President Obama's Leaked Workout Video Triggers Ridiculous Backlash (WATCH)

Obama workoutDid you hear the shocking news that is clearly an indication of a MAJOR breach in our national security? President Barack Obama was working out in the gym of the Marriott Hotel in Warsaw when someone -- possibly a nefarious someone? -- managed to get close enough to FILM him. The resulting video has been leaked, and people all over the world are asking one question: HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?

President Obama is in Eastern Europe to reaffirm his commitment to NATO allies over the crisis in Ukraine, but obviously he should be far more worried about the crisis happening within his own Secret Service. Why were regular citizens allowed to be near him? Shouldn't he have had a special bulletproof workout room built using American tax dollars? If the President can be filmed working out, what's next -- men and women marrying farm animals?????

At least that's the deranged vibe you get when reading some of the media's coverage of the leaked clip. Here's the video:

And here are a few samples of the reactions:

THIS IS SO DANGEROUS!!! What is WRONG WITH THE SECRET SERVICE???!!??? If Polish tabloids can get these pics (and video) with a camera lens, is there anyone who doesn’t think the President is vulnerable to someone armed. If you can reach the President with a camera lens like this ... you know more sinister things can happen. This is once again, our SECRET SERVICE FAILING US (and once again, in an overseas trip.) -- Fox News host Greta Van Susteren

How is this even allowed to happen? The Secret Service is commenting on it and they say they don't clear out the gym. ... They don't make people leave. They don't make people put away their cameras. They don't say anything about it. -- Michelle Kosinski, CNN

My only concern: where was the president’s security detail? Strange that some anonymous lifter could record him working out, no questions asked. -- TownHall.com

Boy, that is some masterful concern trolling. I mean, wow.

In response to this idiotic backlash, a spokesman for the Secret Service was forced to issue a statement assuring the panicked American public that the situation at the gym was "no different than if the president visited a restaurant off the record and other diners took pictures of him."

Hotel guests were not asked to leave the gym during this off the record movement, nor were they asked to refrain from taking pictures.

Additionally, all guests entering the hotel went through a security screening, and Secret Service agents were nearby as Obama worked out.

In conclusion, I think we need to focus on what's really important here, which is the fact that President Obama makes that super obnoxious Workout Face while pumping, like, 15-pound dumbbells.

Do YOU think this was a security breach?
