And you Thought you Had Cool Friends…

piolinbarackobama3Barack Obama this week put in a call to Univision Radio’s Eddie “Piolín” Sotelo to let him know he’s hard at work fixing the immigration mess -and that they are now BFF. I’m not going to bother you with details (you can read the full transcript here) but the highlights of the show were definitely the first and last 5 seconds:

1:48 P.M. MST

THE PRESIDENT: Hello.

PIOLIN: Hello.

THE PRESIDENT: Who am I speaking with?

PIOLIN: Piolín.

THE PRESIDENT: Piolín, my friend, this is President Barack Obama.

And, just a few minutes later, at 1:57 P.M. MST:

THE PRESIDENT: All right. Well, thank you so much, Piolín. It’s great to talk to you.

PIOLIN: Mr. President, you know we are close friends and you know that I have your BlackBerry phone number and you have mine.(Laughter.) So keep in touch.
