President Obama Gets Heckled At The Illinois Polls And Is Characteristically Smooth In Response

Hell yes to our incredibly smooth President. Remember that time that he totally owned the birthers at the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner literally a day before Osama Bin Laden was tracked down and killed? If you don’t, enjoy it. It’s hilarious.

Anyway, if he can keep his cool under a situation like that, it’s no wonder he can crack jokes when someone starts acting silly to him while he’s trying to vote. President Obama went to the polls early in Illinois yesterday and was heckled by a man named Mike Jones, who told the President not to touch his girlfriend, who was in the booth next to Obama. “I really wasn’t planning on it,” Obama responded, then began talking to the woman in question, Aia Cooper. “Now you’ll be going back home, talking to your friends about this. ‘I can’t believe Mike, he’s such a fool.’”

The Prez got a kiss out of it too, saying, “Now he’s really jealous.” Let’s be real, GW could not have pulled that off. Clinton … well, Clinton did. I feel conflicted about it because it’s totally charming and it would’ve worked on me, but only because he’s Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States of America. Then again, my boyfriend wouldn’t be making foolish comments like that to the President, so there you go.
