** The song says "And her father say I remind him of Obama". We don't need to infer from there that Obama is the president. We can only infer that he's a known public person, a [[RichardNixontheUsedCarSalesman used cars salesma]] or something like that.

** In ''Thor'', he couldn't lift Mjölnir due to Odin stripping him of his power and enchanting Mjölnir so that it could only be lifted by someone worthy. Which was amply explained in that film, so I assume you mean instead ''The Avengers'', but Thor's never shown unable to lift Mjölnir during that movie. After his fall from the helicarrier he seems to take a moment to psych himself up before trying to pick it up, as though afraid he's somehow become unworthy again; then he picks it up with no difficulty.

** Captain America discovered that Mathew Ellis was the main leader of HYDRA, but Ellis commited suicide before being captured. His vicepresident Obama was appointed president as a result. Captain America was then summoned across space and time by Rick Jones to [[ComicBook/AvengersForever fight against Kang, Immortus and the Time Keepers, and save all the multiverse from destruction]], and then returned to the present with VictoryGuidedAmnesia. Ah, but all of that took place [[NoodleIncident offscreen]], of course.

** Universal doesn't hold any rights to any Marvel characters. However, they do have the right of first refusal on the distribution of any Hulk movies - that is, if Marvel put out The Incredible Hulk 2, Universal would be the first choice of studio to distribute the movie (which Disney would want to avoid, because then Universal would profit). This is due to Marvel Studios' origins, since they were formed purely as a movie-making company, which needed other studios to distribute their movies for them. Since their purchase by Disney prior to the release of Iron Man 2, all MCU movies have been distributed by Disney themselves, but the deal made with Universal has not been reversed. So basically, the MCU is free to use any Hulk characters like Bruce Banner, Talbot, or She-Hulk... just as long as they aren't making a Hulk movie. It's not clear whether the same would apply to a She-Hulk movie or TV series.

** In all reality they probably just didn't think to check the lyrics for discrepancies. I doubt they'll go into depth about previous political campaigns in the shows or movies, so an official answer is pretty slim. But its easy to figure with all the crazyness of the MCU going on, a relatively inexperienced politician like Obama wouldn't have been elected.

[[folder: The President in MCU]]
* 'Long live the Cheif', a rap song performed in Netflix's Luke Cage mentions Obama, but Ironman 3 and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. confirms the president is a man named Mathew Ellis. So in the MCU is Obama a man who ran and lost, did he lose in 2012? Or is this just an obvious case of the writers of the show not checking the lyrics of a song for discrepancies with their greater narrative?
