Tony Hawk Skates Around the White House

Succumbing to Ashton Kutcher’s peer pressure, pro skater Tony Hawk took a short roll in the White House on Friday. Hawk skated in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building and the Grand Foyer while attending a Father’s Day celebration hosted by President Obama. Shortly after blurry photos of Hawk’s presidential skateboard ride were posted to Twitter, a handful of nobodies jumped at the chance to criticize the “asshole” skater and the Obama administration for somehow disrespecting the sacred building. I wonder if they felt the same way when President Bush let Israeli Prime Minister Olmert rip around on a Segway. See the inane twitter attacks, both real and sarcastic, after the jump.
