Soap Opera Gives Obama Unusually Sexy Shout-Out

Unlike former President Bill Clinton, who can be easily referenced with blue dresses and cigars, President Barack Obama has a cleaner image. Except not on Thursday’s episode of the ABC soap General Hospital.

During the episode, Tracy Quartermaine, the sharp-tongued character played by actress Jane Elliot, is talking to her husband’s con man son, Ethan, and to a local mobster, Johnny. While discussing the safety of the con man son, Johnny says, “That sounds like a truce.”

To which Tracy snaps, “Right. And I have Barack Obama waiting for me in my hot tub at home.”
