But reportedly after offering a wave in the arena, Obama himself got a cheer from Princeton fans — and one he seemed visibly embarrassed over: "Four more years! Four more years!"
Hearing the chant, a smiling Obama tossed a gaze to the vocal portion of the crowd and immediately invoked the "cut it out" gesture, slicing his hand in front of his neck:
The chant wasn't lost on reporters gathered for the proceedings:
Pool: The Princeton student contingent then changed “4 More Years! 4 More Years!” That had Obama smiling and drawing a hand across his neck— Zeke Miller (@ZekeJMiller) March 21, 2015
AND the Princeton student section just got a "4 MORE YEARS!!! 4 MORE YEARS!!!" chant going for Obama. Not legal but...he enjoyed— Brian McNally (@bmcnally14)March 21, 2015
No third term: Princeton student body chanted "Four More Years!" at Obama after he waved. He then smiled and drew his hand across this neck.— Steven Dennis (@StevenTDennis) March 21, 2015
Of course, the 22nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution sets a two-term limit on presidents; Obama's in his second term.
Anyway, here's the clip. The chant can be heard about 40 seconds into the video:
