Obama Gives Props To Wife's Pushup Prowess

LOS ANGELES, (UPI) — President Obama conceded to some personal shortcomings in the physical fitness arena during a fundraiser in Los Angeles Wednesday evening.

Speaking to more than 600 supporters from the gay community, Obama said he was put to shame during a recent push-up session in Hawaii with a cadre of U.S. Marines and added that his wife, Michelle, was no slouch at push ups either.

“Michelle outdoes me in push ups as well,” Obama said, recounting the first lady’s appearance on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” in which she knocked out 25.

The president got a laugh out of the audience when he added his other half had taken some ribbing about her technique “because she doesn’t go down all the way.”
