Clip du jour: 'The District' marries your two great loves -- Barack and reality TV

Posted on

How did the folks over at Newsweek know that we’ve been wondering just what Barack Obama’s first 100 days in office would be like if they were chronicled on, say, MTV’s The City? (Okay, I wasn’t wondering but go with me here.) Clearly, they must have known in order to create the fabulous show The District. From its spot-on musical choices to its lingering scenes with seemingly vacant stares to its use of just first names in the opening credits, the show gets it all right. But its real selling point is Imas Crosson’s impressive impression of Barack.   

You should also check out Crosson’s YouTube channel for more of his takes on Barack, like the one embedded after the jump. Seriously, has SNL seen this guy yet?
