For Obama Impersonator, It's All Business, Nothing Personal

Reggie Brown has gotten a lot of heat following his appearance at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans. Apparently, he bit that hand which fed him. Brown was booed at the conference after turning his jokes on the Republicans:  “[Mitt Romney] might make a great president. Along with his first lady, second lady, third lady,” he remarked.

Brown, better known as the Obama impersonator, was interviewed recently by NewsOne about his relationship with the Republicans (he’s a regular guest on Fox News) and his role as an entertainer.

Although he wouldn’t specifically comment on his own personal politics, it’s clear that Brown considers himself to only be an entertainer, with no loyalties to Republicans or Democrats. Oddly enough, Brown shares a lot of similarities with the President. He is bi-racial, raised by a single mother and hails from Chicago. He ventured into entertainment and comedy after so many people pointed out his resemblance to the then-presidential hopeful.  “I figured I had a window to take advantage of this opportunity. I embraced it, and here I am today,” he told NewsOne.
