Obama Confuses White House For Prison

Patrick Howley Political Reporter

President Barack Obama accidentally compared himself to a prisoner stuck in the White House while speaking at a Beverly Hills fundraiser at filmmaker Tyler Perry’s house Thursday.

“We should be reforming our criminal justice system in such a way that we are not incarcerating nonviolent offenders in ways that renders them incapable of getting a job after they leave office,” Obama said, effectively comparing being in prison to being in office.

“Little slip of the tongue there. Little Freudian slip,” Obama said after making his gaffe. “Tyler is going to give me a job once I leave.”

It is unclear what kind of job Obama will get from Tyler Perry after he leaves office, but it seems within the realm of possibility that Obama might appear in a Perry film.

Obama also attended a swanky Los Angeles fundraiser Thursday afternoon at the home of “Two and A Half Men” producer Chuck Lorre.
