Some leaders just talk about the issues. But not President Barack Obama. He slow jams the issues! Following his much-praised tribute to Al Green last January, the POTUS appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night and delivered a smooth speech that was more Barry White than Barry Obama. Plus he explained to us what “POTUS” means! The Prez managed to keep a straight face as he spoke about keeping student loan interest rates low, even as Jimmy Fallon and the Roots front-man Black Thought kept the jokes flowing. “Ohhh yeahhh, you should listen to the president!Or as I like to call him, the Preezy of the United Steezy,” Jimmy crooned.
The crowd went wild, but reactions to the Obama’s performance have been mixed. Fox News is (predictably) labeling the affair “Obama’s Jimmy Fallon Embarrassment.” Should the president keep on doing these publicity stunts? Does it make him look cool and fun, or just desperate and irresponsible? Watch the full clip below, and then let us know in our poll!
