The former president revealed he can still get buckets by waving a three-point corner kick at a gym in Flint, Michigan on Saturday while on the campaign trail for Joe Biden, his former vice president.
“That’s what I do,” cries Obama after nailing the three of them before lowering his “VOTE” mask and screaming again, “That’s what I’m doing!”
The video was tweeted by Olivia Raisner, the traveling digital director for the Biden campaign.
Obama also pocketed his basketball skills and tweeted the video of the casual three-pointer from his own account saying “Shoot your shot.”
In the video, the gym helpers seem stunned that Obama pinned the three of them down and one of them yelled, “Go away!”
“Whoa,” says a masked Biden as the duo leave the gym.

You do that, right? Ok, ok, I see. All money!” Varsity basketball at Hawaii’s Punahou School played basketball regularly during his rise to political notoriety, including serving as a United States Senator where he hit a three in front of troops in Kuwait. Obama continued to play basketball during his tenure at the White House, including A Game in 2010 where the President caught a “bad elbow” that forced him to get stitches. Obama recently joked that his basketball game got worse as he got older.
Raisner’s contribution to the video of Obama’s recording in Michigan received over 7.4 million views at 10 p.m. on Saturday night.
