Obama's Latest Blunder: Shows Up at Wrong Normandy Location on Anniversary of D-Day

Houston, TX - President Obama's string of bad calls continues as one of his best opportunities in recent memory for a rating-boosting photo-op on the anniversary of the D-Day invasion went embarrassingly wrong.

The President was supposed to show up at a ceremony in France with other world leaders to commemorate the allied invasion that signaled the turning point in World War II and the defeat of Hitler's reign of terror.

Instead, Mr. Obama arrived at a La Quinta Hotel in Houston, Texas on the corner of Normandy Street. There were no visible beaches at the hotel and no world leaders assembled.

A confused President Obama went ahead and gave his prepared remarks anyway to a small crowd of angry locals who were extremely pissed at the gridlock in traffic which was caused by security surrounding the president's motorcade.

One never-to-be-fired staffer told us the mistake was easy to explain: The administration is as good at using GPS as they are at designing a website.

"We just really don't know what we're doing. Do you ever watch Veep?" the staffer asked. "That's us in real life."

The President said no one was angrier about the mistake than he was and vowed he would get to the bottom of the situation. He then asked where the nearest, upscale golf course was.

Mr. Obama stated that since he showed up somewhere with the name Normandy in it, that his effort still counted. "Half-assed is how we do everything. This is par for the course."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
