Well, this is a little disturbing: It turns out that Chinese television viewers may think Scandal is a true reflection of the president and first lady and Washington in general. But first lady Michelle Obama, who’s in China and also loves Scandal, put them straight.

The first lady, who’s been in China since last week, is on a goodwill and cultural exchange visit with her daughters and mother, promoting education and seeing the sights.
