What if you woke up one morning and looked like the most powerful man in the world?

Like most Americans, Louis Ortiz was unemployed in 2008. Unlike most Americans, his face was on the front page of every newspaper. Well, not his face exactly — just an as-yet-unknown contender named Barack Obama with whom Ortiz shared an uncanny resemblance. After Obama won, Ortiz became a full-time presidential impersonator known as “Bronx Obama.” We brought him on Midterm Mayhem to ask whether he hangs out with real politicians (wisely, no) and whether Obama follows him on Twitter (yes!).

Watch “Midterm Mayhem” LIVE Sunday-Thursday at 9:30 p.m. ET / 6:30 p.m. PT on the Fusion network and streaming at fusion.net/mayhem.
