Obama Brought Rush Hour Traffic To A Halt And The Reason Why is Absurd

On his way to yet another fundraising event early Monday evening, Barack Obama felt the urge to show off his perceived athletic prowess.

According to reports, he decided to make an unscheduled pit stop at a little league baseball game taking place at Friendship Park in D.C.

“It’s a great day for baseball,” he said.

Thanks to his last-minute diversion, however, it was not such a great day for those trying to navigate rush hour traffic in the nation’s capital.

Obama used the detour as a photo opportunity and a chance to speak directly to some of the young players. Whatever political points he might have gained among attendees, though, were likely offset by the lines of cars immobilized in the resulting gridlock.

Social media lit up with criticisms and complaints arising from the publicity stunt. Even press pool reporter Lesley Clark cited the ensuing chaos that arose as a consequence.

“Trip to the ball fields was uneventful,” she wrote in her report, “but for commuters backed up along DC streets and the Key Bridge.”

America’s pastime was a central theme of Obama’s itinerary Monday. After leaving the little league game, he was reportedly off on a trip to Cooperstown, N.Y., for a stop at the Baseball Hall of Fame.
