Obama’s 50th Birthday: Waiting for AARP

Jennifer Hudson led a crowd of more than 2,000 in a rendition of “Happy Birthday” as President Obama marked his 50th birthday in a fundraiser at Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom.

A video of the evening is below, but Obama got some of his biggest laughs with this line: “It’s true that I turn 50 tomorrow, which means that by the time I wake up, I’ll have an e-mail from AARP, asking me to call President Obama and tell him to protect Medicare.”
