President Obama doesn't usually slow jam the news, but when he does, boy is it good. President Barack Obama was on Tuesday night's episode of "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" and rather than doing his usual sit-down-and-talk-about-politics schtick, he tried something a little different.

A recurring segment on Fallon's late show is "slow jamming the news" -- but this time, Obama joined in on the fun. He used the segment to talk -- er, we mean "slow jam" -- about student loans. And though he may sound a bit too academic doing it, Obama was complemented by Fallon's smooth "ohhhhh yeahhhh's," making the segment both hilarious and educational. Well, at least we think so. Watch the clip below and let us know: do you think President Obama "slow jamming the news" is awesome -- or inappropriate?

    Could it be civil rights, a lot of my white friends have no jobs.
  • Desirae USA-1 2012/05/04 15:18:01
    Well all my white friends have jobs and don't awesome because I'm a black women that I don't have white friends. You need to expand your typical white persons thoughts. I said before it may be because I live in NY. NY really did not get hit by the rescission.

    It sheds some light on how serious everyone is nowadays
  • USA-1 hevani 2012/05/01 15:40:44
    Yes, I am serious. I have paid taxes for over 40 years and fought for my country. I do not want to see a foolish person elected by foolish people down grade our country any more. If the GE owned news media was not so biased, your hero Obama would look like the idiot he is. But you people with weak mental faculties would support Obama if he had all the christians killed for teaching from the bible.

    Nothing finer than the short bus president, praise allah, hail obama, we are so screwed.
  • Ron 2012/04/27 00:23:14
    He demonstrates that he is a average American.
  • BUD LITE Ron 2012/04/29 22:18:23
    Why...because he is stupid or I guess I should have said you are the stupid one for believing him. Most White people don't buy his jive....we're too smart..... but he knows he can put it over on Blacks. Wise up or we will all go down the tube.
  • Ron BUD LITE 2012/05/01 03:18:15
    Maybe you should change your name to RACIST Lite.
  • BUD LITE Ron 2012/05/01 04:33:43
    You can change it to anything you want. It still won't change the fact that everything I say is the truth and you're just tooooo dumb to see it. Really though Black people DON'T want to see it as long as they get their welfare and any freebees they think Obama might include.
  • USA-1 Ron 2012/05/01 15:45:29
    Yes, very average. Perhaps less than average with out his teleprompter
  • Snow 2012/04/27 00:13:02
    This is a very good public appearance! I'm glad he did this-- not only was it funny and refreshing, but he's appealing to the young, 20s-30s base!
  • chris.b... Snow 2012/04/28 14:27:51
    Do you mean the easily Manipulated, Already Indoctrinated Uninformed Sheep base? DUH
  • USA-1 Snow 2012/05/01 15:55:09
    Yes, for their votes. But are they that stupid, if they are the next generation is in trouble.
  • upsevendown 2012/04/27 00:10:07
    I don't want to see Obama slow jamming anything. I just want to see his FAST DEPARTURE from the White House! I lost humor a long time ago. There is nothing he can do that I want to see and those things that I do he has not interest in doing (LOWER GAS PRICES)!!!!!
  • none upseven... 2012/04/27 02:47:18
    Gas prices were high as hell before President Obama
  • fwf none 2012/04/27 04:09:48
    Wrong again $1.89 avg. when he took office Jan. 26, 2009.
  • Live Fr... fwf 2012/04/28 14:34:40

    Gas may have lowered when Obama took office but it got up to $4.00 bucks a gallon when good ole Bush was in office, yes it did. I doubt it was avg. $1.89 per gallon when the price dropped. I would have remembered that.
  • Ron Live Fr... 2012/05/01 03:22:18
    It was interesting that the Liars at Faux News were quick to point out that the President has no control over the Price of Gasoline. Oh I forgot, that was when 'W' was POTUS.
  • Live Fr... Ron 2012/05/01 15:20:49

    The price of gas went up to $4.25 where we live in June 2008 and didn't come down much until Bush left office, to around $250-$275 and then climbed back up to current with a spike and low in-between.

    Fox News lies so much it's hard to keep up with all their lies. Yet, the sheep don't know better.

  • Live Fr... none 2012/05/01 15:23:46

    They were as high as hell when Bush was in office, about $4.00 a gallon nationally and they were high for quite a while before they came down, around the time that President Obama took office to around $2.50 per gallon national average. But if you repeat a lie long enough it becomes the truth.
  • Karl 2012/04/27 00:05:23
    All this is is an attempt to get people to vote based on looks rather than appearance. Although I must say I'm very enticed by the whole student loan thing.
  • BUD LITE Karl 2012/04/27 06:09:10
    The student loan thing is just his way to try and get student votes.
  • Karl BUD LITE 2012/04/27 21:23:25
    I know, I know. This isn't going to be an easy Congressional election for me.

    Because you can be both Communist and Muslim.... It's not like, you know, Communism believes Religion is evil and bourgeoise and that Islam accepts class structure that Communism disdains.
