The extraordinary comment – most mainstream media outlets decline to print such a word – came at the end of an interview with ‘Rolling Stone‘ when Obama was asked one of the softest softball questions ever lobbed at him.
As he left the Oval Office, Eric Bates, executive editor of ‘Rolling Stone’, told Obama that he had asked his six-year-old if there was anything she wanted him to say to the president and she had responded: ‘Tell him: You can do it.’
According to Bates, Obama grinned and said: ‘You know, kids have good instincts. They look at the other guy and say, “Well, that’s a bullshitter, I can tell.”‘
