James Flacco: Obama Slips Up on James Franco's Name (Video)

If you were watching President Obama‘s year end press conference, you may have noticed his slip up on James Franco‘s name when talking about the movie The Interview and the Sony hack scandal.

“I think it says something interesting about North Korea that they decided to have the state mount an all-out assault on a movie studio because of a satirical movie starring Seth Rogen and James Flacco,” the president said. “I love Seth and I love James, but the notion that that was a threat to them I think gives you some sense of the kind of regime we’re talking about here.”

We have a feeling that Obama might have been confusing James with the Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco! Watch the video from the press conference below:

    The north korean leader only watches porn, goes around the world having sex with prostitutes while his country lives in a permanent big jail. They only watch him on tv, have no idea what a tv programme is and they have to adore him. I’m not exaggerating at all, there’s even more…

    Aww the poor James. She’s so pretty and antihoe…

    Does Obama seriously have nothing better to talk about?
    He and his family care too much about Hollywood and their celebrities. Please go fix the health care system, the economy, creates jobs rather then hanging around the wealthy and elite. He bashes Republicans for being wealthy, but thats nothing compared to the obscene amount of money his celeb pals like Clooney, Beyonce, Jay-Z, Speilberg all have. I don’t see people like Beyonce or Jay helping the poor or contributing anything of value to society.

    Poor James Flake-o.

    Kim Jong-un hates him and Obama can’t say his name.

    Of course who cares? If I was James, I wouldn’t.

    This isn’t about Hollywood anymore, this has quickly become a political issue. This is about terrorist threats and freedom of speech. You seem to be the one caring too much about Hollywood, what with all the name dropping you just did. P.S Jay-Z & Beyonce do donate to charity, do your research.
