‘Mr. President, Don’t Touch My Girlfriend’: Man warns Obama
President Obama proved he has a good sense of humor while voting early in Chicago.
While casting his ballot in Chicago on Monday, President Obama was given an unusual voting instruction.
“Mr. President, don’t touch my girlfriend,” a Chicago man, later identified by CNN as Mike Jones, quipped as he walked by the pair casting their ballots.
“I really wasn’t planning on it,” Obama shot back with a smile.
Jones’s finance, Aia Cooper, flushed with embarrassment and apologized for her boyfriend.
“I am sorry, please excuse him. … I can’t believe Mike, he is such a fool,” she said.
Obama joked Jones was “an example of a brother just embarrassing you for no reason whatsoever” but said the pair would at least have a story for their friends and family.
Obama said to Cooper: “Fortunately, the president was nice about it, so it’s alright.”
“I am freaking out right now,” Cooper said while doubling over with laughter.
In a subsequent interview with WLS-TV, Cooper said the president got back at Jones by planting a hug and a kiss on Cooper.
“On the cheek, just the cheek — please, Michelle, don’t come after me — just the cheek!” Cooper said.
