A fake President Obama addressed the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans Saturday, courtesy of impersonator Reggie Brown.
Brown cut a close likeness to Obama and generally nailed the president's intonation and diction. Some of his jokes came at the expense of GOP presidential hopefuls, yielding boos from the audience, however.
His jabs at the real President Obama, however, are getting all the attention.
“My favorite month is February, Black history month,” the fake Obama said. “Michelle celebrates the full month, and I celebrate half.”
“My mother loved a black man and no she was not a Kardashian,” he added.
Fake Obama showed a photo of what how aged he will look at the end of his first term and it was a shot of Sanford from the Sanford and Son.
“You're welcome for the thriving economy I helped to create,” he said. “You are welcome for the gift of humility I have given to Anthony Weiner.”
“The truth is we need to build tunnels and bridges, that way people will have something to live under or jump off of,” the Obama double said.
Some of the biggest boos came when the fake Obama said Newt Gingrich's campaign was barely clinging to life.
“His consultants are dropping faster than Anthony Weiner's pants in an AOL chat room,” he said.
Of GOP frontrunner, fake Obama joked that Mormon Mitt Romney will have "a first lady, second lady, and third lady."
He said Tim Pawlenty was out having his “foot surgically removed from his mouth.”
“John King served him up a ball softer than Barney Frank's backside,” he said, referring to Pawlenty's decision not to attack Romney during a CNN debate.
The audience was silent.
Fake Obama began to make fun of Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), but then he was suddenly ushered off stage.
Brown has done his Obama act in political setting before. Last week, he stood in for the president in a fake "debate" against former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, which aired on Fox Business.
