Obama Jokes With Voter: Turn Off Fox News
President Obama jokingly told a customer at an Ohio bar to turn off
the Fox News that was playing in the establishment on Thursday.
Obama has been making a campaign bus tour
through the country, and, naturally, made perennial swing state Ohio
one of his stops. Mark Landler, a New York Times reporter, was assigned
to write the pool report for the White House press corps on Thursday.
BuzzFeed noticed this back-and-forth he had with a man in a bar called Ziggy's:
As he thanked the group for their support, one of them, Jeff
Hawks, gestured to one of the TV's and said, "You're in a building that
has Fox news on."
Obama suggested that Hawks ask for it to be changed. "The customer is always right," he said.
Landler added later that Obama "made the remark in a humorous exchange."
