The White House today is celebrating what it is calling yet another “digital milestone” of the Obama administration. Since the launch of the White House’s official YouTube channel in January 2009, the Narcissist-in-Chief has racked up 100 million views — that’s more views than all previous presidents combined, and nearly a tenth of the views logged by South Korean rapper PSY in the past five months. It’s also, notably, about 100 million more views than “Innocence of Muslims” had tallied before the White House decided to promote it.
Among the top 10 most popular videos are Obama’s announcement of the killing of Osama bin Laden, the president’s “New Beginning” speech in Cairo, Egypt, and a test firing of the White House’s “Extreme Marshmallow Cannon.”
@whitehouse I'd hate to have to be that white house aid that had to keep hitting play one million times!
