe on Leno: “It’s Like the Special Olympics”

President Obama compares his bowling to the bowling performance of a Special Olympian. Well, the Special Olympics won’t have any issue getting government funding for the next few years.

Damnit Mr. President, stupid comment. Glad this didn’t happen during the election. White House apology from Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton….

“The President made an offhand remark making fun of his own bowling that was in no way intended to disparage the Special Olympics. He thinks that the Special Olympics are a wonderful program that gives an opportunity to shine to people with disabilities from around the world.”

  1. It sounded to me like he was saying that Leno and the audiences response was like the special olympics. While still not entirely smart, I think it’s a lot more accurate. Their false congratulations we kind of insulting, and I think that happens a lot with the special olympics too. Or maybe he’s been taking public speaking lessons from Biden.
