Barack Obama Regrets Inflammatory Interview With His Children!
Yesterday Wonkette brought you theEXCLUSIVE FOOTAGE SEEN NOWHERE ELSE of Barack Obama's 10- and 7-year-old daughters, Misha and Selma or whatever, being interviewed by some pretty Access Hollywood gal. This was a first, as Obama usually likes to hide his children in underground caves to shield them from THE SPINELESS INTERNET. Naturally, everyone made fun of these two children and, by the end of the day, were blaming them for starting the Iraq War and also capitulating on FISA. Nary an Internet Addict found the children, say, adorable. And that is why Barack Obama told adult-child Diane Sawyer on today's Good Morning America that he'll never put his children on teevee again.
Ms. Sawyer: All right, and one final thing. We saw you with your children in the last couple of days, the whole family sitting and talking. Is this the future?
Mr. Obama: No. You know, it was an exception. It was Malia’s birthday. We were in Montana. Everybody was having a good time and I think we got carried away a little bit. Generally what makes them so charming is the fact that they’re not spending a lot of time worrying about TV cameras or politics and we want to keep it that way.
Ms. Sawyer: Sorry you did it?
Mr. Obama: … Michelle and I – particularly given the way that it sort of went around the cable stations. I don’t think it’s healthy and it’s something that we’ll be avoiding in the future.
Yeah, definitely not a good policy, but we understand why he allowed it. "When in Montana...," as they say.
