Papi-Obama Selfie Was Cheap Samsung Promo

Photo By David Americo (Arias) Ortiz
The President Obama-David Ortiz joint 'selfie' (that has been drooled over by almost everyone in the mainstream sports media) turns out to be a cheap promotional scam by Papi's cell-phone maker, Samsung. Is nothing sacred anymore? On Monday, Ortiz signed an endorsement deal with Samsung, and "poof" the 'selfie' surfaces the next day. Samsung has admitted that they "facilitated" the Presidential photo-op. A company release stated, "We were thrilled to see the special, historic moment David Ortiz captured with his Galaxy Note 3 during his White House visit. It was an honor to help him capture such an incredible and genuine moment of joy and excitement." Barf.
