Obama Apologizes for Quip About Disabled People

Post by shammy on Sat Mar 21, 2009 6:50 am

WASHINGTON — President Obama quickly apologized for his quip on “The Tonight Show” on NBC on Thursday comparing his modest bowling skills to those of athletes who have disabilities.

Chatting with the host, Jay Leno, the president said he had been practicing at the White House bowling alley and rolled a 129. “It was like the Special Olympics or something,” Mr. Obama said.

Mr. Obama and his aides recognized the slip at once and moved to minimize the damage. Mr. Obama called the chairman of the Special Olympics, Tim Shriver, from Air Force One on his way back to Washington on Thursday before the taped interview with Mr. Leno was broadcast.

“He apologized in a way I think was very moving,” Mr. Shriver said Friday on “Good Morning America.”
