BREAKING: READ THE MUELLER REPORT

Watch: 2016 Obama Gives Some Friendly Advice to 2009 Obama

In the waning months of his administration, present-day Barack Obama sat down with 2009 Barack Obama.

Readers will recall the ’09 Obama as the fresh-faced former U.S. Senator with high-minded aspiration to bring about a post-partisan Washington. His gray-haired counterpart is a bit less optimistic, cautioning that one would inevitably “fall short of the ideal.”

“Always use Purell,” outgoing Obama advised. “You’re going to be shaking a lot of hands.”

You can watch the segment, which aired on The Tonight Show Friday, above.
