    The 86-year-old comic brought his shtick to the AFI's Shirley MacLaine tribute; likened the president to a janitor.

    Don Rickles nearly hijacked the American Film Institute’s tribute to Shirley MacLaine on Thursday night at Sony Pictures Studios, unleashing a trademark barrage of insults that took aim at President Obama, Warren Beatty, Jack Nicholson and the honoree herself.

    “I shouldn’t make fun of the blacks,†Rickles said, and then proceeded to do just that: “President Obama is a personal friend of mine. He was over to the house yesterday, but the mop broke.â€

    “I shouldn’t make fun of the blacks,” Rickles said, and then proceeded to do just that: “President Obama is a personal friend of mine. He was over to the house yesterday, and I made him clap whenever I left the room.”

    I was looking forward to the racist Obama joke, but that's lame. The mop broke? 'Cause blacks are janitors?

    really. everyone is so afraid of criticizing or making jokes about obama for fear of being thought of as racist.
    have you ever seen bill maher or john stewart mock the prez? no qualms about beating up on anyone else.
    good for rickles!

    Of course he can use a mop. He's been trying to clean up Dubya's mess for three and a half years! :jj:

    if any other comic said that they'd have a problem
    Rickles gets a pass because of his advanced yrs ....rightly so too
