Homeland star Damian Lewis told a British talk show he sent a Muslim joke to president Barack Obama.
During an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show Saturday night, the Emmy-winning actor says the president wanted a signed DVD box set of the Showtime hit to give to the Teamsters labor union (the president has previously revealed Homeland is his favorite show). Lewis says co-star Claire Danes wrote something along the lines of, I was a fan of yours long before you were a fan of ours. But when it was the British-born Lewis turn, the actor says he jokingly wrote: From one Muslim to another.

It doesn’t matter now.
Ooooh..! Now THAT is going to leave a mark..!
To be FUNNY, the jibe must contain a kernel (or much more) of the truth.
And it is funny, and it DOES.
Oh, c’mon, this was obviously intended as a joke at the expense of the so-called birthers and not at dear leader’s
It's been PROVEN that president Obama is a practicing Christian.
I was told this fact from ABC News.
Well, it's a better gift than an iPod with some of his speeches on it.
Oh that sucks. I liked him in Band of Brothers, and the ironically short-lived series “Life”. Oh well. Another light-headed/liberal actor off my watch list.
Much truth to the statement “I go into the oval office and pretend I am going to work.”
As a how-to guide?
LOL, I was thinking, “what would a labor union want with that?
Time for a new campaign of billboards: “Where’s the baptismal certificate?”
He could have written the show’s plot.
That’s just taqiy(ya).
His baptismal certificate is in the same box with his selective service records, birth certificate, passport records, social security NUMBERS, college transcripts, college finance records and who knows what else....the most transparant presidency in history....if you have x-ray vision
From one maniacal murdering moslem moron to another.
“Did Mr. Lewis just cost himself another Emmy?”
I wouldn’t be surprised if it costs him his entire career. obama has no sense of humor. You have to have humility in order to have sense of humor. When he makes jokes, they are usually terrible, and people on laugh beacuse they are expected to.
Didn't know it was the job of a sitting President to solicit free gifts to give to their political friends.
I was thinking about this last night. Why would someone - one who actually lives the stress of this as part of their actual job - show any interest whatsoever in some make-believe show about something that person is actually supposed to be involved in. Then it hit me. The reason Obama likes the show is because he isn't involved in these matters from the White House. The only involvement our President has is from what he sees on a TV show.
Claire Danes was once asked what she thought of the President's remarks about watching the show. Without missing a beat, she said something like, "He only watches to see himself in the opening credits."
