Cue the outrage

The President went onto Jimmy Fallon’s show, taping last night in North Carolina, and did something that you don’t usually see Presidents do. Cue the outrage.

Oh — and if you have any outrage left: unless Congress acts as the President requests, student loan rates are set to double this summer.  So much for social mobility, y’all.

Jimmy Fallon and President Obama "slow jam the news."

Jimmy Fallon and President Obama tell students that interest on their student loans is about to double unless Congress acts. Cue the outrage.


About Greg Diamond

Worker's rights attorney now moving into "good governance" litigation. North Vice Chair of Democratic Party of Orange County and occasional candidate. Proud to be prolix. Unless otherwise specifically stated, his writings never speak for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. He tries to either suppress or openly acknowledge his partisan, issue, ideological, and "good government" biases in most of his writing here. If you have a question about any particular writing, just ask him about it and (unless you are an pseudonymous troll) he will probably answer you at painful length. He lives in Brea but generally doesn't blog about it. A family member works as a campaign treasurer for Wendy Gabriella in AD-73; he doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. He does advise some campaigns informally and without compensation, although in 2014 he may receive some compensation for campaign consulting and fundraising for the campaign of Jorge Lopez for Orange County Assessor.
