Barack Obama: Eminem Lose Yourself pumped up POTUS before DNC
President Barack Obama is just like us: He likes Kendrick Lamar and Jimmy Fallon’s “Slow Jam the News,” he’s obsessed with Game of Thrones, and now we know he gets pumped up for big speeches by listening to Eminem.
A behind-the-scenes video from the Democratic National Convention, which was held in Philadelphia at the end of July, sees POTUS bopping his head up and down to the rapper’s 2002 hit “Lose Yourself.”
Later in the video, Obama is seen busting former President Bill Clinton over his wife and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. “I hope you don’t mind me saying, she’s a little more qualified than you,” he said. “I included myself in that category.”
See the video above and skip to the 58-second mark to see Obama hyping himself up.
