President Obama Quit Puffing Ciggys?
Matt | On 09, Dec 2010
Word has it that you won’t catch President Obama throwing cigarette butts out the back of the presidential limousine anymore.
The White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, said in today’s briefing that he hasn’t seen the president smoke in about nine months. It seems, according to Gibbs, that the president has kicked the habit. That doesn’t mean it really happened, though. That’s just the observation of one of his close advisers.
The president’s doctor confirmed in February 2010 that he was still smoking at that time. Hopefully, he put those nasty ciggys down after that. He says he has struggled with smoking for about three decades.
There’s no word on how he quit or exactly what brand he was smoking. The White House does not want you sending cartons of cancer sticks to stuff in Obama’s stocking this year. That’s off limits!
