Barack Obama

New York, January 20 (ANI): Comedian Chris Rock, well known for his political commentary, admits that Barack Obama is one person he is having a lot of trouble making fun of.
He’’s just one of those guys, you know, like Will Smith. There’’s no Will Smith jokes. There’’s no Brad Pitt jokes. You know, what are you going to say? Ooh, you used to have sex with Jennifer Aniston. Now you have sex with Angelina Jolie. You”re such a loser. What do you say? Ooh, your movies are big. You make $20 million. There’’s nothing to say about Brad Pitt, the New York Daily News quoted him as telling CNN.
When asked why Obama was like that, he replied: It’’s like Ooh, you”re young and virile and you”ve got a beautiful wife and kids. You”re the first African-American president. You know, what do you say?
Rock, however, believed that a time will come when he will start finding it easy to make jokes about Obama.
Of course, as time goes on. At some point he’’s going to — there’’s always slip-ups. No one can survive that level of scrutiny without occasionally making it easy for a comedian, he said. (ANI)
