On Tuesday afternoon, the White House visit for the MLB World Series champion Boston Red Sox took place and there were some special events that caught people’s attention. First off, President Barack Obama was greeted by an American-flag-blazer-wearing Jonny Gomes. Second, he got to meet the entire group of World Series champs. Lastly, he took an amazing selfie with David Ortiz.
In the case of selfies, there are very few cases in which they are socially acceptable. If you are just posting a “selfie” of yourself on social media for the entire world to see and weirdly judge what you look like from a face-to-face point of view, then that’s wrong. If you are doing it with duck lips and a peace sign, you are doing it wrong. If you’re doing it to show off the famous person you took it with, then that is so right.
Take Ortiz and President Obama, for example. The two superstar personalities are quite different, but taking one epic picture makes them on in the same.
Check out this perfect selfie that each could use to brag to their friends:
— David Ortiz (@davidortiz) April 1, 2014
Ortiz can brag because he took a selfie with one of the great leaders of the world and the most influential man in the United States. How could Obama brag about the selfie, you ask? He just got asked to take a selfie with one of the best hitters in baseball and one of the coolest guys around.
This Obama-Ortiz selfie could go down in history as one of the best of all time.
Yes, this was one of very few acceptable selfies in the history of selfie taking.
