‘The White House is not that exciting.’ President Obama slams TV series ‘Scandal’ as ‘Unrealistic’

Screen-shot-2014-01-16-at-11.39.36-AM‘Scandal’ is one of those shows that sucks you in so much that when an episode concludes, you kind of have to give yourself a little shake and make a mental note that it’s all fiction. While she may be based on a real-life ‘fixer,’ our beloved Olivia Pope is not a real person. For the most part, even the most devoted Gladiator realizes that while the overall theme of some of the stories illustrated on the show were pulled from actual headlines, a lot of the details and heart-pounding craziness comes strictly from the imaginations of Shonda Rhimes and those über talented writers that she has on staff.

According to The Atlantic’s Robinson Meyer, President Obama and Mrs. O recently began watching the hit ABC drama. While it offers great entertainment, during a discussion about what he thought of the series, he expressed that it isn’t reflective of what’s really going down in the nation’s capital.

“[The White House] is not that exciting,” Robinson overheard him say during lunch at a café. “Staffers don’t have enough time to engage in too much scandalous behavior.”

Well that’s relieving, ‘cos it won’t be good to find out that Obama has real-life Olivia Pope that he’s creeping off to see. Not to mention all of the other scandalous deeds that happen on the show. I’d love to hear Lady O’s take on the series though.
