President OBAMA Rejects Justin Bieber’s ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, but donates instead
Some of the most famous people in the world have been drenching themselves in freezing cold water and posting the video online in a fundraising stunt called the ice bucket challenge.
It has helped raise money for and awareness of ALS, a neurodegenerative disease.
However, despite being nominated by Justin Bieber, the White House has confirmed President Barack Obama will not take part, but will be donating.
And it seems pretty clear … President Barack Obama believes images showing the dousing himself in ice water would be damaging to the presidency — despite the fact several politicians have already done it; including Chris Christie, Bobby Jindal and Joe Kennedy III.
