Obama told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos this morning that Americans are ready for someone with a “new car smell” in 2016.

Here’s his full quote:

“I think the American people, you know, they’re going to want — you know, that new car smell. You know, their own — they want to drive something off the lot that doesn’t have as much mileage as me,”


Now who could he possibly be talking about?

That would have been the thing to ask, but we’re talking about Stephanopoulos here.

In a word, no.
