Watch Obama “Slow-Jam The News” With The Roots And Jimmy Fallon
By Brooklyn Magazine and Brooklyn Magazine
He was a good orator to begin with, but damn, Obama’s campaign to keep student loan interest rates where they are sounds so much funkier when accompanied by the Rapper Black Thought and Jimmy Fallon. Yes, this happened: The POTUS slow-jammed the news on Fallon last night, using the segment as a platform to talk about why Congress ought to stop unsubsidized Stafford loans from doubling on July 1. The best part? Obama remains straight-faced, eyes-on-the-prize, all the while Black Thought croons behind him, “The right and left should join on this like Kim and Kanye,” and Fallon assumes his best Barry White impression to say, “The Barackness Monster ain’t buyin’ it.” Poor Mitt Romney. Ted Nugent isn’t doing the guy any slow-jam favors.
