All his political achievements aside, President Barack Obama will be remembered for mastering the art of pop cultural virality. The first sitting president to be a late-night TV guest, the 44th commander-in-chief has spent his two terms communicating with the American public through a gauntlet of millenial-friendly means: he’s visited Marc Maron’s garage; driven a Corvette with Jerry Seinfeld; even sat Between Two Ferns.
Even now, with just a few short months left in office, the President has stayed killing it with the media savviness. Last night, he dropped by The Tonight Show to “Slow Jam the News” for a second time, running through his accomplishments over the last eight years and touching on the current election with a handful of pitch-perfect jokes.
Whether its Hillary or *shudder* the Donald who eventually triumphs in November, one thing is absolutely certain: neither of them will be anywhere near as adept at singing a Rihanna chorus on national television as my dude Barack. Orange, as he so deftly put it, is most definitely not the new Black.
