President Obama said two weeks ago that he would not let his son, if he existed, play football: “I would not let my son play pro football.”
Obama has also criticized the violence of the game, stating, “I’m a big football fan, but I have to tell you, if I had a son, I’d have to think long and hard before I let him play football.” He then said that football was like smoking: “At this point, there’s a little bit of caveat emptor. These guys, they know what they’re doing. They know what they’re buying into. It is no longer a secret. It’s sort of the feeling I have about smokers, you know.”
