Barack Obama Surprises Us + First Time Hearing Bob Dylan | BookTube Trailer

We listened to Bob Dylan, the 60’s counter-culture icon, after seeing his name mentioned in President Obama’s book A Promised Land. We also got to ask President Obama a few questions, and we'll ask him even more on the December episode of BookTube only on KGcode 12/16/20.

  • I love you guys - but WTF is up with KGcode ads now? Breaking in the middle of a freaking sublime song to show us an utterly wanky ad - no TWO utterly wanky ads. Way to ruin an experience. Anything I can do in settings to stop this abomination form happening? If not, anything the channel runners can do?

    • Okay - for anyone else having the same problem, I was able to disable ads in my browser. Great video, guys. I'm a big Dylan Fan and a big Obama fan. This had everything!

    • And 1 minute later, another freaking stupid irrelevant ad - though what ad could possibly be relevant enough to interrupt Prez Obama I can't even.

  • Would be cool if you guys reacted to *Mr. Brightside by The Killers* in honor for them hitting 1 Billion streams on Spotify as the first group from the 2000s to ever reach this accomplishment:)))

  • You guys are awesome. Been listening to you channel for a long time. A lot of the music were hits when I was growing up in the 70s - 80s and also listened to the music my Mom grew up with. I feel included. You don't smirk at it, you enjoy listening to the songs, even when you don't like it. THANK YOU and have a Healthy, Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Wow. With BLM I’ve been a more Ernest way...I have a lot to learn. Really didn’t know SO many suffer SO much because we have been divided. If we didn’t have the last pres I might never have known all these pretty horrific things happen every day (actual physical abuse, emotional abuse, mental anguish, spiritual loss). Now I know it’s a matter of days before a new bunch enter as government. I’m trying to get used to just breathing without intense anxiety upon waking each morning to some thing in the news, It’s gonna take time. I feel like we could have PTSD of some level (who kept up with daily news). Now I’m confident that you younger people will engage , will become present in the solution of all this discord. I’m hopeful we can save all living things (including the earth) as we change together into a loving 🥰 caring place for all. You two are SO awesome in presenting so many formats with your music. I listen to everything! LOVE ❤️ it. Thank you.

  • “A Promised Land” live up to the promise of being an inimitable pleasure trip through an unexplored path through a hidden landscape of what we call as USA. Wonderfully written, sincere and nuanced, with all Obama's selflessness and accuracy. Obama's word is straightforward, simple to understand, yet full of the fragrances of education. As an outsider, I Believe that his America is exactly what America be supposed to be and is also the America that I visualized in my mind. He is in fact one of the brightest alumni of Harvard From the Preface to 1st chapter bring out the spirit of a noble mind, genuinely caring man who wants to make an optimistic change in his life time and world we exist in. The phrases and portraits indicate who he really is as a genuine human being. As you go through the book , you can listen to Obama's voice and expression clearly. it seems he is speaking exactly to the reader with thoroughly Selected words. This book, and Michelle Obama’s book, overall are the two most inspiring volumes I have ever read out. Let us pray that upcoming Presidents have as much civility, morality, integrity and moral judgement, motivation for good! There is no wonder that it’s a no.1 Bestseller Book! It's an remarkable book. Nothing more needs to be said than this. I definitely recommend it to each and every person. and I am sure that u will not be disappointed after purchasing this incredible book. if u want to buy book online from amazon here is the link

  • Wow! Just wow. What an honor to have a president recognize what you're doing. I was smiling so much it hurt. But what he said is so true...learn about others with curiosity and an open mind, explore other cultures, music, food, history; which is what makes us such a great nation. I was so shocked when he mentioned Dylan! He's my husband's #1 and I used his words to "The Wedding Song" as my vows 35 yrs ago. He recorded so many songs about racial injustice, civil rights and anti war. One of the best is "Hurricane", a true story that Mr. D had a big part in correcting. I love you guys! Stay safe.

  • That was outstanding! I don’t know if it's on the president's playlist, but given the title of his book, listen to "The Promised Land" by Bruce Springsteen. I know you've listened to a few of his songs already, but give that one a listen. What you're doing brings people together. Keep up the good work!

  • Was Obama’s appearance really a surprise? If not, why fake it? Maybe he popped in and then they re-enacted the surprise... ? 🤷🏽‍♀️ He definitely got good plugs in for his book! Sounds like a good read.

  • On the subject of Dylan, try Subterranean Homesick Blues. To me, it's hip hop before there was hip hop. And that's astonishing Barack Obama would take time to do this. Truly an amazing human being. Miss him and his leadership so much.

  • That was amazing guys. I've only commented a couple times, but I want to share that I lost one of my twin boys, Dylan, who was a terrific musician, almost 3 weeks ago. He was 32. It's been so hard not having that other shoulder to put my arm around. Watching you boys makes me smile...that twin thing is so real. Love to y'all, and be thankful for each other this year, and always.

  • I'm not a republican nor democrat so I can't say I was favorable towards Obama's presidency any more than trumps but I will say that regardless of whether you believed in Obama's policies, you can't deny the class, coolness and professionalism he displayed as president. At the end of the day, no matter what a person's beliefs are- I only see them for their actions and how they carry themselves.
