Let Bernie Mac be Bernie Mac

Barack Obama tells Bernie Mac after his comedy routine at a $2,300 per person fundraiser in Chicago: “We can't afford to be divided by religion, or by region or class. Or by gender," Obama said and joked, "That means, by the way, Bernie you got to clean up your act. This is a family affair. I'm just messing with you!”

I can't believe this. These are jokes people. This is comedy.

Everybody is running around apologizing for this or that... or better yet disassociating themselves from statements. Obama is distancing himself from a comedy routine.

This is the stupidest ish I've ever heard. Obama is now denoucing a comedian. LMAO

After the fundraiser a spokesman from the Obama campaign said, “Senator Obama told Bernie Mac that he doesn't condone these statements and believes what was said was inappropriate."

That fundraiser was not 'The Bernie Mac Show". This was Bernie Mac RAW.

Here's the Bernie Mac I know.

The jokes in my opinion were pretty damn funny. If you don't have a sense of humor then I'm sure you won't feel that they were funny.

During the 10-minute introduction, Bernie Mac was heckled and asked to step down from the stage.

Some of the jokes:

#1- "Being a president is tough ‘cause you're not just running the country. You got to run your family too," "Having a black first lady is different. You're still going have to do the dishes and the laundry and all that …you got to pick up the kids. You didn't pick up the kids? I just came from Korea, talking about nuclear weapons. You were on Air Force One and you couldn't stop to pick up the kids?"

#2- “People like rumors. They are going to say things like, you know, you was in the club with Lil’ Kim and you and Kanye West got in a fist fight.”

#3- "My little nephew came to me and he said, 'Uncle, what's the difference between a hypothetical question and a realistic question?"' "I said, I don't know, but I said, 'Go upstairs and ask your mother if she'd make love to the mailman for $50,000."'
"Hypothetically speaking, we should have $100,000. But realistically speaking we live with two hos,"

That's some funny ish.

Now just because you paid $2,300, that does not mean you can't be offended. Your stupid azz shouldn't have paid that much money if you couldn't afford to laugh.

One last thing: Why didn't they invite Wayne Brady instead?
