Skip to comments.Charles Barkley to interview President Obama during All-Star weekend
Posted on 02/15/2014 4:50:54 AM PST by John W
It wouldnt quite be All-Star Weekend without Charles Barkley interviewing President Barack Obama.
The NBA Hall of Famer sat down with Obama as part of TNTs coverage of the big game, which airs Sunday night. Barkley is an analyst for the networks Inside the NBA show and a big reason why the program is the top-rated show in its genre.
Barkleys become known for his real-talk analysis of players, teams and games that have made him a favorite among hoops fans and media members alike. Obama is a big fan of the NBA and a former player himself.
Barkley is on record as a big Obama supporter. Its unclear if his interview will cover topics beyond basketball.

Is there ANYWHERE that doesn’t highlight the Obamas??? ANYWHERE they don’t show up?? God help us.
I recall a couple years back starting the new year there was talk he was going to become less public. Then he seemingly doubled down, on Leno I think within weeks of that rumor.
And we have another 1000 DAyS of the ghetto couple.
I’d rather see Mark Levin interview Obama...
It is 997 days, 1 hour, 58 minutes.
should be about as informative as the O’Reilly interview
It’s the NBA which has slightly more viewers than MSNBC.
Zero was an NBA player? Really? Maybe the writer meant Zero played street basketball but thought he would whore himself.
LOL!! But we will NEVER be rid of these people...NEVER!
Aspen airport shuts down for Michelle Obama
First Lady Michelle Obama apparently halted private-jet traffic at Aspen airport as she landed for a weekend of skiing while President Obama headed to California.
Barkley used to be a republican with conservative leanings until his racially kindred spirit ran for office. Never so such an abrupt about face.
Barkley is a native, (that isn’t racist is it?), of my home state of Alabama. He is a nice enough person but he really needs to stick to basketball as his sole interest. On any other subject he pegs the doofus meter. Intellectually he and 0bama are in the same league. Charles needs a teleprompter and a puppet master running the thing.
The whitey,I mean, Winter Olympics!
Only MSNBC could refer to Obama as a former player, as if he played in the NBA. When did Obama ever play organized hoops? He is incapable because actually playing hoops can be all about him.
More Zero worship
:: Obama is a big fan of the NBA and a former player himself. ::
Obamugabe is a former NBA player? I’m betting Todd Johnson actually believes this is the truth.
Clinton fatigue is to Obama fatigue as mumps is to Bubonic Plague.
David Stern says 0bama’s next gig should be as an NBA coach...
BOTH bubonic plagues.
Mark Levin would bite him in the neck.
” Obama is a big fan of the NBA and a former player himself.”
Hoping to catch the percentage of the population dumb enough to believe that which per the last two elections would be.....
Dirty Little Secret the NBA hides:
The NBA All Star Game is a National Black Spring Break,every game banger in the USA will be in New Orleans and just like black -on white violence stats, the crime rate during the All Star Break weekend will SKYROCKET yet be un-reported.
He will likely have a cool appearance and by “cool” I mean that as a positive way. That is a problem the GOP faces in 2016 and beyond because the Dem candidate will have advantages in the pop media circuit and too many people collect information based on exterior factors.
I wonder who’s going to “interview” the idiot for the Daytona 500. I wish FOX would pay him NOT to do an interview.
“Zero was an NBA player?”
He’s too gay for that.
Obama is a big fan of the NBA and a former player himself.
Maybe he will get game MVP. He can put it next to the peace prize on the shelf labeled “things the useful idiots did for me”
Hah, maybe as a water girl.
This is called reversion to the mean. Called comimg back home
Or Michael Wilbonitis. Although he never leaves “home” to begin with.
Hey, We had a hoop in our driveway when I was a kid, so I’m a former player as well. Me and my friends played wiffle ball in the street, so I can be mentioned in the same breath as MLB players.
I was a pretty good HS football player back when Fred Biletnikoff was a great wide receiver for the Raiders, so I can say “when I played football Fred Biletnikoff was winning superbowls”.
Why? What a waste of time and money just to hear more lies and BS.
Obama thinks people like him and wish him well
Maybe Todd believes there is no difference between an NBA player and a chooming high school back bencher like Barry Obama
“This is called reversion to the mean. Called comimg back home”
Expect to see a few high fives and fist bumps.
Barkley is about as much a “conservative” as is Colin Powell. Some quotes...
Barkley: “Every time I hear the word ‘conservative,’ it makes me sick to my stomach, because they’re really just fake Christians, as I call them. That’s all they are. ... I think they want to be judge and jury. Like, I’m for gay marriage. It’s none of my business if gay people want to get married. I’m pro-choice. And I think these Christians, first of all, they’re not supposed to judge other people. But they’re the most hypocritical judge of people we have in the country. They act like they’re Christians. They’re not forgiving at all.”
At least Charles Barkley earned his millions in the dreaded private sector. Unlike Jug Ears and Moochie who have been eternally sucking off the taxpayers and liberal universities. Though I must admit that Jug Ears has made some millions off his Bill Ayers authored books which were private sector efforts
Nope. Worse than the Clintons. One would have to squirt Chemo therapy drugs on them to be rid of this cancer.
I suspect soon Obama will be CGI into classics movies like “Maltese Falcon”.
Bet Charles could beat him in golf too.
A friend of mine went to HS with Obama. He said Obama was in the yearbook but he never recalled meeting him or seeing him play basketball or any other sport (my friend played football).
If he means ‘NBA player’, he’s just playing to the low-info crowd, who will believe him. I can imagine bloggers and DU calling him a former NBA player henceforth.
If he means ‘has had pickup games with friends’, that would be ongoing and there’s no reason to modify it with ‘former’.
Or maybe the author is just a bad writer.
The author, Todd Johnson, no doubt has an Affirmative Action degree from a prestigious university.
Will Obama wear a $12,000 dress for the interview?
Under his suit, yes.
