Michelle Obama Had No Idea What a Wii U Was (But It's OK, Some Kid Told Her)

You’d think being the First Lady of the United States would mean you’re on top of things, but not even the most powerful household on Earth is up to speed on everything.

Take Nintendo’s new Wii U, for example. Because it’s got kinda the same name as its predecessor, it’s understandable some people are a little unclear on what’s new or different about it. Michelle Obama is no different, as at a White House Christmas lunch for military families earlier today she started asking kids what they wanted for Christmas.

Among the iPods and mobile phones was a kid who wanted a Wii U. The First Lady had no idea what it was, or how it was different than the Wii (which the Obamas own), but boy, the kid sure did. Then gave Mrs. Obama the full rundown, doing a pretty great job of describing things given the pressure. Nintendo of America, hire this boy!

The video above was uploaded by Charlie Spiering, from the Washington Examiner.
