Obama’s Pop Culture Knowledge Pretty Much Limited to Basketball

Posted by on May 15, 2012 at 8:54 am

Unless he’s got his trusty TOTUS feeding him the answers, the towering intellect occupying the White House is pretty much clueless when it comes to current events. Unless it involves basketball, of course.

President Obama got about half the questions right in his “pop culture quiz” during a daytime talk show interview taped Monday, revealing his knowledge of reality star Kim Kardashian but ignorance about the recent popularity of an erotic novel.

In an interview with ABC’s “The View” set to air Tuesday, Obama demonstrated his pop culture savvy, correctly identifying Kim Kardashian as the one who was only married 72 days.

“Because he was a ball player,” Obama added quickly. “I know he was a ball player. That’s how I know, from watching basketball.”

Obama apparently wished for a phone-a-friend option when it came to a question about a bestselling erotic fiction novel, saying he’d have to ask his wife when he got home.

The View host Joy Behar described the book as “the controversial sex book that’s on millions of women’s bedside tables,” but the president could not name the title.

“I don’t know that,” said Obama. “I’ll ask Michelle when I get home…I’ll ask Michelle when I get home what’s going on.”

Co-host Sherri Shepherd suggested that the president’s response might pass for the correct answer.

It’s like affirmative action for dummies. Doesn’t know the answer, but the butt-kissers give him credit nonetheless. It’s kind of sad, actually, that the morons from The View seems halfway intelligent next to this boob.

Speaking of idiots, Obama’s greatest media sycophant may be even dumber than Obama.
