Coolest president ever?

Happy Birthday, President Obama! In celebration of his 54th birthday, we're taking a look back at the Commander-in-chief's best pop culture moments that kept us talking. If only a third term was possible...

A MAN OF MANY TALENTS


We love President Obama for so many different reasons, but mainly because he's able to break out of his political shell and have a little fun. At a fundraising event back in 2012, the POTUS showed off his golden pipes as he took on Al Green's "Let's Stay Together."

 


CHOPPING IT UP


In an effort to push the Affordable Care Act, President Obama sat with actor Zach Galifianakis for a completely random (and at times ridiculous) installment of "Between Two Ferns." While the pair didn't quite hit it off, Obama was able to spread his message about health care. Small wins.

 


HATERS GON' HATE


Shoutout to a president that can take a joke and poke fun at himself. Obama took on a segment of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!'s" Mean Tweets and handled the comments like a pro.

 


HARD NEWS WITH A TWIST


President Obama couldn't resist 'slow jamming the news' with Jimmy Fallon, as the pair discussed the cost of student loans. Backed by house band The Roots, the segment was one sexy way to get America to pay attention.

 


OBAMAWEEN


Long before we were calling him President Obama, the then-U.S. Senator stopped by "Saturday Night Live" in 2007 in an attempt to show his more humorous side. He attended the Clintons' Halloween party as an ambitious political figure-- himself. Things worked out, as he was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States in 2009.

 


#NORMALPEOPLE


President Obama is one of us, and don't you forget it. Sure, he serves as Commander-in-chief and calls the White House 'home,' but he still has his quirks like everybody else. And for those questioning his behavior, he says: "Can I live?" Word to JAY Z.

 

President Obama made a BuzzFeed video: Things Everybody Does But Doesn't Talk AboutHow did we get Obama to use a selfie stick? Oh, because he wants you to go to https://www.healthcare.gov/.
