President Obama had to be stitched up after being ‘inadvertently’ hit by an opposing player’s elbow. The elbow struck the president’s face, splitting his lip. Mr. Obama was playing a friendly game of ‘hoops’ with his friends and family when the injury occurred (read Barack Obama Gets STITCHES After Basketball Injury).
There were 12 stitches in all. The doctor’s office located on the ground floor of the White House repaired the president’s lip.
American’s should not be worried about a large scar marring the president’s lips. According to the report, the medical unit that treated Obama used a smaller filament than usual, meaning more stitches were used, but would result in a smaller scar. Obama was given a local anesthetic while receiving the stitches.
I’m certain the Tea Party partiers are happy to hear of the president’s blow. That one’s for the economy, they might say. That one’s fer bein a communist, I can hear them yelling.
