Barack Obama’s relationship with David Cameron appears to be getting rather cozy these days.
Talking to The Mail On Sunday, The U.K. prime minister revealed that Obama sometimes calls him “bro” and that their relationship is stronger than ever.
“Yes, he sometimes calls me bro. The President has said the special relationship is stronger than it has ever been privately and in public and I agree.”
Obama addressing Cameron as a “bro” is certainly an improvement over “Yo, Blair,” which is how George W. Bush used to greet Tony Blair, but is it actually a term of endearment? It appears that Barack Obama would do well to look at what ‘bro’ actually means.
So, either Obama is either using the term in an affectionate, man crush kind of way, or he’s labeling Cameron a beer swilling party animal who likes to emulate black rap culture.
If history is any indication, it looks like the relationship is becoming even more special. Obama has always appeared to enjoy Cameron’s company, even if it’s sometimes got him into trouble, as it did when the pair snapped a selfie at Nelson Mandela’s funeral.
