President Obama Says He Wants To Be An ESPN Sportscenter Anchor When He Retires

President Barack Obama‘s approval rating may be at an all-time low, but that isn’t stopping him from saying sh*t that he knows will piss the people off.

According to Disney‘s executive producer Robert Iger, Obama made an interesting comment during one of their conversations at recent dinner. Disney of course owns ESPN, so this comment may have been more of a suggestion.

“At least I know what I want to do when I retire … host ESPN SportsCenter’s Top 10 list,” Obama told Iger.

This comes according to The Hollywood Reporter:

“If you have any doubt as to how much of a sports junkie Barack Obama is, check in with the entertainment moguls who attended a private briefing with the president Nov. 26 before his speech at Jeffrey Katzenberg’s DreamWorks Animation campus in Glendale (Calif.) …

“The (ESPN) highlights countdown can feature everything from major sports to bull fighting to high school basketball. Other than having a good laugh, Iger apparently didn’t respond.

“‘Everyone had a good giggle,’ says one person who attended.

“The private meeting with Iger featured other moguls, including Disney’s Alan Horn, Fox’s Jim Gianopulos, Sony’s Amy Pascal, and CBS’ Leslie Moonves.”

Well, it looks like we know what we can expect from Obama come 2016. Just imagine him in a conversation with guys like Skip Bayless and Stephen A Smith — now that’s TV gold!
