Template:South Park character Barack Obama was the 44th President of the United States and the first African-American to hold the office, serving from 2009 until 2017. He is a member of the U.S. Democratic Party. He was succeeded by President Herbert Garrison after the 2016 U.S. Presidential election.
He is a member of a professional thief organization. He and John McCain are both in this organization and both ran for presidency. If either won, they would have gained access to the presidential escape tunnel. This would allow them to execute an intricate plot to steal the Hope Diamond at the Smithsonian Institute. They succeed in their efforts and fake their deaths, with the help of Ike Broflovski. They then planned to travel to an exotic island to live out the remainder of their lives. Obama, however, decides to actually give the presidency a chance along with Michelle Obama.
President Obama is one of the lead members in the elaborate conspiracy to justify the actions of rich, successful men, who have been caught cheating on their spouses. He notes that the men were under the control of a Wizard Alien, causing them to be addicted to sex.
When Kyle Broflovski suggests that they need to learn to control their impulses, he and Butters Stotch are taken to the alien at Independence Hall. Once there, Barack Obama ushers the boys to kill the alien, who in reality was a soldier wearing a costume. After the soldier is killed, Obama gives a speech reassuring others that if a rich, successful man is caught cheating, it would be because of a Wizard Alien.
President Obama told the public that Funnybot had planned an attack against the United States, using its and Russia's missiles. He stated that he would spend his last few hours on earth watching "Madea" movies with his family. He stated that he was embarrassed, but he couldn't help it.
President Obama makes a deal with General Tso to in order to get re-elected. The deal was that if Obama is re-elected, the Chinese will get the rights to Star Wars. General Tso makes a deal with Eric Cartman, which was that if Cartman steals the ballots and gives them to General Tso at Red Lobster, then Cartman would get a role in the next Star Wars film. However, the deal is postponed due to Kyle Broflovski and others trying to stop Cartman. Cartman hides the ballots at a Hummer dealership. In the end, to protect the Star Wars franchise, everyone decides to burn the ballots, guaranteeing Obama a second term in office.
