    You know I made history once when both Brando and I won the Academy Award for playing the same role as Don Corleone. It's so hard to be this good looking and famous, if you get my drift, right Bruce?

    President Obama: So...you played the young Don Corleone in "The Godfather II", the same part that Marlon Brando played in "The Godfather"? Well, I guess that's a testament as to how great an actor you are, because you don't look anything like Brando.

    This is a White House tradition to host the honorees for the performing arts Kennedy Center awards. Since it's the performing arts, thus the "performers", since it's a White House tradition, the President congratulates them. No controversy. The man must never sleep because he keeps a very busy schedule, doing ALL his presidential duties...and no, I don't drink Kool Aid.
