Obama inauguration scandal

Most of planet earth saw Barack Obama fluff his lines as he was sworn in as US President on Tuesday. Well to add to the embarrassment it’s been revealed that the music played at the inauguration was taped and not live.

Inaugural Ceremony organiser Carole Florman told the Associated Press that they were forced to mime to a recorded version of John Williams' piece 'Air And Simple Gifts'; "They were very insistent on playing live until it became clear that it would be too cold".

Pity, they didn’t decide to do the same with Aretha Franklin...
