In a couple of weeks, Orlando will play host to the 2016 Invictus Games, an international athletic competition for injured vets founded by Prince Harry and with which he is very involved. To drum up enthusiasm, Harry is publicly beefing with the Obamas on Twitter.
This feud is great and should continue through the remainder of the Obama administration and into perpetuity.
The Obamas fired the first shots with some good old American trash-talk.
Harry promptly responded—with a little assist from his grandmother. First came a message via the Kensington Palace Twitter account: “Wow @FLOTUS and @POTUS, some @weareinvictus fighting talk there! You can dish it out, but can you take it? - H.” Then came this video.
“Boom—really, please,” says the 90-year-old queen, who can barely keep from giggling and appears to be having a genuinely good time squaring off with the President and First Lady of the United States for the entertainment of the social media masses.
I love this fake feud. This fake feud is wonderful.
