GORDON Brown and David Cameron were incredibly embarrassing yesterday.
As Barack Obama seized the White House to become America's darkest president so far, the prime minister and the Tory leader clashed over who he liked best.
Mr Brown said: "Mr Speaker, I've already phoned him. I was one of the first to phone him actually, because, unlike some people, I've got his personal 'cellphone' number.
"Mr Speaker, he said we're going to be totally best friends, 'brothers' if you will, and then he asked me to come to his house for dinner and stay over. And he said Michelle, that's his wife in case you didn't know, thinks that my wife is really, really nice."
The Tory leader said: "Mr Speaker, I'm down with him. We're going to see Herbie Hancock together. Just the two of us. Yes we are. The prime minister can sneer all he wants but we are. And we'll probably grab a beer afterwards and rap about politics and shit."
Bill McKay, professor of public policy at Reading University said: "It's natural for them to want to exploit Obama's success and contextualise it within their own political narrative.
"But the problem is that compared Obama they're really just a couple of arseholes."
Meanwhile, a spokesman for the president-elect said: "Mr Cameron strikes us as the sort of person who would have owned Michelle's great-great grandparents.
"And as for Gordon Brown – we are nothing like him. Nothing. Like him. At all."
He added: "I want to hear you say it."
