President Barack Obama needs to brush up on his TV sitcom knowledge.
While meeting with people in New Orleans on the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the president met a woman named Wheezy, and although he recognized her name from a classic situation comedy about African-Americans, he got the name of the show wrong.
“Wheezy, like in ‘Sanford and Son’?” he asked.
The woman corrected him, saying the Wheezy character was from “The Jeffersons.”
“No, no, no, wasn’t it ‘Sanford and Son’?” he asked again.
But he quickly realized his mistake and joined her in singing a line from the show’s famous theme song, “Movin’ On Up.”
The president previously sang Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” at a fundraiser in Harlem’s historic Apollo Theater in 2012 and “Amazing Grace” at a eulogy for victims of the Charleston church massacre earlier this year.
Maybe he’s considering a recording career after he leaves office.
