File under: that’s not saying much
From the Washington Examiner, a quote from Michelle Obama:
I am now more popular than the president…
Here’s the full context:
Speaking at a Joining Forces event, First Lady Michelle Obama highlighted one of her TV cameos that made her “fan favorite in every household.”
“I am now more popular than the president, because I was on iCarly,” the First Lady said with a smile. “There are kids who probably didn’t know that I was the First Lady, but they know that I was on iCarly,” she added.
So is she bragging or stating a fact or making an excuse or advocating for Barry to appear on iCarly? (BTW, Spencer is the show’s real highlight.)
Since iCarly is on Nickelodeon (a part of the MTV sub-empire and subservient to the Viacom empire), I’d say Barry getting a very favorable guest shot isn’t out of the question.
