President Obama Cracks Carson Wentz Joke During Campaign Event In Philly


Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton took a break from campaigning Tuesday while she recovers from pneumonia.

In the meantime, President Barack Obama decided to lend a helping hand and go on the campaign trail, and that included a stop in Philadelphia.

Speaking to a large crowd of Philadelphia Eagles fans gave the 44th president a gateway to make a quip about Carson Wentz, whom Philly selected with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Wentz picked up his first career win Sunday against the Cleveland Browns. He threw for 278 yards with two touchdowns passes and zero interceptions.

Vice President Joe Biden might be right. Now does seem like a good time to get on the “Wentz Wagon.”

Clinton currently has a 6-point lead in Pennsylvania over Donald Trump, according to Real Clear Politics poll data. The winner of Pennsylvania is awarded 20 electoral votes.
