President Barack Obama apparently wanted to change the channel on the television before delivering his State of the Union address on Tuesday night.
According to a tweet posted by NBC reporter Luke Russert, he wanted to watch ESPN, which was carrying the Michigan State-Iowa men’s basketball game.
Obama’s staff advised him to pay attention to what was happening on C-Span.
