VIDEO: Bill Maher Gives Obama Impersonator a Do-Over

Reggie Brown gets to finish the Michele Bachmann joke that got him "the hook" at a GOP gathering in New Orleans.


Remember the Obama impersonator who recently had Republicans gathered in New Orleans rolling in the aisles over racial jokes about President Obama, but then was pulled from the stage when he started in on GOP presidential candidates such as Rep. Michele Bachmann?

Well, he was given the chance to finish his comedy routine last Friday on HBO's Real Time With Bill Maher, making it clear that he wasn't just there to make a laughingstock of our president. What do you think: Did he redeem himself, or was poking fun at the president's racial background on Republicans' dime inexcusable?
