First Lady Gets Braley's Name Right - But, Calls Barack 'Bo,' 'Never' Gets Kids' Names Right

Back in Iowa last night to campaign for U.S. Senate candidate Bruce Braley, First Lady Michelle Obama attempted to make up for flubbing his name - not once, but several times - at an event earlier this month.

After taking the stage, she had to pause and collect herself, probably to avoid saying his name incorrectly, again.

"Let me say that one more time... Bruce BRALEY."

Not Bruce Bailey? You're sure?

"Now, some of you may remember the last time I was here," she alluded. "No, I got it wrong, a couple of times..."

Seven times, actually, not that anyone besides everyone on social media and broadcast television was counting.

The First Lady joked about how she rarely gets her daughters' names right, and how she often calls her husband Barack Obama by their dog's name, Bo:

"Talk to Malia and Sasha - I never call them the right names. It's like, 'Who are you?' I call Barack 'Bo.' It never works out well."

You don't say.
