As part of the White House's initiative to prosthelytize millennials on the benefits of ObamaCare, President Obama and members of his administration met with various YouTube personalities last week in the West Wing. Among them was Obama impersonator Iman Cross, who treated POTUS to his best impression of the commander in chief, trademark baritone voice and all.
"Either I can get to work or you can. You can take a lunch break, and I can take an hour. Fill in for you," Crosson said, while standing with Obama in the Oval Office as White House staffers cracked up behind them. The president was a good sport, laughing and telling Crosson that he'd need more gray hair on his head in order for the impersonation to be truly dead on.
"It was just a mind blowing moment–because I've been doing this for so many years–to be in his office, doing an impression of him, for him," Crosson said of the experience.
