Obama heckles Ige about cold

Local News

Cold weather was the subject of a joke President Barack Obama cracked about Governor David Ige on Friday during a meeting with the Democratic Governors Association in Washington D.C.

“I am a little concerned that David Ige of Hawaii, does not know what to do with this weather. I don’t know if he owns a winter coat,” said Obama.

“I bought one in Colorado,” replied Ige with a laugh.

Governor Ige is in Washington for the winter meeting of the National Governors Association.

He’s expected to fly home next Wednesday.
