Obama Knows His Gay Stores

Politicians are human. Humans are animals. And, as we all know, animals like to have a bit of fun, even when the human is Barack Obama campaigning across the country.

That helps explain why the Democratic presidential candidate recently played a carefree game of Taboo with press and staff aboard his campaign plane. For those of you who don’t know, Taboo involves picking a card, which will contain a term or saying and the player must get their teammates to guess it. They cannot, however, use certain prohibited words. It’s great fun.

Anyway, as mentioned, Obama recently played and helped produce this humorous anecdote:

When [Obama assistant Reggie] Love described the Gap as “where gay people buy clothes,” Obama — who may or may not have heard the clue right — shouted out “Abercrombie and Fitch,” drawing laughs from the younger players.

He must have had a momentary flashback of his famed Abercrombie moment.
