Nearly two years ago our White House Insider indicated President Obama’s pre-occupation with watching ESPN. This week the president himself confirms that depiction as fact.
“Well, first of all, I don’t watch network news or cable news. So in the morning, when I’m working out with Michelle, it’s on SportsCenter. This is the one thing that she allows me,” Obama told Simmons.
Obama says he is also able to “sneak in” a game while he is reading his briefings.
“I usually have to stay up until midnight or 1 a.m. reading stuff. And every once in a while I’ll sneak in a ball game as I’m reading my briefings,” he said.
While this interview with the aptly titled “BS REPORT” is rather sad in its depiction of a Commander in Chief expressing his desire to yet spend more time watching mens sports, I am also struck by the quite obvious amount of stage makeup President Obama is wearing here. The skin of the president looks downright…odd – and there even appears to be a liberal amount of eye makeup having been applied.
