President Barack Obama, who was in Chicago on Monday, October 20, 2014 to drum up support and vote for incumbent governor, Pat Quinn, who is having a torrid time seeking re-election when he was told “Mr. President, don’t touch my girlfriend,” by Mike Jones, whose fiance Aia Cooper was standing next to the president.
According to a CNN report, President Obama replied: “I really wasn’t planning on it,” later joking that Jones was “an example of a brother just embarrassing you for no reason.”
Cooper apologized on behalf of her boyfriend, telling President Obama that she knew her boyfriend would make a witty comment.
She said: “I can’t believe Mike, he is such a fool.”
President Obama eventually got one over Jones, hugging and kissing his fiance after voting.
“On the cheek, just the cheek — please, Michelle, don’t come after me — just the cheek!” Cooper said after voting.
“Now, he’s really jealous,” Obama said to Cooper.
