Look, this is Twitchy, and we’re guessing the last thing our readership wants to see is a video of Barack Obama — but seriously, this one is worth a look. He might have taken the name for his “My Brother’s Keeper Alliance” out of its biblical context, but speaking at an event in Oakland, Calif., he took some contemporary rappers down a peg.
Now we all know Obama was confident in his sexuality or he wouldn’t have been seen biking around in those mom jeans of his, but we’ve got to give him credit here: there are better role models out there than hip-hop is producing.

OK, maybe you do.
I'm getting sick of the government telling me what I don't "need"

Good one. Hey, does anybody else remember the Obama White House using an animated GIF of a woman twerking to promote Obamacare? We do:

Uh oh. Obama about to be canceled.

I don't disagree with him on either point, but someone's gonna accuse him of 'slut shaming'.

Glad he said this. People act like Hip-Hop is above criticism, but the reality is the hypersexualization of women is both problematic for women and the young men who watch. It reinforces very toxic ideas and makes men feel the need to overcompensate.

I disagree with the man on most every policy issue and I know he straight up lied to us on a number of occasions. Having said that, I’ve always respected him as a solid father and husband and he makes good sense here.

Hey, I finally agree with something Obama said! Wow!

Nothing. Nothing is as sensual, sexy, or intriguing as a man with confidence and intellect.

So is this twerkphobia or twerkist.

Interviewer: uh, sir the question was about your stance on Venezuela

Let's see the reaction this gets. Remember, the reason why @BillCosby is behind bars is because #HannibalBuress and judge #EduardoRobreno was offended by what he said about young black men wearing saggy pants (among other things), and thought he needed comeuppance.

The reaction he gets is … mixed, let’s say.
"its actually gay to get twerked on" is a pretty bold statement

Fuck this guy for doing a remix of of Cosby's "pull your pants up" rant.
— Bill Maher's Hairline (@JeffandWill) February 20, 2019
What is this garbage? Not much different than 5'3" Ben Shapiro telling kids to pull up their pants.

I'm guessing @BarackObama forgets his best friend Beyonce twerks all the time. Has large groups of other women twerking on stage too. I guess it's ok when billionaires do it.

I like it when Obama answers questions nobody was asking. Especially when he does it in such a smarmy, self-righteous way.

Speaking of old men, what are Joe Biden’s and Bernie Sanders’ official stances on twerking?
