‘Arrested Development’ and ’Mr. Show’ star David Cross tells the March issue of Playboy that he did a small amount of cocaine at the 2009 White House Correspondents’ Dinner. In other words, in the same room as President Barack Obama and the Secret Service.
“It was a tiny granule of coke that I put on my wrist and said, ‘Watch this. I need a witness.’ And then I ducked under the table and did it,” Cross said. “It wasn’t like I got high. The jolt was similar to licking an empty espresso cup.”
“It was just about being able to say that I did it, that I did cocaine in the same room as the president,” he said. “I’m not proud of it, nor am I ashamed of it.”
He’s told this story before and I’m surprised more people haven’t heard it, because it really is no big deal, and you have to expect this kind of thing when you elect Democrats.
