Shaq Thought (Wrongly) He Could Waltz into White House

The Secret Service doesn’t bend its rules, not even for O’Neal: ”I went to the gate,’ he said. ‘They were nice. They said, ‘Shaq, we can’t do it.’ I said, ‘I understand. Understood.’ And he didn’t try to argue his way in? ‘Never that,’ he said. ‘Never that. No way.’ (This was, of course, a slightly different tone than on his Twitter feed, where he responded to rejection with this: ‘The white house wouldn’t let me in, whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.”‘)

    Since Obama is busy with sharing beers with local police forces, maybe Shaq can take a crack at actually fixing our economy?

  • kobesbestfriend

    dont worry…shaq can be secret service instead of a policeman after he retires and see obama all he wants…meanwhile kobe will win 5 str8 rings and see the bill russell trophy all he wants!!!

    Don’t they give tours of the White House anymore for the public? Didn’t even offer to give him a tour and then once inside, WH staffers would have let him hang out I would imagine. Cmon now Shaq, think buddy.

    Shaq probably huffed and puffed and tried to blow the gate(s) down. Then he spotted the sniper on the roof lining up on him, and decided to call it a day. Good times.

    Anton +1. Snipers for Shaq, Darksaber? More like dudes in safari suits with elephant guns.
