Barack Obama vs The FlyCategory: Humor
Well, it was not exactly Jeff Goldblum’s The Fly character that US President Barack Obama has encountered. He will probably need more than a fly swatter to squish it.
It was a smaller and more harmless but who says Obama wouldn’t hurt such defenseless creature?
For bothering him while explaining his financial regulatory proposals in a TV interview with CNBC’s John Harwood, the poor fly was swatted by Obama in one ninja-like motion. Obama said afterwards, “That was pretty impressive, wasn’t it? I got the sucker”.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) wishes Obama hadn’t swatted that fly. According to them, “He isn’t the Buddha, he’s a human being, and human beings have a long way to go before they think before they act”.
