David Cross once again tells the March issue of Playboy about the time he did coke at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in 2009 in the same room as President Barack Obama and his Secret Service agents. This time in more detail.
“It was a tiny granule of coke that I put on my wrist and said, ‘Watch this. I need a witness.’ And then I ducked under the table and did it,” Cross said. “It wasn’t like I got high. The jolt was similar to licking an empty espresso cup.”
Cross, who admits to experimenting with a wide range of drugs, including crack cocaine, said his goal at the 2009 event was not to get high.
“It was just about being able to say that I did it, that I did cocaine in the same room as the president,” he said. “I’m not proud of it, nor am I ashamed of it.” Fox News
Cross says his only regret was getting his girlfriend, Amber Tamblyn, “in trouble by association” and making it so that she’ll never be invited to the White House again. Though it could have been worse. He could have asked Obama if he wanted a bump. Take it from me, sharing is caring but asking the president to do coke with you never goes over well.
