Why President Obama 'Dropped the Mic'

Obama walked out with swagger, slow jammed the news, ripped the #GOP a new one, then dropped the mic! BOOM! #ObamaOnFallon." That's how one viewer's Tweet captured the President’s actions late Tuesday night on Jimmy Fallon's satirical 'Slow Jam the News' segment. The President's appearance on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon show capped off a whirlwind tour on Tuesday that included stops at three universities where President Obama urged voters—particularly college students—to press Congress to pass an act that would keep interest rates on student loans from doubling this summer. The President took his message on the road again on Wednesday, stopping to speak at the University of Iowa to urge a crowded audience of college students to keep the pressure on their congressional leaders. The President’s decision to “drop the mic” at the end of his TV performance represented a creative approach to bringing attention to a critical issue and reaching out to young voters who are familiar with the popular culture gesture. "Unless Congress acts before July 1st, interest rates on federal student loans are set to double—forcing more than 7 million students to pay an average of almost $1,000 more over the life of their loans. That’s simply unacceptable," according to President Obama.
