CINCINNATI – At a town hall event in Cincinnati, Ohio, President Barack Obama fielded many questions related to jobs from small business owners. One audience member, barber Tony White, had a different question for Obama.
“When can I cut your hair?” White asked to applause and laughter from those in attendance.
“You would not want a president who was disloyal to his barber,” Obama answered to additional laughs. “I mean, a man and his barber…that’s a strong connection.”
Obama declined to let White cut his hair but added: “Maybe I’ll let you give me a line, a little bit.”
The president then proceeded to answer White’s more serious inquiry on his policy towards businesses with less than ten employees.
