Barack Obama Stars in 'The District'

Barack Obama Stars in 'The District'

If you watch the The City, as you should, the spoof video below from Newsweek will be HILARIOUS.

In episode 1 of The District, Imas Crosson does a spot-on impression of President Barack Obama. The vid even gets the vacant stares down perfectly between Barack and Tim Geithner, The United States Secretary of the Treasury.

The District makes use of The City theme song — The Pussycat Dolls‘ On “Top of the World”! Newsweek also spoofs the network MTV, by appropriately calling themselves NTV.

New episode of The District on Monday? Can’t wait!
