What. A. Surprise.

Rep. John Dingell of Michigan has announced that he’ll retire at the end of this term after 58 years in Congress. President Obama wanted everybody to know that the greatest thing Dingell ever did in those nearly six decades was to help ram through Obamacare.!/Simas44/status/438025833593454593

“Won’t lose everything,” except maybe for their previous health plan.

However, Obama saying Obamacare was Dingell’s most remarkable accomplishment could just be an attempt to pin the blame on the retiring congressman. You never know.

“I’m gonna blast off in a second,”he added. 

The video has since gone viral over the week with over 1.1 million views.

When he finished, he gestured to the Queen, but she and everyone else didn’t react at all-the ever important song was playing. So the President of America looked like a fool, and only after the song was there an awkward recognition of the toast.
