After hearing about this I kind of feel sorry for Michelle Obama. Imagine being married to such a buffoon? While pandering to the LGBT crowd President Obama dropped this line:
“Michelle outdoes me in pushups as well,” he said, after saying that she’s taken some criticism on her technique “because she doesn’t go all the way down” – a line that he let hang, naughtily, provoking laughter from the crowd.
Buzz Feed has the full quote, which doesn’t really clear things up.
Jimmie B gives him the benefit of the doubt (while pointing out that he cracked this joke on the anniversary of D-Day, a day he commemorated with a single tweet):
Okay, now I want to be fair here. President Obama probably didn’t mean to make an oral sex joke at the expense of his own wife. It is most likely that he fumble-tongued (no pun intended) his way through the comment and paused because, well, he knew he had just said something truly stupid. On the other hand, we have been told more times than there are starts in the sky that Barack Obama is a master orator, a speaker without peer in modern politics, a man who handles the spoken word like Paganini handled the violin. If that is true, then it’s reasonable for us to assume that he meant to deliver that crude remark about his own wife before an audience he was absolutely sure would get the joke.
