In a recent interview with notorious hardballers Entertainment Tonight, President Barack Obama reaffirmed his bromance with Hollywood star George Clooney.
"George is a wonderful guy," the Leader of the Free World said in the official statement.
Clooney has been known to visit the White House on occasion. His relationship with the President began when Mr. Obama was a senator in Chicago, young and naive, looking for love in a cynical world.
When pushed on the issue of whether the two consummate their relationship via cell phone calls, Mr. Obama stated: "[Mr. Clooney is] very protective about not bothering me. And he's also sensitive to the fact that if he's around a lot, then somehow it'll be tagged as 'Obama hanging out with Hollywood stars,' and that's not who he is." In an era of uncertainty and constant threat, its comforting to know that someone is looking after the President. Because no one else is right?
The First Lady, Michelle Obama, was also present at the interview, and twice made it known that she thought Mr. Clooney was "cute." How this will effect both diplomatic and romantic relations between Mr. Obama and Mr. Clooney is unknown.
While Democratic strategists have denied a last minute Obama-Clooney ticket, anonymous sources have confirmed that the two are "besties" and may buy matching Go-Karts sometime this weekend.
