Can someone check on Joyce? A big Barack Obama fan was recently left speechless by quite the surprise coordinated on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The retired auditor thought she was tuning in to watch a pretaped clip of the former president reading an excerpt from his new book, A Promised Land, except she was actually video chatting with him one-on-one. From the jump, it seemed Joyce had her suspicions, but she really realized what was going on when Barack read the line, “The retired auditors are actually my favorite.”
Joyce understandably freaked out, prompting Barack to say, “You OK? Joyce, you doing OK?” He later added, “We’re not getting a lot out of Joyce in terms of words.” The sweet surprise also came shortly after Barack joined YouTube stars Fred and Tim Williams as they reviewed Bob Dylan’s “The Times They Are A-Changin'” — featured on the Promised Land companion playlist. Can this book tour just never end? Watch the latest gift it’s granted us above.
