One thing you can count on every time President Barack Obama makes publicly-televised remarks during the 11 a.m. ET hour: He interrupts the CBS network broadcast of The Price Is Right, pissing off a lot of game show viewers in the process.
In January 2013 we noticed an awful lot of Price fans hurling expletives at the president after his final first-term press conference interrupted their wheel-spinning enjoyment. And that trend continued today when the president took the podium to deliver remarks on the unfolding Veterans Affairs scandal.
The lesson from these tweets? Either America is in deep trouble, or presidents need to steer clear of the 11 a.m. hour:
If Obama takes up one more minute of my price is right, I'm going to throw the remote at my tv.

Today I continue to dislike Obama as he interrupts my @PriceIsRight again.
