Fake White Sox Fan? Obama Calls It “Cominskey”

Barack Obama with an embarrassing gaffe in an interview on MLB Network last night. While chatting with Bob Costas, Obama clearly calls the White Sox’s former longtime home field “Cominskey Park”. It was no slip of the tongue.

(So-called Sox fan calls it “Cominskey” Park. Awkward.)

Obama has long claimed loyalty to the White Sox thanks to spending a good deal of his political and professional life on the south side of Chicago.

Obama says it at the :30 mark.



Amusing to hear Costas give a loud and clear “Comiskey” later in the conversation, as almost a signal to the President. I’d give Obama a pass on that if he hadn’t claimed for so long to be devoted Chisox fan. You don’t make that kind of colossal mistake if that’s the case.
