No visor-wearing by President Obama on the matter of D.C.’s instant vapors over the falling of freezing precip: appropriately indignant over his daughters’ losing a day of school for no good reason, he called us out yesterday for our winter wimpiness:
“When it comes to the weather, folks in
Washington don’t seem to be able to handle things,” a joking Obama told
reporters Wednesday morning.
“My children’s school was canceled today because of what? Some ice.”
Obama said his daughters — Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7 — pointed out that school in Chicago is never canceled.
“In fact, my 7-year-old pointed out that you’d go out for recess. You wouldn’t even stay indoors,” Obama says.
“We’re going to have to try some flinty, Chicago toughness to this town.”
