      “Prior” kinda rhymes with “viral” which Obama says. Think that was a coincidence or typical Manuel genius?

    • Em Horses says:


  • captaintaco2345 says:

    Let’s see Trump do something this cool

  • maryam says:


  • Sarah Roze says:

    RIP Obama Administration. I miss Obama as president and Michelle as first lady.

  • John Drazba says:

    1:33 Obama is in one stiff competition with Trump for the title of “Most Awkward Handshaker.” Lin has got to get his RIGHT HAND (MAN) back!

    • Mags says:

      John Drazba
      Honestly, I don’t see it as awkward. I saw it as this:
      *Lin was about to pull away*
      *Obama holds on* THIS AWESOME MAN IS MINE!
      *Lin gleefully holds on*
      I saw it as a pure moment, not awkwardness.

      But no doubt, Trump wins most awkward handshake…for eternity

    • POLAR Canadia says:

      It was cute. No, Adorable! I bet Obama wasn’t satisfied, though he had his one shot. I wish I wouldn’t have to wait for mine.. :3 :c

      Jay Walker
      Why do you write like your running out of time

  • Kaitlyn bare says:

    Officially the most important thing

  • Miwa Sakata says:

    That death grip, though. I guess Obama didn’t want Lin to leave and I don’t blame him.

  • PrinsusC says:

    I miss obama 🙁

  • villager Sencer says:

    The coolest POTUS. Thanks obama.

  • ella renee says:

    wow. iconic.

  • Leo Jaramillo says:

    so dope!!!!

  • Hamilton Trash says:

    Let’s not forget that Lin bro-hugged the president

  • primadonna says:

    Doesn’t drop the mic knows it cost like 100000 dollars

  • Alexis Ramos says:

    Obama did not want to let go of his hand, LOL

  • Katie Estep says:

    I like how at the end instead of letting go of Obama’s hand, Lin just awkwardly holds it for like five seconds

    • Armeki Persa says:

      Katie Estep actually Obama is the one who take is hand

  • Just another human says:

    Here we see the leader of the us along with the president.

  • GriffJS says:

  • Lex Smith says:

    It’s like Obama was holding up all these controversal words to see if Lin would slip up, and say something offensive.

  • Esther Rosi-Kessel says:

    I love all the Hamilton references!

  • Paladin JN01 says:

  • jaminjo_ says:

  • Comandante Thorn says:

    Im almost sure that the reason of Lin using jeans when he needs to go formal its because he really likes his blue coat but he doesnt have a pant that combines that its not a jeans xD

  • Submarine in the Sky says:

  • Anej Sekol says:
