Sure, the guy who struggles mightily with five-pound weights is suddenly a strong man? Please. Enough with the hero worship and propaganda. Kim Jong-Un would be embarrassed by this.
Boston Red Sox manager Torey Lovullo said he was shocked at how strong President Obama was after they shared weights during a chance meeting at a New York Hotel.
Lovullo said Obama seemed well-equipped with a weights belt, a long-sleeved sports tee-shirt and carrying a protein shake during a workout at the Lotte New York Palace Hotel.
The interim Red Sox coach, who is well-accustomed to the routines followed by professional athletes, said he was surprised by Obama’s intense exercise regime, written on a piece of paper.
Mr Lovullo said: ‘He was doing a circuit. He wasn’t in one place at one time. He actually sat down and asked if he could share the weights with me and use the same weights that I was doing.
‘I know how heavy they were for me and he didn’t make them look so heavy. He made it look very easy, so he’s a strong man.’
Obama was staying at the hotel as part of the UN delegation that is meeting there this week. The Red Sox are staying while they prepare for their game against the New York Yankees.
Making this story even more insipid is they call Lovullo the Red Sox manager, which he’s not. Here’s Strongman Obama crushing it in the weight room. Click to savor the dazzling strength.
