Forgetful Obama? President leaves something behind
WASHINGTON - Anyone can relate. You get in your mode of transport -- car, boat, helicopter -- and you realize you forgot something: glasses, wallet, cell phone.
So it went for President Barack Obama Friday. On his way to Las Vegas to promote his immigration executive actions, Obama boarded his Marine One helicopter on the White House's South Lawn.
But he promptly disembarked and headed back into the executive mansion.
When he emerged moments later, the president said he had forgotten his Blackberry, pulling it from its holster and showing it to reporters and photographers.
But an AP photographer captured a curious thing when Obama first got out of the helicopter: His Blackberry was already in its holster.
Two phones? Or maybe it was the wallet he forgot, after all.
