In the latest issue of Life magazine, featuring Chris on the cover, Rock is asked, "Is this country ready for an African American president?" Rock answered, "It's ready for a retarded president, why wouldn't it be ready for an African American president?" Oh no he didn't!
Rock went on to say that he likes Al Gore, and that he doesn't expect to see a black president in his lifetime.
The comedian, doing publicity for "I Think I Love My Wife," also took the opportunity to quash persistent rumors that his marriage was in trouble. "My marriage is just like everybody else's," Rock said. "Great like everybody else's and whatever like everybody else's. Everything's fine."
