The Boston Red Sox made their trip to the White House on Tuesday, and designated hitter David Ortiz wanted to make sure that he had a way to remember the visit. He took a "selfie" of himself with the President that has been retweeted over 40,000 times!
Later comes word of his promotional deal with Samsung, which had people begging the question- was the spontaneous selfie just another advertising plug? FULL STORY
Samsung released this statement about the picture:
“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. Similar to the selfie Ellen was able to capture during the Oscars, this was an opportunity for David to share the incredible moment with his fans.”

A Selfie is something like looking in the mirror you might look and say to yourself who is that or smile and say I'm doing all right but Is it being proud? I don't think so. it's just a technological fascination that abbreviates our need for light humored self reflection.
LOL...so the 'this is god for me' moment has now become a 'was it good for you' moment. Guess it wasn't consensual PR after all? Hahahahaha! !Why working at SNL is so easy
Didn't really mean to turn this into a religious thing. Oooops...just stick in another 'o' please. Sometimes I crack myself up :)
What's the big deal? Don't have pics taken if you don't want it to be used.
This is getting ridiculous.
The GOP Solution: Turn all the Old, Sick, Poor, Non-white, Non-christian, Female, and Gay people into slaves. Then whip them until they are Young, Healthy, Rich, White, Christian, Male, and Straight. Or until they are dead. Then turn them into Soylent Green to feed the military during the next "unfunded/off-the-books" war. And don't forget the GOP all time favorites........TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH!!!..........and........GET RID OF SS AND MEDICARE!!!
I am not dem or repub but I can tell that you are not anyone I wish to associate with. Yuck! Bigot.
How is this being a bigot? Haven't you read Ryan's budget proposal? It's what the GOP want to do. Not me. dolt.
