‘Commander in Preach!’: Obama Slow Jams the News With Jimmy Fallon
President Obama made an appearance on The Tonight Show last night in a kind of legacy throwback tour as his presidency enters its last few months. Obama talked about the current state of politics and played one of Jimmy Fallon‘s favorite games, but there was no way that they couldn’t revive a show tradition they started together four years ago.
With Fallon and The Roots backing him up, Obama “slow jammed the news” once again as he went through a laundry list of his accomplishments and hopes for the future. While the show was taped before he officially endorsed Hillary Clinton yesterday, Tariq Trotter offered a glimpse into the future when he sang “He’s created lots of jobs for you and me, and he’s got one more left for Hillary.”
Of course, Donald Trump wasn’t spared. Fallon asked Obama mid-song about whether he’s kept up with the election and his critiques form the conservative corner. The president said he did not, mostly because “I have been watching my new favorite show, ‘Orange Is Not the New Black.’”
In the end, Obama promised that Clinton wouldn’t necessarily be his third-term successor if she manages to actually win the presidency. “There will be no third term,” Obama said. “I can’t stay forever. Besides, Daddy’s got a Hawaiian vacation booked in about 223 days. But who’s counting?”
