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:

Yes. Yes it is. Shut up.

Considering the canned nonsense coming from the GOP candidates, it's nice to have a President who is not only knowledgeable about pop culture but can successfully snap a professional comic. Just another reminder of which 2012 candidate is most comfortable with reality.

Wow, what a great, hip, with-it leader! Of course he has more Twitter followers. He's on every show, every network, twenty-four seven. Barry is the Regis Philbin of wannabe leftist autocrats.
