Coolest president ever Barack Obama somehow managed to get even cooler on Monday. Lin-Manuel Miranda and the cast of his hit Broadway musical Hamilton stopped by Washington, D.C., for a special White House performance when POTUS decided to take things to the next level. Miranda and Obama met in the Rose Garden for, of all things, an impromptu freestyle rap about the government. When in Rome, right?

With the help of a single drummer, the president held up cue cards with words and phrases like "Congress," "carbon footprint," "Nasa," and even one that said "Sunny and Bo," while Miranda spun each one into a freestyle rap. At one point he managed to rhyme "supreme court" with "book report." Consider us impressed!
