Obama Joins Cast of Real World D.C. to Completely Saturate TV Broadcast Schedule

Washington, D.C.—To achieve his goal of totally saturating the television broadcast lineup, President Obama took the place of an expelled roommate on MTV’s popular “Real World” reality series, filmed this season in Washington, D.C.

“We saw a few gaps in the President’s airtime schedule,” said White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs. “Joining the Real World D.C. cast seemed like the best way to ensure uninterrupted, wall-to-wall television coverage.”

Soon after the president arrived at the Real World house, nearby residents said they overheard some cast members talking about “roommate issues.”

“One night,” said a neighbor, “one of the girls confronted Barack about eating their fridge leftovers. Barack said something about how he’d keep taking their food as long as they kept turning the thermostat up so high, and that in any case she’d used all his Grey Poupon. And then Barack complained she and the other roomates hadn’t bought health insurance.”

Another local resident said the house meetings get particularly raucous.

“One afternoon, we heard Barack say one of his roommates acted stupidly,” said the observer. “The roommate said Barack didn’t know all the facts, and called him a liar. There was an apology, but the fighting went on into the evening anyway, with Barack screaming something about how his roommates’ concerns grew out of bogus claims spread by those whose only agenda was to kill his ideas at any cost.”

Then, said the observer, “It sounded like Obama called Michelle and started to cry.”
