Yep, the president of the United States took to his Twitter account last night to promote $30 Obamacare t-shirts with the initials “BFD.”
@BarackObama what is a BFD?

It’s a reference, of course, to when Vice President Joe Biden hailed the costly, constitutionally suspect legislation as a “Big F**king Deal.”
Twitter reaction was not altogether positive:
@BarackObama I respect my President, but I don't love that he's using "BFD" on a t-shirt.
