During the group meeting, Obama used a discussion of the economy as a segue to bring up “Up in the Air.” Later, when they met one-on-one, he told her, “I hope I didn’t embarrass you earlier.” Her response: “Yeah, you’re such an asshole.” Kendrick was clearly mortified, but appears to have recovered gracefully.

“Thinking about my conversation with the Secret Service agent, I said, ‘Yes,
