Obama To Sit Down With Leno!

| Filed under: TV NewsBarack ObamaJay Leno


Set your DVRs!

President Barack Obama will be swinging through the set of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Thursday night!

Obama's appearance will make history because he'll be the first president in office to ever make an in-studio appearance on a late-night talk show!

Previous presidential television appearances have included Bush popping up in a segment for Deal or No Deal last year and President Clinton making a cameo in the TV movie A Child's Wish in 1997, but no president has ever had the guts to brave the late-night hot seat!

Can't wait!!!

    should the president of the united states be hamming it up with jay leno late night? hmmmm doesnt seem like a great idea

  7. 7

    Seriously?! Apparently figuring out what to do with our economy and the two wars overseas can sit on the back burner while he tries to keep his "celebrity" status. What a waste of tax payer dollars. I'm severely disappointed…

  8. 8

    WOW - maybe because those other presidents had better things to do. like run the country!

  9. 9

    I definitely remember Clinton playing saxophone on The Arsenial Hall show

    ooooh, sounds like some good fun! Ill be watching

  13. 13

    You know you are going to miss Harry. And all the fisting talk from BBD. You are pathetic Mario.

  14. 14

    WTF! Leno…really. Leno sucks! I love that Obama is doing this but Leno..ugh. Obama should have chosen Letteman!

  15. 15

    Its win-win for both. Obama gets a large audience and Leno historically is respectful to his guests (Leno is NOT a journalist but a comedian).

  16. 16

    yeah, because Leno asks the hard questions. I think the country is needing running over his ego needing stroking. Bad idea Hussein

  17. 17

    Re: LizardKinG – Shocker!! seriously move on, get a life, who has time for this shit….loser

  18. 18

    It's not about having the guts to do it….shouldn't he be actually doing his job instead of doing the talk show circuit?? Aren't we in a crisis??! And our president's priority is to go on a TV show?! Really disappointing and extremely inappropriate, given what is on his plate.

  19. 19

    its proven how humanly the president is :D cooool

  20. 20

    BO can't do business in Washington D.C - can only do business at NBC!

    It's OK asshole, our life savings wiped out, HIGHER taxes, our home value in the toilet - keep going to Hollywood you FRAUD.


  21. 21

    What the hell is My President doing now? Leno suxs hard.

  22. 22

    I'm all for transparent government (whatever the fuck that means), but c'mon, the PRESIDENT? One or the other, dude, celebrity or PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. I'm having a hard time figuring out if he's here to help the country (if anyone can, that is), or here to set the groundwork for his life after the presidency. Disappointing, at best.

  23. 23

    Obama is such a Douche Bag. Thatnk God less that 4 more years of his BS

  24. 24

    Re: M*I*A*R – yeah you know you like the fist! who doesn't now and then stop being a prud!

    Re: SassySadie – go die whore, seriously how long hav u been on here newbie! go find a dick,suck it and die!

  27. 27

    To all the kids under 25 - since you live at home with mom and dad - or go to college - wait until each one of you have to go a out and buy a home, get a job, ya know grow up - also, remember your parents who can't find jobs, pay the higher taxes, or lose their homes - turn off your Ipods, pick up a newspaper AND READ - those who say “how cool!, I'm watching” it's OBVIOUS you don't work, don't own a home, or live in the real world.

    WAKE UP - the guy's a FRAUD!

    JulesinSD B.O.~He Stink's you a fucking retard u dirty whore douche ! i'm 25 and I hope you die for republican ways dip shit !!!!!!!! I hate republicans fuck off and die!

  31. 31

    I wonder if Obama will bring his brain…um, I mean teleprompter. Seriously though, Obama is ridiculous. This shit is what our almighty beacon of hope and change is doing for our country? Yukking it up on late night television? Jesus. Why anyone voted for this looter is beyond me. Not loser, LOOTER.

  32. 32

    I know we've had to live under a monarchy for the past 8 years, but that doesn't make the present president a king. He should be able to be human. Bush didn't even know how to be human. I assume what little humanity he had before the presidency was sucked out by the demon cheney and the puppeteer known as the GOP.

    But that's to be expected. You can't have any connection with humans if you're going to be authorizing torture and murder.

  33. 33

    I agree that Letterman is a better interviewer than Leno but Leno has a better opening monalogue. Either way, Obama is trying to be a rock star, not a president.

    Re: pinkhotluv – Oh, another BO supporter flexing their intellectual muscle - Go ask Mom for your allowance you 10 year old and stop playing on the computer.

    Re: Cattac – Take a look - how is this FUCK you defend any different THAN BUSH? He's WORSE - but since you don't own a fucking thing - what do care?

