The Obamas are different from you and me
I think F Scott Fitzgerald would recognize these people:
In fact, the perks extend to something far more exclusive and unattainable for your everyday American: The Obamas get to watch the third season of “Downton Abbey” before the rest of the country does.
Michelle Obama is so enamored with the series that she just couldn’t wait until it airs in the U.S. in January and “begged” british TV channel ITV to get the third season’s episodes early, UK’s The Telegraph reports. Ask and ye shall receive — if you’re the first lady.
“We’d heard the Obamas liked to watch it but we were very surprised when someone from the [sic] First Lady’s office got in touch asking for the series,” ITV said in a statement to The Sun. “They were very polite and we were more than happy to sort out some DVDs to send over.”
I bet she didn’t even have to trade a bust of Winston Churchill for them.
