Barack Hash-sein Oganja, Nickel-Sack Barack, the Pot-US, OBHOma, Commander in Leaf, and we’re done making weed jokes for now. But maybe President Obama isn’t.
We all know that president Obama has smoked weed in the past, but his weed smoking days are far behind him. That doesn’t mean that he doesn’t get a kick or two out of a good old-fashioned weed joke. On Saturday, he spoke to a large audience of reporters at the Gridiron dinner. And Obama couldn’t help but joke about D.C.’s new weed laws. Part of the president’s talk went like this:
This is my third appearance at this dinner as President. And I predict you will laugh harder than ever. I’m not saying I’m any funnier. I’m saying weed is now legal in D.C. (Laughter and applause.) I know that’s how you guys are getting through this dinner. That’s why you ate the food. (Laughter.)
Of course, just because he made a joke doesn’t mean he’s actually going to do anything to changing federal regulations on the matter. But, in his defense, that would take a lot of work. Oh. Wait. We thought of one more: Errlbama.
