President Obama Does Not R-S-P-E-C-T Aretha Franklin, Misspells Song Name

by at .  Updated at . Comments

President Obama established this week, when he misspelled the name of Aretha Franklin's hit song R-E-S-P-E-C-T, that A-B-C is not as easy as 1-2-3 after all.

At the Women of Soul concert series, which is being hosted at the White House, the P-O-T-U-S spoke of the impact of artists on the fight for equality.

However, when Obama went to quote Aretha Franklin’s famous song "Respect," during which she spells out the word so memorably, he left out one letter.

Watch the Commander-in-Chief's bungled speech below ...

“When Aretha [Franklin] first told us what R-S-P-E-C-T meant to her, she had no idea it would become a rallying cry for African Americans," said Obama.

"And women ... and then everyone who felt marginalized because of what they looked like or who they loved. They wanted some respect,” he went on.

A good message by the Prez. Clearly, he meant no disrspect.

Somewhere, John Travolta and Adele Dazeem are smiling.
