President Obama on Monday joked about having “unpaid bills” still sitting around his Chicago home, but the admission was left out of an official White House transcript of the event.

The president made the comments at a Democratic National Committee event in Chicago, joking that returning to his house is a bit like opening a “time capsule.”

“Michelle and I and the kids, we left so quickly that there’s still junk on my desk, including some unpaid bills — I think eventually they got paid — but they’re sort of stacked up. And messages, newspapers and all kinds of stuff,” he said.

In the White House’s version of events, Mr. Obama never mentioned bills.

“Michelle and I and the kids, we left so quickly that there’s still junk on my desk, including some — newspapers and all kinds of stuff,” the transcript reads.
