‘We were makin’ honey,’ says the First Lady.

    Given the standards of Hip-Hop world, she MIGHT be able to keep him when he’s laid off.

      “She……..” ?
      Evidently you didn’t get the memo.

  • Mark says:

    How is this possibly related to classical music?
    I doubt either one has even ever attended a classical music concert.

    • MWnyc says:

      The Obamas have had classical musicians perform several times at the White House and have been to Metropolitan Opera at least once during their term. They may well go more once they don’t have to have massive and disruptive security details at every event they attend.

  • Holly Golightly says:

    The Obamas just have nothing else to do; every time you see them they’re behaving like the Buckingham Palace royal family, entertaining rap singers and everybody with a brand name. There’s a lack of gravitas and decision-making which is a hallmark of these long, last years in office. Who’d have thought…??!! Meanwhile, the world burns.

      1- That is (also) the job of a head of state. Bush went to the Correspondents’ Dinners as well, etc.
      2- No one works 168 hours a week. That’s not laziness, that’s mental balance.
      3- What is the official duty of the First Lady? Oh right…

      • Holly Golightly says:

        Come on now, every time you see the Obamas they’re ‘entertaining’ or doing something flippant. And Barack responds to world crises with all the passion of a customer ordering pizza over the phone. There’s a standing joke in our home whenever we see him speaking…”two Hawaiian with extra pineapple..ah, mozzarella cheese too…ah…and make that without mushrooms”. Yes, he’d use the same tone for this or any catastrophe.

      “every time you see them”

      No. That’s everytime *you* see them.
      Actually, no. That’s everytime *you* report having seen them.
      Your systematical anti-Obama, anti-liberal rant is as pathetic as Borstlap’s anti-modernist music.
      BTW, “slipped disc” is not fox “news”.

      • Holly Golightly says:

        You cannot change the perceptions millions have that Obama is as weak as….well, you know what. He’s pathetic. And desperate to find a legacy like his other ineffectual, incessantly-talking twin Jimmy Carter.

  • Robert Holmén says:

    Very amusing. I’ve never watched “Carpool Karaoke” before.

    Norman, you really ought to go to real-name-only commenting on your site.

    • MWnyc says:

      You should look up the one Corden did with Lin-Manuel Miranda, Jane Krakowski, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Audra McDonald before the Tonys.
