"[T]he president played basketball this morning with staff members and a few special guests, including [actors] George Clooney and Tobey Maguire," the pool report read this morning. Finally, a couple hours and a state later, a reporter asked the president the question on the minds of most Americans: Who won?
The president played it cool. "What basketball game?" said the president.
"With Clooney," the reporter responded.
"Of course George and I won but we're all winners because nobody got hurt," the president responded, after his remarks today in Reno, Nevada.
The game took place in Los Angeles, California, following the president's mega-fundraiser last night at Clooney's luxurious home.
