A teenager in Great Britain got drunk and sent Obama an email calling him a prick. The response? He’s now banned from the United States for the rest of his life, and the FBI told local British authorities to tell the kid that the email was “unacceptable.”

A British teenager who sent an email to the White House calling President Obama an obscenity was banned from America for life, The Sun reported Monday.

The FBI asked local cops to tell college student Luke Angel, 17, his drunken insult was “unacceptable.”

Angel said he fired off a single email criticizing the U.S. government after seeing a TV program about the 9/11 attacks.

He said, “I don’t remember exactly what I wrote as I was drunk. But I think I called Barack Obama a p***k. It was silly — the sort of thing you do when you’re a teenager and have had a few.”

Uh, since when is calling the President a “prick” unacceptable? I mean, he’s not King Obama. He’s an elected leader, and if calling politicians dirty names is illegal then, well, there aren’t going to be many of us who aren’t criminals.

I’ll grant that it’s not exactly the most mature or polite thing to do, but since when were immaturity and rude words illegal?
