Figures. Obama Flew His Dog Bo Home For Shopping Photo Op (Video)
Ah, how sweet. Just a man and his dog.
Barack Obama took his dog Bo with him to the store yesterday for a photo op.
MSNBC super-star host Al Sharpton was impressed.
It looks like Bo’s flight home from Hawaii paid off with the Obama-adoring press.
White House Dossier reported:
Bo Obama was supposed to be in Hawaii. Instead, he showed up at President Obama’s side Wednesday shopping for treats at PetSmart
According to Michelle Obama’s press office, the first dog was planning to go to Hawaii with the first lady and the Obama daughters. The Chicago Sun-Times reported that he in fact had gone there. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser quoted an eyewitness who said he had seen the Portuguese Water Dog having his walk.
So what is Bo doing back in Washington shopping at PetSmart?
Either these reports are mistaken, or Bo was told his vacation was over and that he had to return to the White House to keep a lonely president company – and participate in a silly photo op presenting Obama as an average guy who likes to head out to the PetSmart.
What a complete shock. It was all staged.
And, of course, the press will never say a word about it.
UPDATE: The White House said Bo did not fly back to DC for the photo op.
