When President Barack Obama stepped up to the White House podium Tuesday night (May 28), there was something a bit off. The president joked about it right off the bat, mentioning the lipstick stain on his collar.
“I want to thank everybody who’s here for the incredible warmth of the reception. A sign of the warmth is the lipstick on my collar,” Obama says, “I have to say I think I know the culprit.” He then called out for “American Idol” alum Jessica Sanchez, who was in attendance. It wasn’t Sanchez who was at fault though, as the President explains, “It wasn’t Jessica. It was her aunt. Where is she? Auntie, right there. Look at this. Look at this. I just want everybody to witness.”
President Obama also joked that he didn’t want his wife to get the wrong idea, saying, “I do not want to get in trouble with Michelle, so I’m calling you out right in front of everybody.” Surely Michelle will understand, Mr. President.
