Watch President Barack Obama imitate Richard Sherman

New, comments

Disrespect the president and he'll call you out.

Richard Sherman became a sensation overnight when he called out Michael Crabtree in an emotional postgame interview following the Seahawks' win over the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game. You already knew that, but did you know that his rant was so far-reaching that even President Barack Obama took notice?

President Obama took to the podium at the White House Correspondents' Dinner and showed off his relaxed side. The president said he "sometimes feels disrespected by reporters" so he wanted some advice on how to handle them from the All-Pro cornerback, who was in attendance. In the end, Obama had one guy in his crosshairs: Jake Tapper of CNN.

"I'm the best president in the game!"

We're fairly certain the game only has one president, but well played nonetheless.
