Skateboarding legend Tony Hawk is taking on the “haters” who think his decision to ride inside at the White House was not so rad.
The professional skateboarder hides boards and tweets their location.
Hawk briefly skated in the Grand Foyer of the White House on Friday during a day-long visit for a Father’s Day celebration hosted by President Obama.
Hawk also took a ride over the checkered tiles of a hallway in the nearby Old Executive Office Building.
He quickly posted photos of his escapade online, touching off a lively debate. By Saturday afternoon, Hawk felt the need to defend himself.
“Wow, haters! My passion, the sport that made me who I am, has allowed me to live the American Dream, disrespects the White House? Not at all,” Hawk wrote on his Twitter page.
I don’t know what’s worse. That Hawk was skateboarding down the White House halls; that our President thought it was okay for him to do so; or that our President was wasting his time with this nonsense when so much important stuff is going on at this very moment.
I do know that it’s sad that a 41 year old man actually uses the word “haters” in a serious way.
It makes you just want to ask in your best Ashton Kutcher imitation, “Dude, what were you thinking?”
Folks, we need some adult leadership in the White House and in a hurry or we are all DOOMED.Vodpod videos no longer available.
