We've heard over and over how Barack Obama is the coolest president out there, how he's so hip and so down with the people, but no one ever really expected him to do something so bad ass as to sing Lady Gaga's hit "Born This Way." Well, he didn't actually sing it -- it's more that some creative geniuses made it look like he sang the song by splicing together bits of his speeches ... but it kinda counts nonetheless.
And so there we have it: Our Prez belting out one of 2011's biggest hits like he doesn't have a care in the world. I'm sure there are going to be a lot of people out there who abhor this video, but I can't get enough of it.
For one, it's hilarious. And anyone who's got the patience and the cleverness to put this out there deserves a hat tip and a free bagel or something. It's also timely. As the presidential debates heat up, gay marriage and gay rights issues are being brought to the forefront of our minds (whether it should or shouldn't be such a hot topic is a whole other concern).
This clip of our president "singing" the praises of the LGBT community is a reminder, perhaps, of what the White House should be doing when it comes to equality and justice for all.
He may not be a little monster, but this clip makes it seem like Obama's a big fan of Lady Gaga's preachy anthem. Agree or disagree with the message, you have to admit one thing: Obama does a sick robot. Just look at those arthritic "dance" moves.
Watch Obama "sing" Lady Gaga's "Born This Way":
So ... what do you think?
