An official transcript from the White House from a Sunday event recognizing the Kennedy Center Honorees sent out that night quoted Obama saying during his remarks, “I’m mad living here a little bit.”
But before any Obama opponents could start getting that quote printed on bumper stickers, the White House sent out a correction. On Monday morning, the White House’s Office of the Press Secretary blasted out an email with a subject line that read: “CORRECTION: Remarks by the President at Reception for Kennedy Center Honorees.” Got to love the all-caps sense of urgency.
It turns out that Obama didn’t tell the crowd, “I’m mad living here a little bit,” but instead said, “I’m ad-libbing here a little bit.”
