ap.org/ ‘Girlfriend’ crack makes Obama voting all laughs

SHARE

SHAFAQNA – Democrats say stay away from red states. Vladimir Putinsays mitts off Ukraine. But “don’t touch my girlfriend?” Not the usual admonition heard by President Barack Obama. Let’s be clear: It was a joke. It unfolded while Obama cast an early ballot Monday in Chicago. A young woman, Aia (A-ya) Cooper, was voting next to Obama when her boyfriend, Mike Jones, decided to crack wise: “Mr. President, don’t touch my girlfriend.”

Obama, laughing, replied: “There’s an example of a brother just embarrassing me for no reason.” Cooper apologized. But Obama imagined how she would retell the encounter: “I can’t believe Mike, he is such a fool. I was just mortified…But fortunately, the president was nice about it, so it’s all right.” Obama gave her a smooch. “Give him something to talk about.”
