WASHINGTON (BHN) - The White House is in full defensive mode following yet another publicized incident involving flies apparently irresistibly drawn to President Obama's face.
Responding to comments made by one conservative radio host, Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters Friday, "Calling anyone a piece of you-know-what just because flies are attracted to them is irresponsible and cruel. Flies land on lots of things, it proves nothing."
One respected entomologist disagrees with the White House's denial. Professor Heinrich Lutz of Boston University believes the administration is deliberately covering up the real reason flies are constantly drawn to the President.
"The flies' behavior clearly indicate the President is, at least sometimes, extremely sh*t-faced," said Lutz. "Unless the President washes his face in the toilet, he's obviously drinking and/or using drugs - of that I'm fairly certain."
The White House responded by issuing a statement calling flies "stupid."
