Barack Obama shakes hands with man wearing horse mask, fist bumps gorilla statue

He’s a gas man.

ON TUESDAY NIGHT, President Barack Obama was walking down the streets of Denver shaking hands with supporters, when things took a slightly surreal twist.

Things were all going fine as Barack strutted down the street like, “Hey guys!”

So far, so normal.

And then…

Let’s see that from another angle.

No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. That is the President of the United States shaking hands with a man wearing a horse head.

That wasn’t the only slightly trippy part of Obama’s sojourn to Denver. Earlier, an unidentified person offered him “a hit” of marijuana. (Marijuana is legal in Colorado.) Obama neither accepted nor declined, but just threw his head back and laughed.

And later, he was photographed fist bumping a bronze statue of a gorilla after going for a few drinks with the Governor of Colorado.


Barack Obama played ping-pong. The internet responded with an awesome Photoshop battle >

If you’re one of the 396 people who voted for this guy then you’re owed a big sloppy horse kiss >
