Would you call Barack Obama the “Preezy of the United Steezy” or “Barackness Monster?” On last night’s Jimmy Fallon, the late night talk show host enlisted the President to help deliver the news, but as a slow jam.
The skit had Fallon, President Obama, and Tariq Trotter, aka Black Thought.of the Roots slow down the fast-paced world of immediate news, and made it much more sultry. The R&B-themed news passionately covers student loans and was complete with Pell Grant humor. They even take a shot at part-time quarterback Tim Tebow, “The GOP is steady saying ‘No, no no!’ They should find something new to do like Tom Tebow.” Is this a political ad for Obama for the upcoming election? Of course, but Fallon definitely makes the whole thing a hilarious bit.
