Takes a lot to get booed at a fundraiser. Iâd love to know why his speechwriters thought mocking Red Sox fans for losing one of their beloved players would be a wise move.
BOSTON (CBS) â Being booed was probably the last thing President Barack Obama expected from the crowd at a Symphony Hall fundraiser Monday night, but that happened when the president âthankedâ Boston for Kevin Youkilis, who was just traded to the Chicago White Sox.
âIâm just saying, heâs going to have to change the color of his socks,â the president said laughing.
Youkilis was traded from the Red Sox, to Obamaâs favorite team on Sunday for infielder Brent Lillibridge and pitcher Zach Stewart.
âI didnât think I was going to get any boos out of here,â he said. âI should not have brought up baseball, I understand, my mistake, you got to know your crowd.â
