Barack Obama to Letterman: 'I was actually black before the election'

barackobama_davidletterman.jpgBreaking news on "The Late Show with David Letterman" last night: Barack Obama announced that he was actually black before he was elected.

This little bomb was dropped by our nation's 44th President when he stopped by "Letterman" to make a bit of small talk, but more importantly, to discuss his plans for the country and some of the opposition he's facing.

Dave wanted to know, does Obama believe that the controversy surrounding his various political proposals -- namely health care reform -- is a result of racism?

Apparently not.   

Watch the clip below to see the always smooth Barack handle Letterman's queries in a stride, with humor and humility.

Oh, and he's also talking about Sasha and Malia's summer

See for yourself...

So, any thoughts?

Glad to see Letterman visit with the President since Leno got him last spring?

Who's next? Kimmel?

I mean, ABC didn't air "So You Think You Can Dance" during Obama's address a couple weeks ago. Seems only fair to give Jimmy a crack at the Pres too...
