Fellas, Don’t Sleep: President Obama Is Casting Votes And Stealing Girlfriends
There’s so much drama in the LBC, a little levity every once in a while never hurt anybody. Today’s little feel good moment comes from our president.
President Obama was in his home stage of Illinois this morning to participate in early voting. And as you know, anytime the president shows up anywhere things get very official. People were snapping photos, the room goes extremely quiet as people wait for the president to utter a word on which they can hang. The scene was similar as the president was casting his ballot next to a woman, Aia Cooper. But things took a swift turn when Cooper’s boyfriend, Mike Jones, decided to have a little fun with the leader of the free world.
Jones walks past the President of the United States, points at him and says, “Don’t touch my girlfriend, now.”
And since President Obama is rather witty and quick on his feet, he kept the banter going.
“There’s an example of brother just embarrassing me for no reason. Just for no reason whatsoever.”
He even predicted what Aia would say to her friends later.
“I can’t believe Mike, he’s such a fool. I was just mortified. But fortunately, fortunately the President was nice about it. So it’s aight.”
The news transcripts read “alright” but you listen for yourself and tell me what the president said.
How nice! What could have been a mundane trip to the polls turned out to be a memorable, comedic encounter with President Obama, all because your boyfriend has no ackright.
Aia should marry that dude. Her life will never be boring.
And while Mike started it all, President Obama got the last laugh as he exited the room, hugging Cooper.
“Give me a kiss and give him something to talk about. Now, he’s really jealous.”
I’ve transcribed the juicy parts, but be sure to watch the video above to get the full effect and see what Mike and Aia had to say to the news cameras afterward.
