Chicago man to President Obama: Don’t touch my girlfriend
Washington (CNN) — The woman who voted next to the coolest President ever President Barack Obama on Monday says she was “embarrassed and just shocked,” after her fiancé jokingly told him “Mr. President, don’t touch my girlfriend.”
Casting his ballot in Chicago on Monday, Obama stood at a voting booth next to Aia Cooper, whose fiancé, Mike Jones, decided to crack wise with the president, which prompted Obama to reply with “I really wasn’t planning on it,” before adding that Jones was “an example of a brother just embarrassing you for no reason.”
At the poll Monday, Cooper apologized for her boyfriend, telling the President she knew Jones was going to “say something smart,” but she didn’t know what.
At least she would go back home with a good story: Obama joked that she would tell her friends and family, “I can’t believe Mike, he is such a fool.”
“But fortunately, the President was nice about it, so it’s alright,” Obama said, imagining how Cooper would tell the story.
