In an effort to galvanize young voters and not look like a total square, President Barack Obama has reached out to stoner heroes Harold and Kumar (actually John Cho and Kal Penn) in the wake of this Thursday's Democratic National Convention.
The video, attached below, shows the President calling on Penn, this year's DNC host, while Cho sits on the couch eating some Cheetohs, or some such garbage. No actual weed appears in the video, but Cho and Penn do laugh at the television like Gorillas with brain damage.
While Penn has been a public liaison for the Obama administration since 2009, the President's choice to align himself with the weed-smoking demographic is odd, given his ridicule of marijuana legalization advocates. Also, the Harold and Kumar movies kind of suck. Couldn't Obama call on his friends Jay-Z and LeBron James instead?
Obviously the Commander in Chief's judgment is sliding in this election year.
