Comedy legend Mel Brooks might have turned 90 back in June, but he hasn't lost a step when it comes to comedic timing. During a recent visit to the White House to accept the 2015 National Medal of Arts (no doubt for his classic films like Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, and Spaceballs), Brooks decided to pull a quick and easy joke on Obama. As soon as Obama finished giving Brooks his medal, Brooks bent down, acting like he was about to pants the Leader of the Free World. As the video shows, it lowkey looks like Obama didn't know what was going on at first but soon caught on and tried to do...something. Who knows.
The audience seemed to enjoy it, but really, it's just an old man faking like he'd pants our President. Pure Brooks, but it's surprising that Obama was so slow to react.
The clock's ticking on Obama's second term... maybe he's just slow to react to everything?
