Leslie Odom Jr. Sings What He Imagines to Be Pres. Obama's Innermost Thoughts on the Election

Sara Bareilles pens a song featuring "Hamilton" star Leslie Odom Jr. that imagines President Obama's perspective on the 2016 election.

The 2016 election pushes full steam ahead, with two presidential candidates that have continued to cause a huge stir in the media as they butt heads on social issues and political policies while running neck and neck in the national polls. While our country seems to be on the verge of complete political chaos and social turmoil, the American people are nervous, excited and on edge to find out who will win this election.

Many Americans have created videos and online forums or have rallied to share their opinions and feelings about the Clinton and Trump campaigns, but does anyone ever wonder what President Obama thinks of all this?

Lucky for us, songwriter Sara Bareilles and Hamilton's Leslie Odom Jr. teamed up on the song "Seriously" (written by Bareilles and performed by Odom), which lets us explore what they imagine Barack Obama's perspective on the current state of the election might be after serving our country for eight great years.
