Watch: Jamie Foxx Explains Why He Thinks Barack Obama Has Been High While President

As regular readers might have figured out, we'll take any reason for a celebration around here, and the birthday of comedian Jamie Foxx is no exception. While pausing to reflect on Foxx's career, we remembered his November 2010 appearance on Lopez Tonight when Foxx gave us reason to consider if perhaps the President of the United States was high while in office.
