Actor Samuel L. Jackson went on an epic rant against President Obama, in an interview with Playboy magazine, blasting him for ‘dumbing-down’ the way he talks to normal Americans and telling him to be “f*cking presidential.”
Though Jackson backed President Obama’s reelection campaign in 2012, he said he is frustrated about the way he talks, even questioning why he drops the letter ‘g’ from the end of his words, in a bid to sound cool.
Here comes the elitist label — he said President Obama was trying too hard to ‘relate’ to normal folks instead of being true to who he really is. Gee, that sounds like something the teabaggers would say. He said educated men like the president who actively try to speak less correctly encourage mediocrity.
Quite frankly, I am getting really sick of how President Obama is running the show in his second term. He’s fast becoming a lame duck, in every sense of the term. But it’s funny that Samuel L. Jackson should attack the president on trying to sound cool. To what do we attribute his foul-mouth Obama reelection PSA, “Wake the F*ck Up,” based on a book he had previously narrated called ‘Go the F*ck to Sleep’ written by Adam Mansbach?
