Justin Bieber Challenges Barack Obama – the ALS Ice-Bucket Challenge -VIDEO
Justin Bieber has joined the growing number of famous public figures that have accepted the ALS ice-bucket challenge — and has challenged President Obama.
The challenge came from his manager Scooter Braun, who also nominated his brother Adam Braun and Usher.
“All right Scooter, I accept your ice-bucket challenge. Now I nominate Ellen, Barack Obama, and who else? Chris D’Elia,” said JB, who then dumps the pot of water over his head.

The ice-bucket challenge is a social-media phenomenon intended to raise money for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Participants in the challenge have 24 hours to either donate $100 to fight ALS, or dump a bucket of ice water over their heads. People who complete the challenge can nominate three others to take part.
Dozens of other celebrities, politicians, athletes and entrepreneurs have already taken the challenge, including Taylor Swift and Jaime King, Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato, Justin Timberlake, Ansel Elgort, Lil Wayne, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Microsoft’s Bill Gates and many more.
On Aug. 17, The ALS Association announced it had received $13.3 million in donations .
