Two weeks ago there was no one more popular than President Barack Obama, but a pair of high-waisted jeans and a tight black tank top launched Jessica Simpson to the forefront of the public’s attention – even bumping the President off the cover of a popular celebrity magazine.
Us Weekly had planned on running a photo of the Obama family on the cover of their current issue, but replaced the First Family with a story about Jessica Simpson’s Weight-Gate – a bump that President Obama was able to find humor in.
“You got replaced by Jessica Simpson!” Matt told the President.
“Who’s in a weight battle, apparently,” Obama quipped, reading the magazine’s cover. “Oh well!”
