Obama’s WHCD Monologue Now Top C-SPAN YouTube Video of All-Time

C-SPAN said its YouTube video of President Barack Obama’s appearance at the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Dinner is now its most viewed ever, approaching 6 million views at the time of this post, despite only being available since late Saturday night.

The public-affairs network’s previous No. 1 YouTube video, of Obama’s inauguration speech in January 2009, has totaled more than 4.7 million views in two-and-a-half years.

Obama used the WHCD pulpit to poke fun at the debate over his birth certificate, entering to “I Am a Real American” by Rick Derringer and showing footage from The Lion King as his “birth video.”
