Veep's Matt Walsh Underwhelmed By White House Bowling Alley

New, 1 comment

On a VIP tour of the White House during the annual Correspondents' Dinner, actor Matt Walsh had a message to Obama on the state of the White House bowling alley:

"If Obama's listening, let's just spend a little money to clean up those lanes. They're pretty beat. I'll start a bill. I'll sign a petition to fix that place. I'm not kidding . . . It's like a crappy suburban bowling alley, the actual conditions of it."

Walsh may not be too off the mark with his comments because, according to the General Services Administration (GSA), they're "now irreparable." Time reported last year that it had been 15 years since the lanes of the Harry S. Truman Bowling Alley had any maintenance or repairs to them. Walsh is known for his role in the HBO series, Veep, as well as roles in The Hangover, Ted, and Due Date.
