Obama "Still Looking For Right Way" to Ask Clinton to Leave White House

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) -- It seemed like a good idea at the time.

But twenty-four hours after former President Bill Clinton appeared at the White House to endorse his tax plan, President Barack Obama is "still looking for the right way to ask him to leave," an aide confirmed today.

Mr. Obama had assumed that once the former president wrapped things up with reporters yesterday, he would say his goodbyes and depart in a waiting car, "but that kind of didn't happen," the aide said.

"Clinton kind of went, 'Do you have a computer I can use? I just want to check my email,' and then kind of made himself at home in the Oval Office," he said. "The president was being polite and all, but you could tell he was kind of pissed."

After spending the better part of two hours surfing the Internet and watching YouTube videos, the former president announced, "Am I the only one around here who's hungry? Let's send [Press Secretary Robert] Gibbs on a Pizza Hut run."

The aide said that Mr. Obama decided to play "a waiting game" with Mr. Clinton, but after spending the night "crashing in the Lincoln Bedroom," the former president was back in the Oval Office, chatting away on the phone.

"He could be there for awhile," the aide said. "He's talking to Bernie Sanders." More here.
