President Barack Obama Slow Jams With Jimmy Fallon
We don't post videos in our news section much. Why, I don't know. I guess we prefer to entertain with our master wordsmanship. Anyway, I'm making an exception today. Tuesday night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, our 44th President Barack Obama was a guest on the show for the first time, and showed just why his rating in the likeability category remains high. First, before the Prez did an interview with Fallon, he elected to "slow jam" some news:
As if the LOL inducing sight of the President struggling to contain his laughter while slow jamming (as Fallon referred to him as both the "the Preezy of the United Steezy" and "the Barack-ness Monster"), Obama went on to deliver a fairly candid, entertaining, and pretty hilarious interview:
Here, he addresses the secret service scandal:
And here he takes questions from Twitter:
In this clip he talks about an embarrassing moment he suffered during an event with important guests:

I agree with Matt 110%. We have an amazing Preezie! He's likeable, positive and sensible..just what we need for 2012, except for the whole "weed" thing. I suppose I can forgive this one little oversight. It's too bad we can only have him for 8 years.

I thought it was simply awesome. Without getting into any polotics - I really enjoyed it. It says something about the man - when hes willing to get up there and make fun of himself like that - that is what I really enjoyed - to see my president going out on a limb - and not be afriad of critics. Reguardless of policies - we need more politicians who arnt afraid to make fun of themselves - or really connect with the people.
