President Obama Thanks Aziz Ansari on Twitter, Wants “Playlist Recommendations”

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates



President Obama might be on his way to DJ greatness, and it’s all thanks to Aziz Ansari.

On Thursday, Obama tweeted, “Now taking playlist recommendations. (Thanks, @azizansari.)” and linked to video of the comedian’s recent appearance on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.”

The “Parks and Recreation” star had told Fallon about meeting Obama at an event and being surprised by the President’s easy backstage manner.


Speaking of the Commander-in-Chief, Ansari recalled, “This dude acts the exact same way I would act if I was president. Just walking around, talking trash, cracking jokes… ‘Wuzzup! How much money did we raise tonight? $5 million? Let’s go to the club, let’s turn that into a campaign event, $20,000-a-head, I’m deejaying, DJ POTUS, let’s go!”

Apparently, the President (or at least the person in charge of his Twitter account), thinks Ansari might be on to something.
