Rowdy town hall protesters, take note: Please do not correct the president’s faulty math. It’s rude. And un-American.
Instead, follow the cue of tennis player Billie Jean King and embrace Obama math as “adorable.”
This is the polite and patriotic thing to do.
Before presenting tennis legend Billie Jean King with the Medal of Freedom Wednesday, President Obama ticked off some of her accomplishments: 12 Grand Slam titles, 101 doubles titles, 67 singles titles.
“Pretty good, Billie Jean,” he quipped.
But he didn’t get any of it right, according to King herself.
“They didn’t get any of my facts right,” King lightheartedly noted afterward. “Did you see all the – how many titles I won? I was cracking up.”
“Not even in the ballpark,” she continued.
King found it amusing, and said her accomplishments on the court aren’t the most important.
“I thought it was adorable,” she said.
