President Barack Obama booted by Jessica Simpson's booty?
President Obama got bumped from Us Weekly by Jessica Simpson's rump?
"Yeah, it's a little hurtful," Obama joked when Matt Lauer showed him the new issue of Us Weekly, on stands now, featuring a portrait of his family.
"You got replaced by Jessica Simpson!" added Lauer, who talked with Obama before the Super Bowl aired Sunday on NBC.
"Who's in a weight battle, apparently. Oh well!" Obama said.
At least he's got a sense of humor and perspective about media coverage.
What do you think of the president's response?
And who would have thought that a leopard print belt and a few extra pounds could be more important to people than our new president? Was Us Weekly right about its choice?
