Obama: I Have More Twitter Followers Than Comedian Aziz Ansari! [Video]

By on March 7, 2012

The USA President Barack Obama sometimes gets wild and in try to get some laughter like a professional comedian he often speaks ahead of his mind. He has sung many songs at various occasions, but this time he sings his own praises by saying that he has more Twitter followers than the U.S. most popular comedian and the Parks and Rec Star Aziz Ansari.

What we can say about Obama’s bragging skills….no doubt he has more than 12.8 million followers on Twitter and all use to praise Obama to boost his image in the world.

Obama was talking to the audience at at a fundraiser event. The President also revealed that his 13-year-old daughter, Malia Obama, is a big fan of Parks and Rec and when she learned that Aziz Ansari was also participating in this fundraiser, she became highly excited and thrilled.

Mr. President also liked to tell comedian Ansari, the Parks and Rec star: “I’ve got more Twitter followers than you, man.”

When we looked onto Twitter statistics, we found that Obama’s claim is quite right; at present Aziz Ansari has about 1.6 million Twitter followers which are far behind than Barack Obama who is leading the comedian with massive 12.8 million followers of his Twitter page. So, the comedian Ansari didn’t take Obam’s joke seriously and in return he tweeted the video with comments; “President Obama gives me a shoutout, calls me out on lack of Twitter followers. Unreal.”

On the other hand, Obama explained that he passed these comments only to keep Ansari “humble and hungry” without any intention of embarrassing him.

Interestingly enough, Ansari and other big stars including Russell Brand and Deepak Chopra, were gathered there for the New York fundraising event for Obama’s reelection campaign and the Democratic National Committee fund.

It should be worthy to note that Mr. President is well ahead of Republicans running against him; Newt Gingrich has more than 1.4 million and Mitt Romney has 362,551.
