VIDEO: President Barack Obama On Kiss Cam With Michelle

The Kiss Cam can be embarrassing for anyone at any sporting event, even for the Leader of the Free World. Last night, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama took to their courtside seats to check out Team USA basketball on a major night out with Vice-President Joe Biden also in tow. Apparently the two were struck by the awkwardness of the first kiss cam moment, so they were given the rare second chance.

SB Nation's Andrew Sharp noted, "I'm sure people will complain it was staged, but of course it was. The second the first Kiss Cam was over, we knew they'd do another one. Being President of the United States means you're one of the only people in the country who can botch the Kiss Cam, then say, 'You know what? Let's go ahead and run that back' So they did, and the crowd ended the game chanting 'Four more years.'"
