Well, this is something we didn't know about the President. Although one might've though that Barack Obama was the picture of academic perfection in his younger days, the opposite seems to be true. Michelle Obama told The Real on Tuesday that her husband was, in fact, a bum in high school. Her words, not ours.

When asked who got better grades in high school, FLOTUS smugly pointed to herself to much applause. "It's not even close," she explained. "Barack fooled around in high school. He said it, he didn't take school seriously in high school, he barely got his work done. He was a bum." Obama went on to explain that by the time the President transferred from Occidental College to Columbia College during his sophomore year, he decided to get his act together.

"It's never too late. The President of the United States screwed around in high school, and he still got his act together. He did OK," she laughed. We'd say he did a little more than OK. Watch the full interview above.
