WASHINGTON, D.C. - President Barack Obama, who has remarked that he watched American Idol along with his wife and daughters Malia and Sasha revealed that he voted for Adam Lambert.
He smiled and stated that his wife planned on voting for Kris Allen, but when she saw Lambert sing Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" she quickly changed her mind.
The president added that Malia and Sasha were both pulling for Chris. The two girls wanted to vote, but they couldn't since they are underage and their Mom would not let them use her cell phone.
The president added that the two had been put on restriction since the night before they had violated their bedtime curfew by being up until 2 a.m.
The girls had been playing Trivia Pursuit with one of the maids and two of the secret service agents. Malia won. Sasha came in fifth.
Regarding the use of cell phones, Michelle said that the girls ages 10 and 7 are too young to be fooling around with cell phones.
She said that her and her husband have some very strict rules and guidelines when it comes to cell phone use, microwave use, Etch-A-Sketch use, and ginsu knives use.
She said that the first week that they were in the White House she caught little Malia playing with the pretty 'red phone' in the presidential office.
Malia said she was only trying to talk to her best friend Clarissa who lives in Winnetka, Illinois.
Mrs. Obama remarked that luckily the Brigadier General who answered the phone instantly recognized Malia's voice and he told her to please put her mommy or her daddy on the line immediately if not sooner.
Malia told him that her mommy and daddy were both busy watching American Idol. He told her that it was an order from a Brigadier General of the United States Army and that she would need to comply with his instructions and do so immediatley.
Malia wasn't the least bit phased. She just laughed and replied, "Speaking of orders, why don't you get in you pretty Army jeep Mr. Brigadoon and go and get me and my little sister some McDonald's Happy Meals. My daddy will pay you when you get here."
