Speaking at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner over the weekend, comedian Wanda Sykes ripped President Barack Obama about his basketball playing:
I must say Mr. President that I thought that, you know, when you got into office that you would put a swift end to your basketball pickup playing, you know … pickup basketball playing, you know? I mean, c’mon, first black president, playing basketball. That’s one step forward, two steps back! And, and really. Are you any good? I betcha you think your game is really nice right now, don’t you? Yeah! You really do got good moves, huh? I mean, c’mon! Nobody’s gonna give the president a hard foul with the Secret Service standing there! He’s probably braggin’ and everything. “You shoulda seen me today baby, I was ballin’!” You know. Hmm. Yeah. They just strokin’ your ego. Like, “Ooh Mr. President you really shook me that time! Ya know. I thought you was goin’ this way, and then I saw Secret Service do this so I went that way. Right to the hole sir, right to the hole. But that’s the thing about you sir, you’re so likeable because you’re so accessible.
