President Obama pokes fun at height differences at DNC dinner

The already fairly tall President Barack Obama joked about feeling little Thursday evening at the Democratic National Committee Fundraising Dinner at the National Museum for Women in the Arts.

During his opening remarks, he told everyone to take a seat, especially Tom McMullen and Dikembe Mutombo, retired professional basketball players. 

“Every time I stand next to them, I look like a little kid,” Obama joked.
Obama, who is 6’1” himself, was dwarfed by the 7’2” Mutombo and McMullen, who also towers above Obama.
