President Obama Has Some Words For Aziz Ansari

Aziz Ansari appeared at a fundraiser last night for President Obama, and as this video from BuzzFeed proves, the comedian found a far more appreciative audience than he did at Sundance. "Now this is big because Malia is a big Parks and Recreation fan," said Obama. "So having Aziz here is, like, the only thing she thinks is worth me doing." Still, the president wasn't afraid to embarrass his daughter by putting Ansari on blast: "I know he's backstage, but I just want to remind him: I've got more Twitter followers than you, man." Burn-ish! "I just want to keep him humble and hungry," Obama explained. "We all need somebody who does that! Fortunately, I have Michelle."
