'Hamilton' star Lin-Manuel Miranda freestyle rapped with Obama, because he's no longer running for office and why not.
Lin-Manuel Miranda, certified genius and creator/star of the hip hop musical Hamilton, freestyled with the leader of the Free World. The cast of Hamilton visited the White House on Monday, Obama using his executive privilege to bring the cast of the sold-out show right to him.
Obama invited Miranda out to the Rose Garden to freestyle rap while Obama stood there holding cue card prompts. It's Kanye West meets The West Wing.
According to the White House, the Obamas hosted the cast along with a crew of local students "for a daylong celebration of the arts in America." People got excited.
