Getting President Barack Obama to say whatever you want him to say is now possible. At least in the world of digital make-believe. You can even get Obama to endorse Donald Trump as the next U.S. president as opposed to Hillary Clinton, via the new website “Talk Obama To Me.”
From quoting Shakespeare to telling jokes, I guess the possibilities are endless.
Watch one example here where we have the president say something nice about our site:

You just type in what you need the POTUS to say (you have a 180 character limit) and presto it’ll be processed, and then the page will refresh with the video for you. You can also download the video and put it on your social media account, so you could even have the president wish someone a happy birthday.
The results can sometimes be a bit hit and miss depending on the words you choose. It’s not a perfected system yet, but you can have some fun with it, no matter what political leaning you may have.
I wonder how a Trump version of this would go?
