Gaffe-tastic: Obama calls Hillary one of the best ‘Secretary of States’

Grammar is hard, for The Smartest Man Alive ™.

I see via @luciannelinks‘ that Obama apparently said “finest secretary of states.” on 60 Minutes. #smartestpreezydontneednogrammar

That’s right. During last night’s lovefest on “60 Minutes,” President Obama said that Hillary Clinton will “go down as one of the finest Secretary of States we’ve had.”

Secretary of States.

Twitter users point out a little something to the president.

.@barackobama Hate to break the news to you, Skippy. But it is “Secretaries of State”, NOT “Secretary of States”. #clinton @foxandfriends

“Secretary of States”, Barack? #cmonman #englishisntthathard

The president just said Hillary will “go down as 1 of the finest Secretary of States” ever – not Secretaries of State. Brilliant. #60Minutes

Where are members of the media, desperate to breathlessly point out this gaffe over and over?

“…secretary of states …” If Bush had said that, the derisive laughter of the press would never end.

Bingo. Instead, some lapdogs covered for Obama, and tried to fix it for him prior to the airing of the interview.

“60 Minutes” still tries to cover.
