“Folks Wanna Pop Off?” President Obama Claps Back in the Best Way Possible!

President Obama had some choice words for those critical of the way he’s dealt with the Islamic State.

He pretty much said that he has no time for the haters, and if people aren’t proposing solutions then they should take all that yappity yap THAT way.

But the WAY he said it was glorious, so unapologetically Black, that we had to watch it on repeat about 14 times. The way he juxtaposed that colloquialism with those official, presidential hand gestures was simply perfect. Just perfect.

Bonus: that “you tried it” expression of annoyance on his face.

The President of the United States said the words, “folks wanna pop off.” In that order. 

Reason number 1297869824 why we love him.
