White House Reverses Course On Selfies To Promote NBC Show

President Obama has officially flip flopped his policy on something of extreme importance: selfies.

Remember when the White House flirted with a complete ban of presidential selfies because David Ortiz took an Obama selfie with a Samsung phone, which Samsung retweeted?

The horror!

Obama just took another selfie with Bear Grylls, which will of course promote NBC. Grylls, a British adventurer, is hosting the president on a special episode of his NBC survival show, “Running Wild With Bear Grylls.”

“Glad this was the only bear I met in the park,” Obama joked on Instagram. (As if the Secret Service would let a bear get within a mile of the president.)

Hey, what’s good for future first lady Kim Kardashian must be good enough for the leader of the free world.
