PASADENA, Calif.-- U.S. President Barack Obama joked a NASA scientist has inspired him to revisit his dreams of sporting a mohawk hairstyle.
Obama said during a Monday phone call to NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory that "Mohawk Guy" -- NASA scientist Bobak Ferdowsi, who became an online celebrity when his hair style was noticed in pictures of scientists working on the Mars rover Curiosity project -- has reawakened his old dreams of sporting the same hair-do, CNN reported Tuesday.
"I, in the past, thought about getting a mohawk myself, but my team keeps on discouraging me," Obama said during the call, which was broadcast on NASA TV.
"And now that he's received marriage proposals and thousands of new Twitter followers, I think that I'm going to go back to my team and see if it makes sense," the president said.
Obama made the phone call to congratulate the scientists on the successful landing of Curiosity on the surface of Mars last week.
"What you've accomplished embodies the American spirit," he said. "Our expectation is that Curiosity is going to be telling us things that we did not know before."
He must be chooming and doing lines of coke again.
.....fit right in with The Village People.....
He’ll have more hairdo flexibility after the election...
Obama the intellectual giant.
He had to make up some childish BS story about wanting a mohawk in order to "relate" to a NASA scientist.
What a loser. What a maroon.
Not only that, but he will start dressing like Idi Amin after the election.
Good grief...Obama has to make everything about himself!! He can’t even let a young NASA scientist take a little pop culture attention from the women without trying to get in on the ‘attention’ action.
Our narcissist prez...( eye roll).
Rush has BORe pegged
with apologies to Ted Knight
Rotflol! They are exactly alike!
