So if you were in the same room as the president, what would you do?  I know I’d be on my best behavior, in fear of the secret service grabbing me at any given moment.  Comedian David Cross, however, snorts cocaine.

In a new Q&A with Playboy, Cross was asked about the rumors that he had done cocaine at the 2009 White House Correspondents’ Dinner.  Cross, matter of factly, said the rumors were true: 

“It was probably more like 65 feet (from President Obama)…It was literally the size of, I don’t know, a tick. It was a tiny granule of coke that I put on my wrist and said, ‘Watch this. I need a witness.’ “

So why did Cross do it?  No other reason than to say he did:
“It was just about being able to say that I did it, that I did cocaine in the same room as the president.”

Luckily, no secret service men came after the actor and girlfriend, Amber Tamblyn, but Cross knows that because of him, Tamblyn won’t ever be invited again.

“I was her date, her plus-one … she didn’t know I was going to do it.”

So, I think I’ll just stick with the best behavior choice…or maybe I’ll just sneak in some popcorn, like in the movie theaters…yeah, I’ll stick with that…
