Obama to Aziz Ansari: “I have more Twitter followers than you”

Pin it

With Osama bin Laden on the sea floor, and the GOP presidential candidates in disarray, it seems Barack Obama is getting antsy and needs a rival to give his life some meaning. So he's set his sights on one of the most terrifying forces in the world today: Parks and Recreation star Aziz Ansari.

In this video of a New York fundraiser, the President notes Ansari's presence, saying, "Aziz Ansari… now this is big because Malia is a big Parks and Recreation fan." (He's clearly happier about Malia's Parks and Rec fandom than he was about the Kardashians.)

Then, he continues lulling Ansari into a false sense of security: "So having Aziz here is like the only thing she thinks is worth me doing."

But then comes the attack, as Obama releases the Seal Team Six of social-media burns on Ansari: "I just want to say that I have more Twitter followers than you, man." Oh snap!

Somali pirates, Aziz Ansari; none can resist our two-fisted commander-in-chief. Check out the video below:
