Charles Barkley, the former NBA star, recently made a joke on TNT’s “Inside the NBA” about the average voter and the President. His comment drew a muted response from his co-host Adam Lefkoe, who was unsure of how to respond. Barkley’s comment was similar to an apocryphal Churchill quote about democracy, which is “the best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.”
