Obama Selfie: White House Objects to Samsung Use

WASHINGTON (AP) -

The White House is not amused that Samsung is promoting a selfie with the president taken by a famous athlete on a Samsung phone.

Spokesman Jay Carney says the White House objects any time the president’s image is used for commercial purposes. Carney says in this case “we certainly object.”

Carney didn’t say whether the White House has asked Samsung to stop using the image.
