The students at a Charter School in Washington D.C. were told that they were going to have a very special guest. Can you imagine their disappointment when the President showed up? One student even told Obama that she was really hoping that someone like Beyonce would visit the school.
President Obama and First Lady Michelle visited the school for the National Day of Sevvice and Remembrance on September 11. The President was hoping to make a good impression on the students. Instead, he left them disappointed.
One student, named Madison, told the president that she “really wanted it to be Beyonce.”
The president had a good sense of humor about it, saying that his daughters Malia and Sasha would probably want the same thing. Madison turned her little insult into a compliment when she added, “but then I realized it was going to be you and that’s even better.” But the president wasn’t buying it.
Obama said: “Thanks for saying that. Especially in front of the press. Even though I know you don’t mean it.”
