And now, presenting President Obama’s State of the Union address as seen through the eyes of New England Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco.
I can’t go to sleep what time is the State of the Union Address?
A notoriously early riser who tweets about being the first customer each morning in the IHop parking lot in his Prius, Ochocinco (and the Patriots) had a day off before preparing for Super Bowl XLVI, which explains why he was up late and channel sufing.
Not being rude but if they stand up and clap on every statement Obama says this could go on well over 3 hours.
Anybody notice the guy over Obamas left shoulder doesn’t seem very happy and he’s not smiling. He’s not clapping with joy
Told that this is John Boehner, speaker of the House of Representatives, Ochocinco inquires if Boehner “has a Twitter.”
@SpeakerBoehner Just read some of your tweets and you seem pretty angry kind sir. I can see you on tv but you’re not smiling. Hope you’re ok
By Wednesday morning, Ochocinco had tangible proof of a responsive government in action, with a tweet from his new BFF:
Not that Boehner was going to have the last word.
@SpeakerBoehner Hello Mr. Boehner, hoping you are in better spirits today. If all else seems bad in life just remember I love you kind sir.
Scratch that. Evidently, this is like one of those phone conversations in which neither party wants to be the first to hang up.
