The cast of the hit Broadway musical “Hamilton” visited the White House on Monday and clearly impressed one of their biggest fans: President Barack Obama.
The musical’s creator and star, Lin-Manuel Miranda, led a student workshop with first lady Michelle Obama and performed a few songs. He also shared his famous freestyling skills with the president.
Watch the video below to see Obama shake his head in amazement as Miranda comes up with some crazy rhymes on the fly, using words and phrases inspired by the musical’s political themes.
In the video, Obama says: “You think that’s going viral? That’s going viral.”
It’s safe to say that it did. Within a half-hour, the White House video had been retweeted several thousand times.
