US President Barack Obama Booed In Boston After Youkilis Joke (Video)

Can Bostonians boo US President Barack Obama if he cracks a joke about their Red Sox?  YES THEY CAN!

For all his other attributes as a politician, Obama knows how to work a crowd. And yet it’s still a little surprising to see him take the bold step of taunting a crowd of Boston residents over the sore subject of the Red Sox trading Kevin Youkilis to Obama’s beloved Chicago White Sox.

As you can see in the video below, Obama gets the jab in after the rest of his speech was done. He is almost immediately booed, but they must have been good-natured boos, because he quickly wins the crowd back as he extracts a few laughs from them.

Good lord, is there anything this man can’t do?  Check it out.
