Obama Has Perfect Reaction To Woman's Jealous Boyfriend

President Barack Obama had no problems casting his ballot for the midterm elections on Monday, but he did run into another problem at the voting booth -- a jealous boyfriend.

According to CNN, Obama stood next to Aia Cooper as he voted in Chicago. While the two were voting, Cooper's fiancé Mike Jones warned the president: "Don't touch my girlfriend."

"You know, I really wasn't planning on it," Obama replied.

Cooper, clearly embarrassed, apologized to the president, saying, "Please excuse him." But Obama called out Cooper's fiancé, calling him "an example of a brother just embarrassing you for no reason, just for no reason whatsoever."

Obama told Cooper she'd go home to tell her friends and family, "I can't believe Mike, he's such a fool."

"He really is," Cooper agreed, laughing.

Obama didn't totally pile on the criticism. He joked that despite the comment, "Mike seems like a decent guy."
