There’s no one in doubt of President Obama’s ease with public. He is a president who is very sure on how to deal with his legions of adoring fans – and this video is no different.
At a campaign even in Maryland, YouTube user, Faiibaii8 – Stephon, had the honor of meeting the US president Barack Obama. Standing just a few feet away from the President, where he was greeting and thanking the crowd for coming was Stephon. What happened next is anyone’s guess.
The Prince George’s community college student looked straight at Obama and gestured in his first language: American Sign Language, ‘I am proud of you’. The coolest President in the world almost immediately signed back with a ‘Thank You’.
The gesture was so immediate, it was almost involuntary. This is probably one of the reasons that makes President Obama such a hit with the crowd.
