Co-anchor George Stephanopoulos compared Mrs. Obama’s appearance at the Oscars, Sunday, to the real mission in the movie Argo: Rescuing American hostages from Iran. He thrilled over the secretive appearance: “Producers go undercover to the White House in a move straight out of Argo.” Elizabeth Vargas echoed, “It was like something out of Argo.” The hostages in Iran faced death, not the revelation of a TV appearance.
The MSM loves to compare President Obama to the movie The American President, and now FLOTUS has her movie: Argo. Because broadcasting a video feed live from Washington, DC to Hollywood is just like rescuing a half dozen people from certain death in Iran during the Islamic revolution.
