Obama had time for this, didn’t he? Fans call celeb US president ‘cool, laid back, black and beautiful’

Despite a promise earlier in the evening that he wouldn’t do it, President “I’ll do whatever I want and to hell with protocol” Obama led a gathering in a sing-a-long last week during a Ray Charles tribute.

Just like his promise about no more selfies — the guy just can’t help himself.

He had time for this but never seems to have time for things like national security briefings, meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or paying respects at the funeral of the longest sitting justice of the Supreme Court.
