10 Unprofessional Questions I'd Like to Ask the President

5:16:00 PM

Interviewing the President of the United States is every reporter's dream gig. There's so much you could talk about, but for the sake of professionalism you always stick to the basics.

But what if you got to interview the President outside the realm of the journalistic ethics? What would you ask?

I've put together a list of 10 of the questions I'd never dare to ask but not-so-secretly want to know about the POTUS.

1. When you get a booger or a wedgie, what do you do to get it out without being photographed?

2. What's one silly thing you do that you hope no one ever finds out about?

3. What's your favorite room in the White House? The Oval Office doesn't count.

4. What's the weirdest, craziest thing you're afraid of?

5. What's the craziest thing you've ever done to get a girl's attention?

6. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

7. Who's one celebrity you've been dying to meet?

8. What's the most embarrassing song you could be caught singing along to?

9. What's the biggest law you've ever broken?

10. Which reporter/member of the media do you dislike the most?


Here are some questions some of my coworkers and friends would like answered:
-Mr. President, would you have run the ball against Texas A&M?
-What would you REALLY like to say to your harshest critics?
-Boxers or Briefs? Pepperoni or Cheese? Beach or Mountains?

  1. If you'll allow me to assume the identity of President Obama, dear Ashton, I will answer a few of your questions as he might.

    2. What's one silly thing you do that you hope no one ever finds out about?

    Obama: I'm a Fox News junkie and never miss The O'Reilly Factor. I also just finished taping an episode of Undercover Boss and I'm auditioning for the next season of Celebrity Apprentice.

    3. What's your favorite room in the White House? The Oval Office doesn't count.

    Obama: The indoor basketball court.

    4. What's the weirdest, craziest thing you're afraid of?

    Obama: Falling off a cliff.

    5. What's the craziest thing you've ever done to get a girl's attention?

    Obama: Won back-to-back presidential elections.

    7. Who's one celebrity you've been dying to meet?

    Obama: Sarah Palin...
    No, wait! Donald Trump....
    No, make that Ted Nugent...

    Damn, I give up. I just can't decide!

    9. What's the biggest law you've ever broken?

    Obama: The law of gravity... when I scored the game winning basket in a one-on-one match-up by leaping five feet in the air and performing a spinning reverse slam dunk. Maybe he ate too much White House chili at lunch or maybe he just never learned how to jump, but poor Mittens never had a chance.
