Celebrities Can Barge into the White House Whenever They Please
When President Obama declared the White House to be the "people's house' during his presidency, we didn't know that meant passersby could just walk on in and ask for a meeting with him.
Cut to yesterday. Usher, who was in Washington on business, entered the northeast gate of the White house hoping to meet the president.
But when a Politico writer informed him:
"Obama had just left for Iowa and wouldn't be inside, the singer seemed disappointed."
"He did?" Usher said.
Note to self: Celebrities can just walk into the White House whenever they want to.
