Michael Jordan Misspelled President Barack Obama’s Name On A Poster… So Obama Gave It Back!

no title


Former chief strategist to President Barack Obama, David Axelrod, sat down for an interview, and during the course of it told a very inneresting story.

In Axelrod’s home is lots of memorabilia, including a signed Michael Jordan poster, dedicated to the president.

So, why is it sitting in his home and not Obama’s? He explained:

“When the president turned 50, I wanted to get him something special … so I sent it to Jordan to have him sign it for me. In black Sharpie, Jordan scrawled, ├óΓé¼╦£To Barrack: you still owe me dinner. Wishing you well, Michael Jordan.’

I gave it to the president, and he said, ├óΓé¼╦£I can’t put this up, he misspelled my name!’ So I said, ‘Fine, I’ll take it.'”

It’s the thought that counts, right?!

Well, apparently not always because MJ probably thought he was spelling the Prez’s name right. It was close, but no cigar, and no special spot in the White House.
