While speaking to the National Urban League in New Orleans, Louisiana this evening, President Obama went off script to criticize Americans for watching the hit television show Desperate Housewives:
Pres Obama says American kids competing against kids in Beijing & Bangalore "and they're not hanging out...not watching Real Housewives."— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) July 26, 2012
Pres Obama said the "hanging out/Real Housewives" crack were not part of his prepared remarks -- "but I'm just saying."— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) July 26, 2012
UPDATE: It's Real Housewives the president criticized folks for watching (he did not mention Desperate Housewives, as was originally stated in this post). Apparently, the two shows are different. This post has been updated to reflect that fact.
