David Cross confesses to snorting cocaine near Obama

   Feb 21, 4:51 pm

New York, Feb 21 (ANI): David Cross has revealed that he snorted cocaine while President Obama was sitting just a few feet away at a White House Correspondents' Dinner in 2009.

The 47-year-old comedian had admitted it before, but in a new interview with Playboy magazine, he divulges all the dirty details.

"It wasn't even that much cocaine. It was literally the size of, I don't know, a tick," the New York Daily News quoted Cross as telling the publication.

"I ducked under the table and did it. It wasn't like I got high. The jolt was similar to licking an empty espresso cup.

"It wasn't about that. 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.

The 'Arrested Development' star has told the story before, but audiences at his standup shows were never quite sure if it was just part of the act.

According to the Politico, Cross told the crowd at a Washington performance in 2009, that the feat was part of an ongoing challenge between him and a friend in which they try to top each other with "dares and outrageousness." (ANI)
