Barack Obama Slow Jams The News with Jimmy and The Roots

Barack Obama Slow Jams The News

Jimmy Fallon is known for his musical sketches with his guests and the world famous Roots band. Last night Jimmy surprised his UNC audience when President Barack Obama joined him and Black Thought to “Slow Jam The News,” an on-going segment on LNWJF that typically features news anchor Brian Williams. The Roots and Jimmy set the tone for the president to call on congress to prevent rates from doubling on some 7.4 million-student loans. Calling the president the “Potus with the Most-est” and “The Prizzy Of the United Stizzy” sent trending tweets national. To end the sketch the president waved and dropped the microphone like a true rock star. Swag.
