Most politicians are smart enough not to show their face during game time, unless they have something important to say…
NBC’s Matt Lauer took his opportunity to spread Obama’s important message of transition into the White House.
Lauer: “Obama, you are the coolest President evah, like, if you asked me to the prom, I would have totally said yes. How are you adjusting to the Whitehouse?
Obama: “Fine, everybody thinks I’m cool, but my daughters are the coolest.”
Lauer: “Wow, I bet, but look at the bloodline they come from. Mr. President, will you take me out to dinner tonight? I mean, how do you feel about Jessica Simpson replaing you on the cover of US magazine?”
Obama: “Well at least she’s fat.”
Lauer: “HAHAHA, Like totally. Mr. President, in many circles people worship you…”
Lauer: “Oh yes, I’ve got pictures of you all through my house. I even got one right above my bed so you’re the first thing I see when I wake up.”
Obama: “That uh, doesn’t uh, surprise me, uh really, a lot of people worship me.”
Lauer: “Worship you? No, even bigger, you’re like totally a rock star, can I be your groupie? I mean how do you cope with that.”
Obama: “Well Matt uh, I need guys like you, people in the mainstream media to keep the pressure completely off of me, otherwise, I can’t do my job if I have to answer serious questions.”
Laurer: “Well Mr. Oh so hot President, I can do that for you, if we can get together for a nice candlelit dinner and a big bottle of wine and who knows where our relationship, I mean your media relationship can go from here.”
Okay, so that wasn’t the actual transcript, but wasn’t that one of the most pathetic interviews you have ever seen from the main stream media? Thanks NBC for interrupting my Superbowl for that pathetic moment in interview history. How about putting a couple of comments from Chris Collinsworth so he can tell us how great of a quarterback Donovan McNabb is even though he’s not in the Superbowl, and please, tell us how “Historical” it is to have Bruce Springsteen performing in the Superbowl for his very first time because nobody has overused the word “Historical” this year.
Thanks NBC, I broke away from your “Ongoing Superbowl Coverage” to come write this article.
