Bradley Cooper has always struck The Curmudgeon as a decent guy – maybe it’s because he’s from the Philadelphia area and still spends a lot of time here and roots for all the right teams, The Curmudgeon can be a real sucker for that – but you have to wonder was going through his mind when he went on national television and told the First Lady that he wasn’t wearing any underwear when he visited her in her house.
While Michelle Obama was a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week Cooper showed up, unscheduled and unannounced, and during his brief appearance revealed that while attending a state dinner at the White House a few years ago did so sans underpants.
What was he thinking? Did he think he was being cute? Funny? Smart? Did he think it would make him look good to go on national television and tell millions of people what he did?
Regardless of what he was thinking, it’s clear what he was being: a jackass.
