President Obama will not only go down in history as one of the best presidents, he also has a “cool” factor like no other. From slow jamming the news with Jimmy Falon to being interviewed by Zach Galifianakis on Funny or Die’s “Between Two Ferns“; Obama just has “it.”
The newest evidence of how badass Obama really is has hit the internet and the ONLY problem with it is there just isn’t enough of it.
While waiting to go on stage at the Democratic National Convention Obama was caught pumping up to Eminem’s song “Lose Yourself” – one of the greatest “get pumped” songs, ever.
While many might say these small moments of relatability are insignificant, I disagree. When we get glimpses of our leaders doing “normal people” things or when they can make us laugh (or cry) empathy is fostered. No longer is this some powerful guy in a suit – he is a real person cracking jokes or jamming out just like “we” do. Of course, his levity is equally matched with his stoicism – he knows when each should be employed.
It also speaks to the fact that Obama, President Obama – Mr. Cool himself – sometimes needs a little boost before going out there. That’s human. That’s the adversary of arrogance and ego. While Trump supporters hold on to every angry, anti-pc word Trump speaks claiming those prove him to be “real” – we can assuredly relish Obama’s “real” moments knowing they are firmly footed in something much better.
The clip is from a video compilation of behind the scenes footage from backstage at the Democratic National Convention. It includes many of those relatable moments from several of the speakers who were on the stage during the week. There are even some candid moments from Hillary cutting up.
