Kevin Hart Reveals He’s ‘Friends’ with the Obamas

We can never tell if Kevin Hart is kidding or not, but he seemed pretty serious when he chatted it up with WaPo’s Helena Andrews last week during his “Local Run with Hart,” a 5K, sponsored by Nike + Run Club, along with Potomac River in Georgetown. The funnyman revealed in his five minute chat that he’s “friends” with the Obamas.

“Yes, friends. The president called me by my first name once — ‘Hey Kev.’ That was a big day. More importantly when the time permits I’m a phone call away,” he said.

Although Michelle Obama, who we all know loves her fitness, wasn’t at his 5K, Kevin said he knows why.

“You’re know, they’re off, and they’re busy. Everything happens when it’s supposed to. I was a supporter of their campaign. I’m a friend of the first family.”

Well, if you let him tell it…
