Obama wows deaf community by speaking sign language
may have looked like sleight of hand, but with a few quick gestures
Obama just about guaranteed himself the deaf vote in November, thanks to
Stephon, a deaf, 26-year-old student. After enjoying his up-close seat
to "hear" the president at Prince George's Community College, Stephon
caught his eye. "It was like he was waiting for me to say something," he explains in his video recount. "I took the moment and signed 'I am proud of you'
and his response was 'Thank you' in sign language back!" The deaf
community is mighty impressed, not only with the prez, but with
Michelle, too; click here to see her conversing comfortably in sign language!
