At an early voting booth in Chicago a woman, Aia Cooper and her boyfriend, Mike Jones were surprised and shocked when President Obama voted at a booth next to theirs. Jokingly, while exiting and after placing his vote, Mike Jones said to the president, “Don’t touch my girlfriend.”
Things could have went either way from there, but President Obama took the comment in stride and joked back with the couple, ending with a kiss on the cheek and hug to Aia. It was all in fun, but a bold move by the Chicago native. CNN took the time to interview the couple about the surprise encounter with the President of the United States.
