Councilman Uses Choice Words in Getting Rid of Phony Interview Crew

The woman who was supposedly interviewing a New York city councilman about American presidential politics turned out to be from a Norwegian comedy show -- and she was asking some bizarre questions. For one thing, she asked how Barack Obama can run for president if he's not a U.S. citizen.

The councilman didn't have much patience for it -- and he ended up throwing the woman and her crew out of his office, with a string of obscenities.

The video, of course, has gone up on YouTube, where it's been seen hundreds of thousands of times.

Councilman James Oddo has apologized for his language, but not for getting angry.

The incident resembled interviews conducted by Ali G, one of the other characters created by "Borat" star Sacha Baron Cohen, who has also targeted unsuspecting American politicians.
