Obama’s embarrassing history FAIL while raising pinky with NBC; ‘No wonder Putin is kicking our a**’

This year’s pre-Super Bowl presidential interview was intended to be a softball with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie — no more hard-hitting questions from Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly.

But President Obama still managed to blow it by demonstrating his poor knowledge of American history. Worse yet, it involved American presidential history.

“We make beer,” Obama told Guthrie while holding a glass of White House brew in the White House kitchen, pinky finger delicately raised. (“No wonder Putin is kicking our asses,” one tweeter griped.)

“First president since George Washington to make some booze in the White House,” the president bragged.

Oh? Twitter users jumped all over that one. The first people to live in the White House were John and Abigail Adams.

Here’s a tweet with a Vine attached. Turn the sound on at the upper-left corner of the video.

The truly amazing thing about his flub was that it wasn’t even in response to a question. The beer-guzzler-in-chief probably had that one all prepared ahead of time.

And then there’s this, with photo attached:

And then there were these observations:

But the response that really caught my eye was the one from the Twitter user who noticed something peculiar about the presidential pinkie:

Groan. Truth be told, Obama did better at the O’Reilly interview. Of course, it didn’t take long before someone made a humorous video of the flub.
