Obama Gets Facts of Billie Jean King Tennis Career All Wrong at Award Ceremony - Video 8/12/09

Here is video of President Obama yesterday getting the facts of Tennis star Billie Jean King's career all wrong as he presented her the Medal of Freedom at the White House. You can see King's face as Obama cited her stats, but did so inaccurately.

“They didn’t get any of my facts right,” King lightheartedly noted afterward. “Did you see all the – how many titles I won? I was cracking up.”

“I thought it was adorable,” she said.

Asked what Obama got wrong, she said, “Well the Grand Slam’s at 39 not at 12.” . . . . . . . . MORE
