Word on the street is that President Obama wants to move to New York City when he’s finally allowed to leave D.C. We approve, and Jay Pharaoh, Saturday Night Live’s Obama, agrees, “I think he’d do great here.” Pharaoh, however, fears for his commute. “I mean, every time he comes in there’s like mad traffic, so I’m like, I think I might move,” he told Intelligencer at last night’s FIJI Water and Entertainment Weekly–sponsored screening of 22 Jump Street. “On any given day, three, four o’clock it’s horrible anywhere in the city. And I’m in the city so I’m like, ‘Dude, don’t’ — he needs to go to like Staten Island or something. Tell him to go to Brooklyn. But, like, don’t be in the city.” The Gap, luckily, delivers.