    $660 Million Dollars getting himself elected
    $170 Million dollars for his Inauguration (Coronation)
    We also never heard how many more millions it will take to
    re-sod the Mall the BO supporters trashed, but hey,
    we the taxpayers, (who didn't vote for the clown) don't mind!
    Once Elected Obamanation signed us up for:
    $787 BILLION dollars Stimulus Bill
    $410 BILLION dollar OMNIBUS Bill
    $634 Million Dollar “down payment” to fix Healthcare
    $75 BILLION dollar Rescue for distressed mortgages
    $2 BILLION “American Recovery & Reinvestment
    $ 900 Million to the Palestinians
    ($300 Million to “Humanitarian efforts” $400 mil for “Reform & Development”
    Funneled through non-government agencies a.k.a HAMASS a Terrorists Organization)

    Stimulus ll is in the works per Nancy Pelousi 3/13

    barky's #s must be really tanking when he's out "on tour"… now that america got it out of its system and "proved" it's not a racist country, can we elect someone who knows what the fuck s/he is doing next time?

  37. 37

    FUCK OBAMA. And yes this is coming from a GAY man!!!! I am glad this his focus is on the talk show circuit and not our Economy. What a fucking anti gay marriage douche bag. He is a JOKE. Why people have any faith in him is beyond me.

  38. 38



  39. 39

    fuck obama. he cares more about his fucking celebrity status than the country. go do your job, you asshole.

    What about President Richard Nixon on Laugh In?

    Re: Brandonlk – Brandon, I love you. Can I be your fag hag????

  42. 42

    Late night SOC IAL ISM. How perfect

  43. 43

    JulesSin maybe you should try not insulting people and instead using some logic. First of all, those higher taxes you mentioned…aren't affectiong like 95% of Americans. God forbid the do-nothing celebs and wealthy CEOs that are crashing our businesses should pay a little more tax to help out all the little people they're screwing.

    Second, you know those "kids" under 25 that you keep bashing? Yeah those are the ones dying by the thousands in a little war called IRAQ that your beloved Repubs got us into.

  44. 44

    Count me in. Im there.

  45. 45

    Will 3 Teleprompters provide enough redundancy? There is a reason why other Presidents didn't do late Night. They were smart enoughto know that we are sick of them.

  46. 46

    Perez is leaving out important little details. If I went by Perez's story I'd be like, "Obama is wasting time", but if I read, oh I dunno, actual news sites, I'd know why Obama is going to be on Leno.

    Obama is touring SoCal this week. Wednesday he'll be doing a town hall meeting in Costa Mesa, this will open to the public and the media. After that he's off to some electric auto type of business in Pomona, this will be closed to the public but not the media. Then he'll be doing another meeting in LA for the public and the media, and then he's finishing it off with Leno.

    The point is, he's coming to SoCal to talk about his plans with ya know, the people he works for. The Leno show is just a last minute stop. And he may as well take advantage of things such as talk shows, twitter, and what have you. Most americans are obviously to lazy to tune into the news, but they love their profile sites and talk shows, so he's going to use to those to reach the masses.

    Republicans of course will pick on this.. but what do you expect from a party that is known for having a super low iq?

  47. 47

    wildly inappropriate. no. high-level elected official should not be on lightweight frippery show…Meet the Press, maybe; but the Tonight Show? no. Leno is a horrible interviewer, but even if he weren't, no, this is not the right venue. No. Not Ellen, not Oprah, not Conan, not The View, not …well, I think "Dirty Jobs" would be a good one, actually. but I dare him.

    no. no one-liners with Leno and Kevin (if he fist-touches Kevin, puhleeeeze)

  48. 48

    this will be great! leno's amazing!

  49. 49

    Obama is cool like that. He should be on Conan, though.

  50. 50

    Re: Deviancy – If his PLAN is so good - why can't HE take it congress HIMSELF?

    The day I see the the BO Grassroots people knock on doors to get his 3.6 TRILLION dollar budget passed - is the day we'll see them step out of a welfare line.

    His media BLITZ WILL fail - and it will provide more AMMO for us. Besides, I could give a fuck about Democrats - they hate us - we hate them - We'll be fighting for whose in the middle.

  51. 51

    Re: MattInBaltimore – The 25 and under set who serve our country - god bless them - they actually work, and pay taxes - I'm referring to the lazy, uneducated dipshits who OWN nothing that they bused to the polls by the thousands to go vote- the kids in Iraq were busy paying taxes and working for BUSH - you better read more - we make FAR LESS than 200K a year and just got a notice of HIGHER property taxes - higher sales tax, higher water tax, and more butt fucking from the democrats to COME. Let alone my life savings that I WORKED MY ASS off for is cut in HALF - that's right HALF!

  52. 52

    Hey Matt, hot off the presses - those nice kids who served in Iraq and got wounded - BO WANTS THEM TO PAY FOR IT THEMSELVES - What a RAT FUCK!!!!!!

    Today: President Obama would like to force private insurance companies to pay for the treatment of military veterans who have suffered service-connected disabilities and injuries.


  53. 53

    Jay Leno is a dick sucker anyway its not like he is going to ask any pressing questions, hes just going to suck Baracks dick the entire interview and tell horrible jokes

  54. CaraC says – reply to this


    Obama is a Marxist destroying our country, our economy and our freedom. Go to Tea Party protests, support the eligiliblity lawsuits. If we don't stop him, our country will look like Cuba in a few years and we will be impoverished and enslaved to the state.

