President Barack Obama left office in January of 2017, almost exactly one year ago. Since then, he has been living a life of comparative leisure; spending time with friends like Richard Branson (and Richard Branson’s yacht) and David Letterman.
Well, the Letterman thing wasn’t just for leisure, though the two-term Commander in Chief certainly seems relaxed: For his first late-night appearance since leaving office, Obama was scheduled to be the opening guest on David Letterman’s new Netflix series, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman.
The show premiered last Friday, 1/12/18, but, for a teaser for those who haven’t yet watched the interview, Netflix released a clip in which Obama discusses the honor and privilege of dancing with Minneapolis legend Prince.
Which says a lot about the late superstar, and the quality of Minnesotans in general, dontchathink?
The charmingly self-deprecating Obama is well-aware of his mediocre dancing skills, but understands that as long as he “…stays in the pocket…” he shouldn’t embarrass his family (too much).
Watch the clip below:
Subsequent guests on the show include Malala Yousafzai, Tina Fey, JAY-Z, George Clooney, and Howard Stern.
