Blog Guy, do you think President Barack Obama uses steroids?
Not until I saw the video of these new Obama family action figure toys. I mean, His muscles are bulging out of his jacket. And he looks just plain nuts.
But don’t all presidential action figures have kind of exaggerated features?
It depends. President William Howard Taft weighed 335 pounds, so his action figure came in four boxes and had to be assembled.
And President James Madison was only 5’4″ and weighed 100 pounds, so his action figure was made of pipe cleaners and came in a small envelope.
