Everyone’s favorite and lovable British scallywag, Richard Branson is at it again. According to reports, the Virgin tycoon was at the recent White House state dinner honoring British Prime Minister David Cameron and had asked the POTUS a rather peculiar question. One that probably many wouldn’t of asked if given face time with the commander in chief:
“I asked him if I could have a spliff,” businessman and Virgin Group honcho Richard Branson told a crowd gathered at The Atlantic’s Washington offices Thursday.
“But they didn’t have any,” Branson continued, according to a video of the event as he recalled his effort to procure weed the night before at the White House.
A totally normal question I must say. I can just picture the baffled look filled with shock and awe when people overheard what that crazy billionaire blonde-bastard said to the President. Dear God. Though I guess you can’t really blame them guy for asking given Obama’s past. Which at least he was willing to admit, unlike some who at least tried it, but preferred not to inhale and go the whole nine yards. *Cough* Clinton *Cough*. Though I think we can all agree it takes a certain level of ballsy confidence to ask that crowd to what most would consider a normal question right? Let the good times roll I say.
