Macklemore And Janelle Monae Stan Over President Obama's State Of The Union Mic Drop

Comedian Patton Oswalt liked it, he liked it A LOT.

The annual State of the Union address to Congress is a pretty scripted affair. There's the ceremonial entrances, the obligatory counting of who clapped/stood up and who didn't and, of course, plenty of jokes about the sour look on House Majority Leader John Boehner's face.

But in the one unscripted moment on Tuesday night, President Obama essentially dropped the mic on the Republican party by reciting the written line "I have no campaigns to run," then adding, after a smattering of applause, "I know because I won both of them."

That video, of course, blew up instantly, and some celebs just couldn't help weigh in.

  2. Janelle Monaé
