The Cleveland Cavaliers visited the White House on Thursday to celebrate their NBA Championship, and before a photo shoot Iman Shumpert’s jaw hit the floor as he learned in real time that President Obama’s podium was – that’s right – portable.
It’s customary, of course, that during a team’s visit to the White House they present the president with a jersey and then snap some photos. But Obama wanted the podium out of the way to ensure a better shot, as one does, so he motioned to some staffers to take care of it.
As this seemingly innocuous task of breaking down and literally carrying the podium away took place, Shumpert watched on with sheer unadulterated amazement:
One has to imagine that there are countless other aspects of the White House more objectively tantalizing than the transportation of a podium, but alas, sometimes we can’t pick and choose what excites us.
