Watch President Obama Promise a Crying Baby He Won’t Tell Anymore Bad Dad Jokes

Even POTUS has jokes

Besides being the leader of the free world, President Obama also has another important job: being Sasha and Malia’s dad. As both POTUS and the dad-in-chief, it’s safe to say that he’s said more than his fair share of corny jokes (dad jokes, if you will), but it turns out that not all of his audience members are amused.
