The Hunger Games movie has made the jump into pop culture, making its presence felt all the way to the White House.
Not only were three of The Hunger Games cast at the Correspondent’s Dinner in Washington, but President Barack Obama decided that the movie’s core message created the perfect opportunity to take a bit of a dig as his rival Mitt Romney and the republic primary approach:
“Still, I guess Governor Romney is feeling pretty good about things because he took a few hours off the other day to see The Hunger Games — some of you have seen it. It’s a movie about people who court wealthy sponsors and then brutally savage each other until only one contestant is left standing. I’m sure this was a really good change of pace for him. I have not seen The Hunger Games; not enough class warfare for me,”
