Obama Recovers From Gaffe By Singing 'Movin' On Up'

He finally got a piece of the pie.

President Barack Obama committed a pretty big gaffe while walking around New Orleans on Thursday.

Obama, who was in town to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, met a woman named Weezy while walking around New Orleans.

"Weezy? Really? Like, Weezy? Like in 'Sanford & Son?'" Obama said.

Weezy quickly called the president out on his gaffe, noting that Weezy was actually the name of a character on "The Jeffersons." The two then broke out into the show's famous theme song, "Movin' On Up."

Watch a clip of the moment above.
