*Barack Obama was in the barber’s chair for a special episode of HBO’s “The Shop: Uninterrupted,” the chat show from LeBron James and his childhood friend and production partner Maverick Carter.
No HBO? No problem. The premium channel is offering the special free to non-subscribers on YouTube and HBO’s website from Oct. 31 to Nov. 28.
Obama sat down for a socially-distanced conversation with the newly-minted NBA champion and Carter about a handful of topics surrounding the current social and political climate. During the episode, which aired on Oct. 29, the trio discussed the NBA’s Black Lives Matter activity, Obama’s counsel during decisions about whether or not to continue playing amid ongoing incidents of racial police killings, and other topics.
James revealed that his mother, Gloria, sent him a video of her wearing an “I Voted” sticker after casting her ballot, he believes for the first time in her life.
“You tell her I’m proud of her,” Obama said. “You tell her Barack and Michelle give her much love and respect for that.”
