“You know, I did see The Butler, and I did tear up. I teared up just thinking about not just the butlers who have worked here in the White House, but an entire generation of people who were talented and skilled, but because of Jim Crow, because of discrimination, there was only so far they could go. And yet, with dignity and tenacity, they got up and worked every single day, and put up with a whole lot of mess because they hoped for something better for their kids.”
Who said the President of the United States doesn’t enjoy life’s guilty pleasures such as going to the movies? President Obama recently shared his thoughts about “The Butler” with radio legend Tom Joyner. “The Butler” stars Oprah Winfrey, Forest Whitaker, Cuba Gooding Jr.and other notable celebs.
“All of the acting was terrific, and I thought Forest Whitaker was wonderful. And Oprah, my girl, she can act. She’s just a wonderful actress.”
“The Butler” was loosely inspired by the story of former White House butler Eugene Allen. The movie scored the No. 1 spot when it debuted a few weeks.
Check out the interview below to hear Obama talk about Martin Luther King, Obama Care and “The Butler.”
