(Newser) – If you feel like you can’t leave your house without hearing about Jessica Simpson’s new baby, perhaps you just need to run for president of the United States. President Obama, appearing on The View today, was given a pop quiz on pop culture—and he revealed that he had no idea Simpson had recently given birth. He did, however, answer correctly when asked which Kardashian was married for just 72 days.

“Kim,” he said, according to USA Today. He explained that he knew because Kim’s former husband Kris Humphries “was a ball player. That's how I know, from watching basketball." The other question he couldn’t answer: “What's the controversial sex book that's on millions of women's bedside tables?” "I'll ask Michelle when I get home," Obama said on 50 Shades of Grey.
