Barack Obama on ‘Los Suns’

by May 06, 2010

The Commander-in-Chief gave a tip of the cap to the Suns’ organization for their standing up against the immigration bill in Arizona prior to their Game 2 win last night: “President Barack Obama has given a shout-out to NBA’s Phoenix Suns, who are wearing jerseys that say ‘Los Suns’ to honor the Latino community, diversity and the state of Arizona. Obama made the remarks at the beginning of a Cinco de Mayo celebration in the Rose Garden. The president said: ‘I know that a lot of you would rather be watching tonight’s game — the Spurs against ‘Los Suns’ from Phoenix.’ The line drew applause from the crowd.”
