Quoted: Don Cheadle on wishing Obama was more ‘gangster’

(Jason Kempin/Getty Images)

“I wasn’t talking about pants sagging and forties and ‘hoes’ or any of that other nonsense and I find it hard to believe that that is what some people thought I was saying.”

Don Cheadle sort of apologizing for but largely defending an interview in JET magazine where he said he wished President Obama was more “gangster.” All he meant, the actor wrote, was “a desire to see our president riding roughshod over his adversaries to get the job done for the least represented amongst us.” Oh, and “smacking up John Boehner in a public forum.”
