The lipstick on his collar didn’t come from the first lady, so President Obama called out the culprit immediately, beating the rumor mill in the process.
At a White House reception before a friendly crowd Tuesday night, the president opened his remarks by noting “a sign of warmth” on his collar. He then singled out the aunt of "American Idol" runner-up Jessica Sanchez.
“Where is she? Auntie, right there. Look at this,” he said pointing to his collar. His comments evoked widespread laughter from those attending a celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.
"I just want everybody to witness," Obama said. "So I do not want to be in trouble with Michelle. That's why I'm calling you out right in front of everybody."
