Barack Obama Imitates Richard Sherman Somewhat Effectively

by 5 years ago


President Barack Obama delivered a speech at the White House Correspondents dinner on Saturday night and the famous people assembled ate it up like they were enthusiastic patrons at a four-drink minimum comedy club.

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was in attendance because he gave a particular yell-y interview after a football game several months ago. His teammate, who actually intercepted the game-deciding pass in the NFC Championship Game, was not invited and did not get mentioned by the president in his speech.

History, you know, is written by those who speak the loudest.

Obama’s shoutout was brief, but required multiple glances at his notes. That said, he really nailed it.

I’m personally really looking forward to the final years of Barry’s presidency. And it’s not because I have anything against him. No, it’s because a man with nothing to lose is fun to watch. With no re-election to worry about, a leader can let his constituents know what he really thinks — after years of desperately trying to please. And though he doesn’t seem the type, the possibility of the first SWEATPANTS PRESIDENT is there.

Here’s hoping Obama’s apathy reaches comical levels. It’s change both sides of the aisle can believe in.
