Appearing on the 'Today' show this morning to promote his role in the flm 'Madagascar 3,' comedian Chris Rock joked about President Obama's "whiteness" (video below).

'Today' show host Ann Curry asked Rock what animal he could be if he could choose anything. Rock decided he'd stick with 'Marty the Zebra' from the film, joking that it was "in honor of our zebra president, black and white, white and black."

Rock added: "I love our president, you know, but he's black and white, he appeals to all. That's what I'm going for….We ignore the President’s whiteness, but it’s there, it’s there."
