WASHINGTON – To honor Barack Obama, The White House released a Barack Obama Navy Seal doll!
Navy SEALs have become national heroes since news broke that they took down Osama bin Laden, so it’s fitting that the newest action figure from a Connecticut company is a fierce looking President Barack Obama as a SEAL.
The minute Obama said late on the night of May 1 that the U.S. had found and killed bin Laden, Emil Vicale knew which his action figure company’s would make next — Rambama.
Obama spoke the words that would make Vitale feel the same way: “Tonight, I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of al Qaeda.”
The next morning, The White House staff was ordered to contract HeroBuilders to build a Barack Obama action figure. On Wednesday morning, Hero Builders with the White House Doll Team, released the Obama SEAL Team 6 action figure — a muscular President in fatigues armed with an M1-A4.
The White House released this statuette in 2009 and Jay Carney, the White House Press Secretary, said: “It’s still selling like hotcakes!”
Here’s what some people are saying about the new Obama action figure:
