Obama stitches were what everyone was talking about, instead of the delivery of the official White House Christmas tree to Michelle Obama.
The press caught a glimpse of the commander in chief from a White House window while waiting for Michelle Obama to be given the official Christmas Tree.
The whole thing was an "accidental" elbow jab to the lip. One can't help but wonder how the president is going to hide his injury - of course, he can't. The injury took place during a friendly B-Ball game at a Washington military facility.
Rey Decerega has been outed as the person who was responsible for the injuries. He's a member of the Hispanic Caucus.
The president is an avid lover of basketball, and has even attended professional and college games while in office. Medical staff at the White House sewed up his injuries in a way that would make the scars less visible, according to ABC News.
Of course, there are injuries in any sport. It's not all that uncommon for someone to bust a lip playing basketball. It could have been worse. He could have gotten a black eye, broke his nose, or pulled a muscle in his knee.
However, I imagine he's going to get a lot of chuckles walking around with 12 Obama stitches in his lip!
