President Obama Name Drops Mike Trout

Friday, February 7, 2014 6:45 PM

President Obama casually dropped Mike Trout’s name when talking about the farm bill that Congress just passed. Here’s the quote:

"Now, despite its name, the farm bill is not just about helping farmers. Secretary Vilsack calls it a jobs bill, an innovation bill, an infrastructure bill, a research bill, a conservation bill. It's like a Swiss Army Knife. It's like Mike Trout, for those of you who know baseball. It's somebody who's got a lot of tools and multitasks. It's creating more good jobs.”

I don’t know. Is that good? Is it good when the President references you when talking about a bill that covers just about everything? Pretty sure it is. My only question is can you add that to his tools? Hits for power, hits for average, runs well, good arm, excellent fielder, President compares you to a bill to make sure you realize it can do everything and more. Mike Trout just redefining the game.
