There is nothing that matters to Barack and Michelle Obama more than their status in the entertainment industry. That’s why it came as no surprise on Sunday night when the first couple dropped everything to appear at the Tony Awards, less than 24 hours after a major terrorist attack was carried out against the US, leaving 50 dead.
According to CBS News, the Obamas introduced a performance from the hit show Hamilton, which won 11 awards last night. The couple recounted how the show’s creator Lin-Manuel Miranda attended a poetry jam at the White House years ago and, instead of performing something from his previous Tony-winning musical, In the Heights, he debuted his first attempt at the project that would become Hamilton.
“I confess, we all laughed, but who’s laughing now?” Barack asked.
If the Obamas put as much effort into fighting terrorism as they do into impressing celebrities, ISIS might have been destroyed long ago.
