Obama Kids -- Most Baller Father's Day Gift Ever

6/16/2010 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

When your father is the Leader of the Free World, there tend to be some pretty cool perks -- like when Sasha and Malia Obama went to the Lakers game last night ... and picked up an AWESOME Father's Day gift for their dad.

Obama Kids
Sources close to the situation -- but not too close -- tell us the daughters really wanted to get their dad a Lakers jersey for his special day. So, AEG president Tim Leiweke -- whose suite they happened to be sitting in -- ran down to the Lakers team shop in the Staples Center and had an Obama jersey made up on the spot.

To top things off, Phil Jackson even autographed the gear for the kids after the game.

Way cooler than that ugly tie you were gonna get your dad.

SO glad that MY tax dollars are hard at work carting this bogus family all over the world doing what I cannot afford to do. Would hate to have MY $$$ go for something useful like paying down the deficit.

What a joke of a president we have. Golf, Paul McCartney, shooting hoops, not attending Memorial Day Services, one lie after the next. He is, without a doubt, the worst president in American history. November, he loses the house and senate so he wont be able to get his communist agenda done, then in 2012, he can kiss his sorry @$$ good bye. Obozo makes Jimmy Carter look like Ronald Reagan!

nice gift and all but you could have had the courtesy to wait till fathers day cause now you just ruined his present from his daughters. nice one. Love the site but you could have used better judgement here. Just like when you snap celebs shopping for engagement rings. You ruin that suprise as well. I know the game but some respect would be nice

Easily the best president in 40 years. Not even close. Don't be fooled by the idiots at Fox News or the rednecks who hate the fact that a black man is in the White House. Me, and my white friends, we see the man is legit.

Some people sit all day on their fat arses complaining about the president. He's doing a great job with the mess he was left and he's all over BP. I think he is doing way better than he gets credit for and I am voting for him again.

That photo makes me sick to my stomach. As the country flounders in its depression, the American taxpayers send the Queen of DC and her posse to California for a basketball game. GREAT JOB VOTERS!!!!

It would seem to be a conflict of interest that the Presidents family, and effectively him by proxy could gain access to tickets and get free stuff. His family is granted special access and perks by proxy, all whilst he is doing such a great job as President (rolls eyes).



The ethics laws about gifts is as follows:
(c) "Gift"



(1) shall have the definition set forth in section 2635.203(b) of title 5, Code of Federal Regulations;



(2) shall include gifts that are solicited or accepted indirectly as defined at section 2635.203(f) of title 5, Code of Federal Regulations; and



His wife accepted the gift indirectly as well as the seats, in violation of the executive Office Ethics code of conduct.

Chikeeta - stupid name - like you know anything about politics. You probably get all your news from TMZ. Get another bowl of ice cream, plop down in your beanbag chair, turn on Jerry Springer and leave the thinking to people who actually know what's going on outside of Hooters and the trailer park.

The company AEg is the same company that pushed Micheal Jackson over a cliff. Why are the taxpayers putting up with this? We pay for that tranny to take her 2 spoiled brats to a game using Air Force One? He's too busy letting the Gulf drown in oil to be bothered going there and watching the game. 1 Term President!!

Chickeeta- I believe the worst President was your beloved Bush...he couldn't handle September 11, Katrina, wiping his own a$% after using the bathroom.



Marc- it must be so nice for you not to have the daily pressures of thinking given you are a brainless twit. Your statements alone show your total lack of class, something Obama exhibits on a consistent basis. I am so sick of racist, inbred rednecks making ignorant comments about their President because they can't stand to see an intelligent, well-educated BLACK man running the White House instead of cleaning it.

Im so sick of hearing about the Obama's.. she is one ugly pile of crap. She is fat and has a Bulldog underbite so big she cant even close her mouth over her MR Ed teeth... and her daughter is ugly as hell to. This first family is more into being celebritys than running the country... worst president of all time.. enough already
