image for Obama Admits He's An Actor, Says Run For President 'Just A Joke'
Call Me Charlie

Chicago Il - Barack Obama stunned the world today during a shocking interview with 'Meet The Depressed' on NBC. Mr. Obama said he is really an actor named Charlie Watts.

His run for the presidency, he explained, was just a 'mockumentary' in the style of Sacha Baron Cohen. Feeling it was all getting 'a little out of control,' he wanted to tell everyone before he fell into more trouble.

Mr. Watts said it all began two years ago after he watched Baron Cohen's film "Borat". Mr. Watts says he dreamed up the name 'Barack Hussein Obama' because it "sounded totally un-American so everyone would know it's a spoof." He never expected things to go as far as they did.

He was going to tell everyone last January after he won the Iowa caucus but was "just too hyped-up about it all and wanted to see how far the gag could go."

Charlie Watts says Michelle Obama is, of course, an actress too. Her real name is Rochelle Goons and she's performed lots of work on daytime soap operas. "Rochelle always played angry black women on the soaps. A lot of people recognised her work. She was really into her part too."

Charlie assumes Hillary Clinton will take over the presidential bid and wishes her well. He's sorry if anyone is disappointed with him.

Charlie also wanted everyone to know his mockumentary "A Black Man Runs For President" will debut on January 20 no matter who wins the office.
