When the President of the United States of America calls, you answer the phone!
Overnight on Wednesday a lovely phone call was recorded from inside the Oval Office at the White House, as President Obama called up Team USA stars Tim Howard and Clint Dempsey to congratulate them on their performances at the World Cup.
President Obama said they guys “did us proud” and he explained how they “captured the hearts and minds” of the country.
President Obama also took time out to tell Tim Howard that he should be prepared for his return to America, as “I don’t know how you’re gonna survive the mobs when you come back”. Obama advised Howard to shave his beard for anonymity.
