Coach Cal worked in some political humor during his first call-in show Monday while taking a call from Jamie in Sawyersville. Jamie said he had two questions for UK’s head coach, but Calipari cut him off to make a topical joke about the White House’s new policy at press conferences.
Cal said, “I thought we only gave one question. We only allow question here — oh, that’s the White House. I’m sorry. We allow you two questions here.”
Once the caller started talking, Cal butted back in to make sure his joke played.
“Why are you laughing? I’m not supposed to say it? I thought it was funny,” he said. “I’ll let you know if you can have a follow-up, so go ahead with the first one.”
