President Obama Slow Jams the News with Jimmy Fallon (Video)

"I wanna slow jam the news and I'm not the only one," Jimmy Fallon said on his late night talk show.

Then, President Obama came out and the crowd went wild. He introduced himself (but there's really no introduction needed) and says he also wants to slow jam the news. 

A slow beat starts to play and Obama starts talking about interest on student loans... with Jimmy Fallon dropping in a, "ohhhh should listen to the President..."

Obama said:

On July 1st of this year, the interest rate on Stafford Loans are set to double and that means that some hard working students will be paying a thousand dollars extra for their education. So I’ve called on Congress to prevent this from happening. What we said was simple: Now is not the time to make school more expensive for our young people. There’s some in Congress who disagree. They say keeping the interest rate low isn’t a way to help our students. They say we should be doing everything we can to pay down the national debt — well, so long as it doesn’t include taxing billionaires.”Watch the clip below:
