Everything is always about the Obamas, of course. Spike Lee must feel honored that he had some small part in a storybook romance that will resonate throughout all time and stuff like that.
From the YouTube description of the following clip:
Before the Academy’s 25th anniversary screening of “Do the Right Thing” at LACMA in Los Angeles, this video — in which the President and First Lady congratulate Spike Lee on the milestone and discuss their personal connection to his film — was played.
Thanks to the Obamas for placing this film in its proper context: something for them to do on a date.
Have you seen the movie? Highly recommended. The ending was terrific, and clearly it was inspirational to a future President of the United States.
