Barack Obama Lists Fleabag As A Favourite And Fans Make Awkward Link
| Last updated
Fleabag fans, cast your mind back to episode one - around four minutes in - Phoebe Waller-Bridge's character can be seen masturbating to the very man who has listed the series as one of his 'favourites'.
Yes, that's right - Barack Obama himself has written that Fleabag has been one of the best when it comes to 2019 (kudos to Waller-Bridge and crew).
Next up are my favorite movies and TV shows of 2019. Of course, there's also American Factory, a film from our own production company, Higher Ground, that was recently shortlisted for an Oscar. Here's the full list: pic.twitter.com/PEcgwotcxm

Yes, the 58-year-old has specified that he's talking about Season 2, however, he doesn't seem like the kinda bloke that would start something halfway through, does he now? Plus, he is talking about 2019 and season one dropped in 2016 so y'know - the guy ain't daft.
Which can only mean one thing, Barack Obama, the former President of the United States of America has watched someone get themselves off (well, almost) to one of his speeches. Wow.
As expected, fans quickly picked up on the not-so-subtle link between the show and the Obama.

I couldn't be more delighted by today's news that Barack Obama not only watched an episode of British TV where the main character sorted herself out to one of his speeches, but then put it on his Best of 2019 list. #Fleabag #BarackObama pic.twitter.com/FGl2F9s7Ta

President Barack Obama must have also loved Fleabag: Season 1 when Phoebe Waller-Bridge masturbated to his speech. This is the unexpected content that we needed in 2019. pic.twitter.com/XnMHZji7Lz

Another fan wrote: "Barack Obama watching Fleabag means that he has seen someone masturbate to his speeches and that makes me truly happy."
Someone else commented: "I wanna give everything I have to watch Barack Obama watch the first minute of Fleabag where the main character touches herself watching him. Everything I have!"
This is absolute gold. Barack Obama, what a guy.
