According to White House pool reports, the President is quoted as saying, "No offense - Scandal is a great show, but it's not something that we necessarily want to be living out day in, day out."
Later in his speech, Obama went on to praise Washington for her campaigning efforts during the last presidential election, commenting "there were few people who worked harder."
