Jimmy Kimmel Challenges Obama On Marijuana Laws

At the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, Kimmel “has one real question” for the President (in attendance), at 21:50 in the video below.

Best quote:

“Mr. President, I hope you don’t think I’m out of line here, but marijuana is something that real people care about. The fact that you believe Speaker Boehner when he tells you he still has control of his party leads me to believe that you must be smoking some crazy great weed yourself.”

      Say what you like about the dubious ethics of reporters partying with the pol whose feet they’re supposed to hold to the fire, but you’ve got to admit the O-man knows how to deal with hecklers:

      Obama:  “Ha ha ha!  But seriously, folks, I’ve got a couple of yuks for y’all, too: Knock knock!”
      [Cups hand behind his ear and turns to hear the audience]

      Audience:  “WHO’S THERE?!!!”

      Obama:  “Warrantless FBI search!  We’ve been following you on Twitter.  Get down on the ground, M*ther F*cker!  I said, “GETDOWNONTHEGROUNDM*THERF*CKER!!!”‘

      [Uncomfortable silence, eventually broken by unintelligible muttering and dark chuckles from a back table]

      Obama:  “What’s that back there, Table 5?  I’m not sure I can make out what you’re saying over all that DRONING.  Not sure I ‘Awlaki’ what I’m hearing!”

      [Pin drops]

      Obama:  “Yeah, that’s what I thought.”

    “What a collection of people we have here in one room: we have members of the media, politicians, corporate executives, advertisers, lobbyists, and celebrities–Everything that is wrong with America is here in this room tonight.”

    “Have you ever smoked weed before?”
    “I never exhaled”

    “The fact that you believe Speaker Boehner when he tells you he still has control of his party leads me to believe that you must be smoking some crazy great weed yourself.” – That’s actually an idiotic quote that doesn’t address the issue at all. All it does is reinforce stereotypes about ‘stupid stoners’, when in fact if Obama lit up every now and then he’d probably be making much better decisions.
