President Obama Honors David Beckham & L.A. Galaxy

President Obama proudly shows off his L.A. Galaxy jersey in the East Room of the White House on Tuesday (May 15) in Washington, DC.

The commander in chief congratulated the team, including midfielders Landon Donovan and David Beckham, on their MLS championship title.

“We also have a young up-and-comer on the team, a guy named David Beckham,” Barack joked. “I have to say I gave David a hard time – I said half his teammates could be his kids. We’re getting old, David. Although you’re holding up better than me.”

The Galaxy players also participated in a Let’s Move! Q&A session with young sports fans and First Lady Michelle Obama.

Over the weekend, David’s boys – Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz – hit the beach with their nanny in Malibu, Calif. Mom Victoria Beckham stayed home with baby Harper for Mother’s Day.

oh please all he wants is popularity. try hard flip flopper.

Him and his fake smile. I know from people who have been to some of his events that he turns the smile off as soon as his back is turned from the camera. But, he did say in his book that that’s how you get white folks to like you if you’re a black man – smile a lot and don’t raise your voice.

# 3

Doesn’t he have more important things to do?

# 4

more h wood parties and vacations? smdh.

Whatever the reason is.. I think it’s awesome to see a picture of Obama and Beckham. :p

I just want to thank Jared for not posting about Pippa Middleton or Justin Bieber in a long time. Very appreciated.

Four More Years! President Obama is the greatest American President. I am so proud of him.

I am retarded from watching Fux Nooz.

I love our President! Hot.

While GOP was obsessing about vaginas and voting rights, President Obama was killing terrorists and creating jobs.

@BetsyR: “killing terrorists”??? i that what you think they’re doing overseas? id say theyre killing more innocent people than anything

@ab: wow you’re so witty. i actually get my news from regular old australian tv. you know the one that doesnt bullsh*t as much as yours!

Gossipgirl @ 05/15/2012 at 11:44 pm

@BetsyR: I think you have that backwards: liberals are obsesses about women@sellllloutttt: Greatest ever? How old are you, 10?
