NEW YORK (TheWrap.com) – After years of outrageous and sometimes inflammatory public statements, Tracy Morgan was somber and reserved during an appearance on “Conan” Tuesday. Just kidding.

The “30 Rock” star said President Obama was a “gangbanger” and should celebrate Osama bin Laden’s death with a gangster-style teardrop tattoo. He also said he may vote for Mitt Romney so that he can have four wives.

“He’s from Utah, right? They’re Mormons? They’ve got many wives?” Morgan said. “There you go! Responsible leadership four wives? I’m going with four wives.”

Why? Because all he wants from life is to “do karate and make babies,” he explained.

Morgan was making a lot of sense to us, but then some Googling revealed that Mormons, in fact, banned polygamy in 1890. The church has no official position on karate.

Morgan also said he thinks the killing of bin Laden will help Obama’s re-election chances.

“If you assassinate foreign dictators, you bangin’. He should get a teardrop right here,” Morgan said, pointing to his eye.
