President Barack Obama teaches a Marquette University student Tuesday by "slow jamming" his message.
Obama announced his re-election campaign in 2011: social media helped him spread awareness. But the skit Obama participated in with Jimmy Fallon was not only an entertaining way to gain publicity and votes: it also informed the public about Obama's advocacy against increasing interest rates on Stafford loans.
Lynn Bias, a journalism major in the Diederich College of Communication, voiced her opinion on the video.
"Oh good Lord no," Bias said. "You know this was all for publicity."
But Bias also said the video was entertaining and educational.
"I loved the 'Oh Pell No' joke: I also hope that I don't run into having to pay any loans in the future."
