President Obama on ABC's SCANDAL: 'Not Something We Want to Be Living Out'

At a Washington DC fundraiser hosted by Scandal scribe Shonda Rhimes and star Kerry Washington last night, President Barack Obama joked about the accuracy of the hit ABC drama series.

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."

Scandal will return for a new season on Thursday, September 25, 9:00-10:00 p.m. on the ABC network.

About the show:

Everyone has secrets... and Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) has dedicated her life to protecting and defending the public images of the nation's elite by keeping those secrets under wraps. Pope's team are at the top of their game when it comes to getting the job done for their clients, but it becomes apparent that these "gladiators in suits" who specialize in fixing the lives of other people, have trouble fixing those closest at hand, their own.

"Scandal" stars Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope, Guillermo Diaz as Huck, Darby Stanchfield as Abby Whelan, Katie Lowes as Quinn Perkins, Tony Goldwyn as President Fitzgerald Grant, Jeff Perry as Cyrus, Bellamy Young as First Lady Mellie Grant, Joshua Malina as David Rosen and Scott Foley as Captain Jake Ballard.

The series was created by Shonda Rhimes. Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers and Mark Wilding are executive producers. "Scandal" is produced by ABC Studios.
