CNS: “Santa Claus is fat and he smokes a pipe. That presented an uh-oh moment Monday, as First Lady Michelle Obama and TV/radio host Ryan Seacrest read “The Night Before Christmas” to a group of children at a Washington, D.C. hospital.”
“Mrs. Obama told the children, “Well, we have a story to tell you — a story about Christmas night and this guy named –”
“Old St. Nick,” Seacrest joined in…
Then it was Mrs. Obama’s turn: “‘The stump of a pipe’ — I think St. Nick gave up smoking,” she interjected. (Laughter.) “This was a long time back,” she explained to the kids.”
It’s always politics.
