To celebrate the fifth birthday of his administration’s behind-the-scenes video series, President Barack Obama took one for the team and made a fool of himself.
Obama stepped in to narrate the special episode of West Wing Week, a series that his public engagement team has produced since 2010 to give people a unique look at the president’s daily schedule.
At 3:58 in the latest episode, Obama—filling in for regulator narrator and White House press secretary Josh Earnest—looks down at the camera and tries his best impression of House of Cards congressman-turned-president Frank Underwood.
Aaaaaaaaand… it’s bad. Really bad.
The consensus on Twitter is that the leader of the free world shouldn’t quit his day job.
