The day after the Boston Red Sox traded Kevin Youkilis, one of the most beloved players and one of just two players still with the Red Sox who was a part of both the 2004 and ’07 World Series championship teams, President Obama decided to get cute. While speaking at a Boston fundraiser, the self proclaimed political genius decided to rub it in that the fan favorite will now be playing for his Chicago White Sox and was given a well deserved round of boos. His feeble attempts to recover were greeted with increased booing. For someone whose is regularly cited as a savvy politician, this was an idiotic move. The Red Sox fans, still reeling from the loss of one of the most popular in Red Sox history, paid between $250 and $2500 to have the president talk trash and they were not happy.
