President Obama Gives Props to Young Jeezy at White House Correspondents’ Dinner

President Obama and Young Jeezy

Young Jeezy has a fan in the White House. President Obama shouted out the Snowman during his speech at the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, D.C. last night.

“In my first term I sang Al Green. In my second term, I’m going with Young Jeezy,” joked the POTUS before turning to First Lady Michelle Obama. “I sing that to her sometimes.”

Jeezy returned the love. “Shout out to @BarackObama,” tweeted the rapper, who recorded “My President” during Obama’s 2008 campaign. “You know they love the snowman in the white house.”

Watch Jeezy get his presidential props below.

    @joey, Lmao… I wouldn’t say terrible. He accomplished a tremendous amount of stuff and passed numerous laws w/o the republicans help… In just 3 yrs… He turned the US economy completely around… Do you not remember how bad it was in 2008??? I swear americans only have short term memory… We could have occupy wall street… Then Nicki Minaj could have a nip slip and every one forgets about the 1%. Trayvon Martin could get shot and killed for just having a hoodie on… But as soon as Kanye and Kim Kardashian start dating… No one remembers Zimmerman! Fuck ya ll complaining ass niggas man!

    @joey, Thanks to Bush and his policies, we were losing 750K jobs per month when BHO took office. We are now gaining 120 – 200K per month under BHO. After lying about WMD, Bush said finding Bin Laden wasn’t all that important, BHO got Bin Laden. Repigs said let the free market take care of itself, BHO said “no, that’s what got us here…”. As a result GM/Detroit is alive.

    So, Bush 3.0 gives his co-sign to Jeezy.

    Just as Bush got us into $5 trillion deficit, Obama DOUBLED it in less than half the time.
    Just as Bush got us into two wars in Afghanistan & Iraq, Obama’s gotten us into FIVE wars by adding Libya, Pakistan, and Yemen as well (at least Bush had Congress’ approval for his)
    Just as Bush got the Patriot Act into law, Obama’s extended it THREE TIMES.
    Just as Bush sank us into record high gas prices, Obama’s DOUBLED them.

    So much for all that hope and change…

    Cranberry & Iceman are obviously BUTT HURT that Obama WILL win this election compared to the freaks the Republicans regurgitated out to compete.

    Romney is a flip-flopping robot in a suit.

    @Iceman this post is for anyone who may have been misled by “iceman.” last time I checked we hadn’t declared war on any of those countries….we have NOT doubled record high gas prices. in 05 and 08 they were above $4 when bush was in office. We are in more debt but it has not been doubled. Also we are in more debt b/c Obama had to borrow from the fed reserve to bail out the banks/start stimulus which has paid dividends for the country. He has extended the Patriot act. So you got ONE right Iceman, lol

    Obama 2012, haters!

    What the hell are all these prejudiced folks gonna do? They hate Obama because he’s black, but they ALSO hate Romney, who is a Mormon.

    In their minds, it’s a “lose-lose” situation either way.
