WASHINGTON President Obama had to do some explaining Tuesday night when he was caught with lipstick on his collar.

I want to thank everybody who s here, said the president as he stood before the crowd. The incredible warmth of the reception -- a sign of the warmth is the lipstick on my collar.

The president then proceeded to point to the crowd.

Jessica - it wasn t Jessica, it was her aunt, where is she? Auntie, right there look at this. (laughter) look at this. I just want everybody to witness. So, I do not want to be in trouble with Michelle. That s why I m calling you out in front of everybody.

Apparently the woman hugged the president as he entered the room, getting lipstick on his shirt.

It happened at a White House event in celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.
