"But the prospect of leaving the White House is a mixed bag. You might have heard that someone jumped the White House fence last week, but I have to give the Secret Service credit. They found Michelle (US first lady) and brought her back. She's safe back at home now. It's only nine more months, baby. Settle down," the US President joked.

The last time I was this high I was trying to decide on my major."
