White House Forbids Photos of Obama Shirtless

*The White House banned reporters and photographers from taking shirtless pictures of President Obama while he snorkeled yesterday, an excursion that was part of his Hawaii vacation.

According to The New York Times’ pool report, reporters traveling with the President were issued, “strict instructions that there would be no long lenses or other sneaky attempts to take pictures of a shirtless leader of the free world,” while he and his family went snorkeling in the Hanauma Bay Nature Reserve, reports the Huffington Post.

The White House has good reason to try to cap the cameras; in 2008, fresh off his election victory, photos were snapped of Obama as he swam in Hawaii [see photo above]; they were plastered all across tabloid magazines, and even made the cover of The Washingtonian. That magazine declared him “hot.”

In fact, photoshopping Obama became a cottage industry; even that Washingtonian photo was altered. “I know we changed the color of his suit to red, and dropped out the background,” the magazine’s lifestyle editor Leslie Milk said.

Earlier this year, photographers were able to get photos of the President swimming with his daughter in the gulf, but only from the neck up. “I’m not going to let you guys take a picture of me with my shirt off,” he told them at the time.

@Kiana-Pres Obama may be the Presidential basketball shooter, but Michelle has the FirstGuns...a toned arm woman is an acrobat in my head!!! Parallel bars-or closet rods-are no problem at all! Hahahahaha ... but yes that family is more beautiful than the one portrayed by Bill Cosby on television...truly Hixtable-cious reality! LOL!
