President Obama Weighs In On Jessica Simpson

President Obama Weighs In On Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson rocks a Burberry newsboy cap as she lands in Cincinnati, Ohio on her way back to Dallas to see her boyfriend Tony Romo on Monday.

The 28-year-old country singer continues to receive attention for her fuller figure, which was first noted last week as she sang at the Chili Cookoff in Florida.

The Today Show‘s Matt Lauer spoke to President Obama in a pre-Super Bowl interview and mentioned that him and his family were removed from the US Weekly’s cover shoot to make room for the hot topic of Jessica Simpson‘s weight. Obama coyly responded, “Yeah, it’s a little hurtful!” Then he continued looking at the cover, saying [that Jessica is] “in a weight battle, apparently. Yeah. Oh well.”

    I think it was an offhand comment–he should realize that people are listening to EVERY SINGLE WORD he says and he should not comment on such things. He wouldn’t want anyone saying the things they said about Jessica Simpson to someone he knows or cares about.

    He was neither being rude or kidding. If you look at the cover it says Jessica Simpson’s Weight Battle. He was just quoting it.

    He needs to weigh in more on the economy,our troops,security and his corrupt people. This President is a politician by saying he also reads Twilight. The world is falling apart but he has time to read many books including Twilight.

    how do you expect him to respond?
    Matt Lauer, shouldn’t have even brought it up..
    it was off-hand, & why should we pay attention to
    stuff so futile. When our country should be number one.
    Which it obviously is. Maybe reporters should try&remember
    what they learned in college. &not bring this celeb crap to the white house when they meet with our President.

    Y are u causing drams. OBAMA SAID THAT CUZ THE HEADLINE UNDER HER PICTURE WAS “WEIGHT BATTLE” he didnt just think of that by himself to say. Im sure hes been just lounging around all week watching ACCESS HOLLYWOOD! wowww

    don'tcare.. Says:

    &so what if he reads books. It’s called multi-tasking honey.

    For gods sake Says:

    um….The interviewer asked him about how he felt about being cut out of the photo. When he said ‘oh well’ he was referring to the fact that the magazine had cut him out of the photo of him and his family on the cover. The same Photo appears inside the mag with him. If you saw the interview and the context in which the comment was made you would understand!!!!

    You need to post the video of Obama’s interview. Your blog is incredibly misleading. He merely repeated the headline.

    #8 For gods sake – people are just looking for ways to cut our president down. They are watching him so closely it’s sickening.
    People need to let him do the job for which he was elected.

    He said he read twilight with his kids. I think that with everything this man has to face I am glad that he is still trying to take the time out to spend quality time with his kids. I know everyone wants him to solve america’s and the world’s problems, but at the end of the day he is still a father to two great kids. if more parents took the time to spend with their kids we might not have so many social problems we have in the country.

    His quote was taking out of context.

    That’s not what he actually said in the interview.

    ashlee Says:

    he was just reading the cover and his responses was sort of like, “yeah. oh well” like what’s the big deal?

    Not News!

    They should not ask him stupid questions like this.

    tyrone Says:

    He was not saying Jessica is fat. He was joking about the frivolity of the story, that just so happened, cut him out of the family picture. I am sure he does not care at all.

    whoever buys jessica’s new dvd should be shot.
    c’mon if you have 10 bucks to waste, why don’t u just give it to a homeless guy.

    jjsu Says:

    Why would he even comment on this BS? (Even if he was just quoting it) He shouldn’t be concered with the tabloid nonsense. And… if he thinks Jessica is having a “weight battle” what does he think about his own wife who is obviously bigger than Jessica?

    Solquist Says:

    What I think people are missing is the fact that he was being a bit sarcastic there… he was making the point of how silly the whole subject is.

    umm not news duhhh. maybe you should be asking the preident political questions because wth does j. simpson have to do with the ****** economy.

    Since everyone is so perceptive you would realise the President was reading the title on the US weekly cover out loud. He made an expression which led me to believe he didnt have any issue with either sharing the cover or the fact that anyone had gained weight. It was an offhanded comment meaning-such is life. We tend to read too much into things at times. As for Jessica, she has claimed the spotlight. Every star has their way of having their moment, some steal, some dui, some have what we term strange personal relationships, some even pretend to be going insane and then the world watches as everything works itself out. WE HAVE BEEN SUCKERED ONCE AGAIN……….Watch as Jessica sheds those pounds……………you’ll see. Maybe one of the popular weight loss experts can weigh in on this action……….make another one of those ADS…………like they did with Jessica and that POPULAR FACIAL PRODUCT.

    sucre Says:

    Yep, I guess it just means he has no idea who JS is so he just read the cover.
    What was he supposed to say. I mean think about it. A president of the USA speaking about a ”stars” weight. Come on…
    But why in the world he even had to answer a question like this???
    This all just sound like a mistake …
    Anyways, and about him reading Twilight…hes just down to earth.
    And its too early to judge him.

    groundcontrol Says:

    Typical stupid male statement. He better learn to think faster on his feet than that. Thank god it wasn’t a dig about a recalcitrant ally.

    He’s the President. His words are important. They have repercussions. Remember Richard Nixon and his stupid off hand remark about Charles Manson? Obama couldn’t say, “A weight battle? oh how silly she looks lovely.” Or make a joke about a pretty woman bumping his mug off the cover leaving 4 beautiful women instead? Yes, I thought it was carelessly mean. I also thought it was cheap and nasty journalism to even bring it up.

    What a misleading post. I just watched the interview and President Obama wasn’t even calling Jessica Simpson fat. Get over yourselves, you haters!
