David Cross once took a hit of cocaine while sitting just a few feet away from President Barack Obama.
The Arrested Development star makes this admission in the March issue of Playboy, referring to the 2009 White House Correspondents Dinner and explaining to the magazine:
“I ducked under the table and did it. It wasn’t like I got high. The jolt was similar to licking an empty espresso cup. It wasn't about that. It was just about being able to say that I did it, that I did cocaine in the same room as the President."
The White House Correspondents Dinner is an annual event, hosted by comedians such as Seth Meyers and Stephen Colbert, during which the President lets loose with a joke-laden speech that typically takes aim at opponents such as Donald Trump.
