Samuel L. Jackson Tells President Obama to Stop Relating and Be 'Presidential'


The actor slams the president in the October issue of Playboy, telling him to 'be f***ing presidential.'

Film and TV actor Samuel L. Jackson may be a staunch supporter of President Barack Obama but he surely didn't hold back on his criticism of the commander-in-chief in an interview on the October issue of Playboy. When asked about what he thought of the POTUS "or other highly educated Americans consciously drop[ping] gs off the ends of words to sound like Joe Average," the "Django Unchained" star gave an emphatic answer.

"First of all, we know it ain't because of his blackness, so I say stop trying to 'relate.' Be a leader. Be f***ing presidential," said Jackson. "Look, I grew up in a society where I could say 'It ain't' or 'What it be' to my friends. But when I'm out presenting myself to the world as me, who graduated from college, who had family who cared about me, who has a well-read background, I f***ing conjugate."

He then continued with his criticism of the president, saying that although he was pleased when Obama "got a little heated about the kids getting killed in Newtown and about the gun law," he still found the leader a "safe dude." He went on to express frustration on how politicians are "just trying to serve their party and their closed ideals" and not "trying to serve the people" like what they should be doing.

Despite being an avid Twitter user with almost 3 million followers, Jackson sadly pointed out that signing online petitions won't accomplish what street protests can. "You need to have your physical body out there in the streets and let these people - and the rest of the world - know...Things happen when people get out in the street," he argued.
