When it comes to church, President Obama can’t avoid trouble.
As the First Family attended an Easter Sunday service at St. John’s Church across from the White House Sunday, the Rev. Luis Leon unleashed a vicious and unholy attack on New York.
He insulted the Yankees.
With the Obamas sitting in the sixth row, Leon told congregants that “baseball season has started” and that the church’s drummer is a huge Yankees fan.
Leon then said he wanted to remind everybody that the Orioles have beaten the Yankees twice so far, and therefore, “The world lives in hope.”
“I’m a fairly charitable person,” the good reverend said, “but I have to tell you – I hate the Yankees.”
Laughter erupted from the pews. It was unclear whether the Obamas joined in.
