President Barack Obama chose the wrong Brit to distract the press from the scandals currently enveloping his presidency, "The Daily Show"s' John Oliver joked on Tuesday night
The embattled commander in chief was in the hot seat during a joint press conference with U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron earlier this week as the media grilled him about his administration's response to the Benghazi attacks and the IRS' investigation into Tea Party groups.
"Prince Harry is in town...that's the Brit that you want," Oliver said. "Not the pasty MP from West Oxfordshire. I'm talking about the dashing soldier prince."
Oliver cut to an interview with the 76-year old Sen. John McCain commenting that the Royal off-spring was "a very attractive young man."
"Prince Harry just gave that man his first erection since 1983," Oliver said. "That's a fact."
Just imagine how he could have set the White House Press Corp.'s hearts racing.
