President Obama, like Lady Gaga, is ‘Born This Way’: watch the supercut video here

Posted on

Is President Obama secretly a Little Monster?

It certainly seems that way in this new fan video, by the same YouTube user who previously dubbed the leader of the free world singing “(Cheers) Drink to That.”

In this follow-up, the President goes Gaga: The vid features a clever mash-up of the President’s speeches, intercut so that he appears to be doing “Born This Way” karaoke that would make Lady Gaga proud.

A speech at the Human Rights Campaign where he says, “I’ve had some productive bilateral talks with your leader, Lady Gaga,” leads into the clip; he’s certainly got some moves (Ba-rocking back and forth!) but unfortunately, the President doesn’t actually sport the Monster claw.

The song cuts out before Gaga’s extended ‘love yourself’ rap, so those hoping to see the President vogueing to “Don’t be a drag/Just be a queen” will have to make their own full-length video — no, seriously, please make that happen.

Check the President rocking out below:

Mitt Romney, the bedazzled shoe is in your court. I’m waiting for you to “Marry The Night.”

Readers: Want more clips like this? Do you think, much like Bill Clinton, that Obama also gets down to Gaga in his non-Internet-meme life?
