Smooth: Obama mentions ‘Gangham Style’ in presser with S. Korean pres. [video]
At a joint press conference this afternoon with South Korean President Park Geun-hye, President Obama showed us once again why he is the hippest POTUS evah:
Pres Obama also jokes that his daughters have familiarized him with Gangnam Style.

Didn’t teach him to correctly pronounce. 🙁 RT @thefix: “my daughters have taught me a pretty good Gangnam style.” — President Obama.

Yes, it’s as cringetastic as you imagine.
Let’s go to the videotape!
Ooph. Crickets after Obama makes terrible Gangnam Style joke.

Oh no, Obama mispronounces “Gangham Style.”

He can still recover if he dances it. RT @reidepstein: Oh no, Obama mispronounces “Gangham Style.”

Sorry. No recovery from this.
I hope the writer that encouraged Obama’s weak gangnam style joke gets fired. No kimchee jokes in there? How about a bimbimbop reference.

Well done as usual, Mr. President.
Really?Obama talks about learning a “pretty good Gangnam style” in his press conference….didn’t he remember that Psy spoke badly @ USA?
