President Barack Obama had quite the night out on the town last night in New York City.
We hear he gave his usual speech which contrasted his vision for the country to that of Mitt Romney's, but he also dropped lots of compliment's for hip hop's biggest power couple along with a few zingers!
“Let me just begin by saying to Jay and Bey, thank you so much for your friendship. We are so grateful. Michelle and Malia and Sasha are mad at me because they are not here. That doesn’t usually happen. Usually they’re like, we’re glad you’re going–we don’t need to go. But every time they get a chance to see these two they are thrilled, partly because they are just both so generous, particularly to my kids. And Malia and Sasha just love both of them.”
“Jay-Z now knows what my life is like. We both have daughters, and our wives are more popular than we are. So we’ve got a little bond there. It’s hard, but it’s okay.”
These two couples are getting so close that we wouldn't surprised if Obama appointed Jay or Beyoncé to his cabinet. If Kal Penn got a job at the White House, we don't see why they can't either.
