Making jokes about the Kardashians and interracial love is usually the job of Camron, Vado and the rest of the Dipset crew. But this weekend, the jokes made their way into a different scene as one controversial Obama impersonator performed in front of top level Republicans.
The salacious comments from Obama impersonator and comedian, Reggie Brown, were met with an uncomfortable silence from the audience in Louisiana for the Republican Leadership Conference. As part of his routine, Brown said:
“My mother loved a black man, and no, she was not a Kardashian …”
The comment, along with several other insulting jokes about the sitting President and several of the Republican frontrunners aiming to capture the office in 2012, got Brown yanked off the stage before the end of his routine.
Known for his impression of the President, Brown took the stage an began his routine with a birther joke; which apparently some folks still find hilarious even after months of rumors surrounding President Obama’s place of birth.
Brown also joked about rumors of the president’s birthplace. Obama was born in Hawaii, “or as the tea partyers call it, Kenya,” he said.
Brown highlighted photographs of past presidents such as George W. Bush at the beginning and end of their terms. He showed a picture of George Washington at the start of his term and then projected an image of former first lady Barbara Bush as though it was the nation’s first president as he left office.
Brown then projected a picture of Obama at the start of his term, followed by a picture of Fred Sanford of “Sanford and Son” as a representation of what Obama would look like when he leaves office.
Ironically, Brown’s routine came just one day after Mississippi Governor and popular Republican Harley Barbour warned Republicans not to lose their focus by getting sidetracked with other issues.
So, I guess we can all assume that warning went in one ear and out the other.
What do you think of Brown’s Obama impression for the GOP? Did he take it too far? Should the Republicans have allowed him to perform at all? Tell us what you think Clutchettes and gents!
