WATCH: Even Michelle Tunes Her Husband Out!


President Obama And First Lady Participate In Toys For Tots Event At Joint Base Anacostia-Boiling

Michelle Obama is just like the rest of America – when Barack Obama starts talking, she tunes out!

On Wednesday, President and Mrs. Obama attended a Toys for Tots event at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling to help sort toys by gender and age group. President Obama started his remarks with, “I’m the big elf!” (Oh, you’re a big SOMETHING, alright!) went on for a while and then ended with an attempt at humor – but Michelle was having none of it!

“I am positive that girls, zero to two, that’s perfect for the “Call of Duty” video game. Isn’t that right?”

“What video game?” his wife inquired.

“See, she didn’t even get the joke,” Obama told the crowd.

“I wasn’t listening,” the first lady retorted.

[“She wasn’t listening to me!” Obama exclaimed.]


A little holiday tension in the Obama household this Christmas? Decide for yourself – watch video of the exchange and tell us in the comments below:

(All Obama-bashing aside, the U.S Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program is a very worthwhile charity, please look into how you can donate toys for local needy children HERE.)
