Former President Barack Obama f*cked around and found out that he still had it during a Saturday voter rally for Michigan Democrats.
The charismatic former commander-in-chief made a stop at Detroit’s Renaissance High School on the city’s west side to encourage voters to cast their ballots. One group of devoted supporters went in full “auntie” mode as Obama gave a rousing speech showing support for Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who’s currently running for re-election.
In a video, Obama kept it real about not being up for the grueling challenge of campaigning on behalf of the candidates he supported.
“I have to admit that sometimes going out on the campaign trail feels a little harder than it used to,”44 explained. “Not just because I’m older and grayer….”
Obama couldn’t get his sentence out completely before one of the women in the auntie group directly behind him responded, “You fine than a muthaf*ucka*!”
The crowd around her exploded in laughter. The gracious former president turned to the woman, flashed his million-dollar smile, and asked her to repeat her brazen compliment.
She obliged, and Obama faced the audience and jokingly said, “She said I’m still fine. Ok.”
And with the swag and charisma he’s known for, Obama continued the playful banter.
“I’m not gonna tell Michelle you said that,” he joked, referencing the former first lady and his wife of 30 years.
He then added, “Although Michelle does agree. She knows.”
Obama: I’m getting old and gray.
