Well, the White House got the puff interview it was looking for. After a surprisingly inquisitorial session with NBC Today’s Ann Curry – who perhaps was looking to prove herself as new host of the program – the president sat down with reliable Obama cheerleader and softball pitcher Robin Roberts of ABC.
Roberts asked him about Weiner, gave him a chance to dismiss all those mean Republicans who are picking on him, and then got right into important subject matter like what it’s like to be Sasha and Malia’s father.
You may remember, she got to interview Obama on Inauguration Day. Here’s how that discussion began:
ROBIN ROBERTS: “Mr. President.” Sound good, doesn’t it.
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: It’s got a certain ring to it.
ROBERTS: It was beautiful, watching you dance with your wife, just one of the highlights of this long day. When you walked out and you saw the sea of humanity all the way back to Lincoln, what are you going to remember most?
Sure, today’s segment, which aired on “Good Morning America,” had some cute moments. But why even ask any political questions?” If we’re doing fluff, let’s do fluff.
