As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama Threatens to Get a Tattoo!

In a taped appearance on the Today Show Thursday morning, President Obama explained how he and Michelle would keep their daughters from getting a tattoo: threatening to get one of their own.

What we’ve said to the girls is, ‘If you guys ever decided you’re going to get a tattoo, then mommy and me will get the exact same tattoo in the same place. And we’ll go on YouTube and show it off as a family tattoo,” Obama said. “And our thinking is that might dissuade them from thinking that somehow that’s a good way to rebel.

The remarks were part of a broader interview that was taped to air last week, but this portion was left out because of the crush of news resulting from the Boston bombings.

Obama was also asked by Today show host Savannah Guthrie about Michelle’s recent slip of the tongue that she was a “single mom.” Obama noted that his busy schedule, particularly before he won the White House, has sometimes kept them apart for extended periods, saying, “there’s no doubt that there’ve been times where Michelle probably felt like a single mom.”

Here’s the interview that ran this morning:

  1. It’s a beautiful sunny morning here in Joplin, MO USA do you REALLY think I’m going to ruin that by watching lil Mis Savannah get all gushy with Obama?
    I know of Keith Koffler, I read Keith Koffler, I admire Kieth Koffler, whoever posted this Obamagram is certainly no Keith Koffler.
    What have you done with the ‘real’ Keith Koffler and where are you hiding him? :)

  2. Geoff’s right. Eight years ago after Brian Williams swooned over his choice of M&M’s I was done. We all know we have a show pony in the WH and he’s naked as a jay bird. (sorry, too many metaphors)

    Meanwhile, in Philly, Boston, West Tx., Mobile, back to Philly, NY, LA, AZ, Chicago, ad infinitum…

    • I missed the M&M’s, but have come to believe that through Williams (and most of MSNBC), NBC has come to stand for the National Barack Channel. Other than “exclusives”, I also noted that Harrison Ford and Jackie Robinson’s widow went from the White House screening to “Meet the Press”, rather than other shows.

      Have you gotten the same impression?

  3. Whatever time he spent taping this ridiculous interview was more time than he has spent recently on improving the American economy. Great job, O’Bozo

  4. I can’t watch another sycophantic drool fest over this lazy, loutish loser. I suggest he get a giant “L” tattooed on his forehead.

    Betcha there was no discussion about radical Islamic jihadists…

  5. It would be hard to envision anything more entertaining than a u-tube video of Barack and Michelle displaying the butterfly tats on their buttocks.

  6. “Mommy and ME?” Harvard? No way!

    I think he should get a tattoo. I have two units. My sister and I have one in common–we designed it. All four, adults and kids, with the same tattoo–uh, kinda weird. I know he thinks he’s being cute and clever. But remember–this man is not funny. Not ever. PS The new inks can cause allergic reactions that can spoil your tattoo. Ask about it.

  7. Today and the rest of the archaeic morning shows are no longer relavent to today’s world. Cancel them all and the world would be a better place.

  8. Our American Idol president continues his tour. The most unserious president ever does not want to take the time to deal with things like chemical weapons releases in Syria, his rapidly imploding health care bill, our moribund stagnant economy or the lack of a budget for the last 4 years. Instead its more celebrity bullshit for the ignorant masses.

  9. I do trust all the concepts you’ve introduced for your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too short for starters. May just you please lengthen them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.
