It’s always fun to watch politicians attempt to be hip and relevant.
And by fun, I mean absolutely cringeworthy – but also hilarious.
This time, it was Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer.
The billionaire joined rapper Juvenile onstage at a South Carolina campaign event at historically black Allen University, where Steyer showed off his white boy moves to Juvenile’s 1999 hit “Back That Azz Up.”
I wonder if their kids were watching.
For his part, Tom poked fun at his own dancing:
“What I found in South Carolina is not just talent, – Not just my dancing,” he joked.
You know what? I kind of like these clips.
Yes, it’s awkward, and certainly has no bearing on Steyer’s ability to President, but he got up there and looks like he’s having a pretty good time.
What do you think?
The woman on the left holding her smartphone and dancing at least as awkwardly as Tom is his wife, Kat Taylor:
