Comedian David Cross Claims he Snorted Coke Under the Table Near Obama at White House Correspondents Dinner

David Cross, the stand-up comic and star of TV shows “Mr. Show” and “Arrested Development”, claims he snorted a very small amount of cocaine in the same banquet room where President Barack Obama and his Secret Service agents were in 2009, reports FOX news. He reportedly did it under the table.

The incident occurred at the White House Press Correspondents’ Dinner, where Cross attended as the “plus one” to his actress girlfriend Amber Tamblyn. FOX sources the March issue of Playboy magazine as the place where Cross, who has told parts of the story elsewhere already, disclosed the whole of the details.

“It was a tiny granule of coke that I put on my wrist and said, ‘Watch this. I need a witness.’ And then I ducked under the table and did it,” said Cross. “It wasn’t like I got high,” he said, likening the effect to the that of “licking an empty espresso cup … It was just about being able to say that I did it, that I did cocaine in the same room as the president,” Cross said. “I’m not proud of it, nor am I ashamed of it.”

He said his only regret was getting Tamblyn effectively blacklisted from White House events. “I was her date, her plus-one, and she got dragged through the mud because of what I did,” he said. “She had nothing to do with it. She didn’t know I was going to do it. And because of that she’ll never be invited to the White House again. That’s not cool.”
