‘Don’t touch my girlfriend!’ Man warns President Obama

President Obama encountered 'jealous' boyfriend while casting his vote in Chicago

Some men just constantly feel the urge to let the public know that that girl is theirs and theirs only, especially in the presence of a threatening competition – the president of the United States for example.
President Barack Obama had an encounter with a jealous boyfriend as he was casting his ballot in Chicago this week.

Captured on video, President Obama was calmly standing behind the voting booth, minding his own business, when a young man walked by and warned him “Mr. President, don’t touch my girlfriend.”

The man, identified by ABC 7 as Mike Jones, was talking about the woman, Aia Cooper, who happened to be standing in the booth next to President Obama.

“I really wasn’t planning on it,” said Obama, without looking up from his ballot to a visibly- embarrassed Cooper.

Cooper was quick to apologize to the president on behalf of her boyfriend Mike.

“There’s an example of a brother just embarrassing you, just for now reason whatsoever,” said Obama jokingly.
But after a brief conversation, the president decided to have the last laugh.

“Give me a kiss and give him something to talk about,” he said to Cooper while giving her a hug and a peck on the cheek.

“Now, he is really jealous,” he said.
