Richard Simmons: The Obamas ‘Have Rejected Me Totally’

Richard Simmons said Wednesday that he wanted to lend a hand to the White House’s campaign to fight childhood obesity, but the first family evidently just isn’t into him.

The forever-jazzed fitness trainer said during an interview on HuffPost Live that he was “rejected” by both President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.

“I love Michelle Obama. I wanted to meet them, both of them. They have rejected me totally,” Simmons said.


“I’m just not their set of sheets,” he said.