  55. 55

    Uh, it's the economy stupid.

  56. 56

    What's Obama selling now? Another stimulus package? Or is he just campaigning for 2012?

  57. 57

    Re: Mikey Glitter – he was NOT President at the time.

    If President Obama wants to go on a TV show perhaps he should choose something like Meet The Press and not a late night show. What's next…hosting the Oscars? Run the damn country, President Obama.

  61. 61

    poor boooooobama hasn't a clue that he has more important things to do…….
    sadly he is exactly what we deserve for electing a "community organizer" to turn things around
    poor thing is proves everyday how INCOMPETE he and his "staff" truly are

  62. 62

    my god!
    obama's such a famewhore
    he should be doing his fucking JOB!
    not making appearences at basketball games, late nights
    your not doing anything since you got in that house!
    were in serious shit in this country and your going on leno
    sorry obama your not a celebrity your a famewhore
    go at your effing job already its been over 100 days yet i see you not doing anyhitng just ruining the tv!

  63. 63

    he should try working for once in his life. this president has accomplished absolutely nothing in his entire "career". i would wish for nothing more than a woman president or a black president, but it has to be someone with QUALIFICATIONS that actually DOES THEIR JOB. Obama is a fake and spends money like there is no tomorrow and takes regular vacations. yes, he's going on a european vacation next! how nice for him! obama fiddles while rome burns.

  64. 64

    He is going on to to sell himself, not his policies, to the late night crowd. I will be surprised if Leno asks him any critical questions. All questions have probably been written and approved by his people. I can not stand to watch another Obama infomercial.

  65. 65

    This message is for JulesinSD B.O.~He Stink's's.

    Lay off the hate, why don't ya, you're gonna have a freaking heart attack.
    Do you REALLY think all the problems are from the last 2 months since Obama took office? C'mon REALLY?
    How about when Greenspan was turning his head at all of the banks who were approving sub-prime mortgages. Yeah, that's Obama's fault. Factories aren't building stuff, ’cause no one is buying stuff is all Obama's fault, right? Companies are going out of business now because of the last 3 quarters of down-turns. And that's Obama's fault. Take a deep breath now. Let's all try to get through this together, shall we?

  66. 66

    Re: pinkhotluv – I can only guess you voted for Obama. You should really leave the voting to the grown ups because we are the ones who are working to pay for Obama's spending spree. Also, to babydeer1012, rpattzdude, Jessica, and the many other Obamites, when you grow up and get a real job and pay REAL taxes you will begin to understand why so many people are against Obama and what he and his associates stand for.

  67. 67

    Re: DancinMeerkat – You are following a misguided train of thought. You want to hate the opposition so badlyy, that you are turning a blind eye to what Obama's administration is doing. The Bush administration and the Democrat congress added to our problem, but what Obama wants to do is not the way to fix what is going on. Government is not the solution to our problems, they are the ones who created them.

  68. 68

    Such a douche bag.
    I guess there is nothing better to do than go on Leno and make with the funny while people are losing their homes and jobs, kind of in bad taste.
    If any other prez {other Clinton} were to do this it would be a rampage.
    Get off the jock already!

  69. 69

    hes just going to suck Baracks dick the entire interview and tell horrible jokes Re: bobbytomorow
    How is this any different from how the rest of the MSM treats Maobama?

  70. ryjae says – reply to this


    It's about time that our Leader sit down with someone that will actually ask questions that REAL americans want to know. Hopefully Jay won't hold back, and although it's not 60 minutes, I think that this could be a lot more informative for normal americans that need a laugh just to get over how fucked up everything in America is right now.

  71. 71

    what's the big hype about obama…hes just president.

    this is almost as unimportant as the "obama dinner special" sign i recently saw.

  72. 72

    shouldn't Obama be doing more IMPORTANT things???

  73. 73

    this guy is a moron. interesting how as his approval ratings drop…he goes on a talk show. hey…here is an idea, start giving us some change. ugh.

  74. 74

    the big chin needs to ask hollywood Obama why he lied about bringing the troops home in 6 months and no new taxes.youtube the obama deception.

  75. 75

    Re: Mikey Glitter – You're correct!!

  76. 76

    This is so disgusting. He's freakin' campaigning for 2012 already! I guess this is one way to get your approval rating back up, either go on a talk show or ACTUALLY F***ING DO SOMETHING FOR OUR COUNTRY.

  77. 77

    What do you expect from the LEFT"S butt-boy! Leno offers teleprompters - Obie can't "perform" without one.

  78. 78

    doesn't he have more important things to do than sit down for jay leno?
    HYPE instead of HOPE…just proves the point that he as well as the rest of America see him as more of a celebrity than a president.

    Re: pinkhotluv
    you give democrats such a good reputation :) KEEP IT UP!! you're fulfilling the stereotype !!

    that's coz you guys elected a celebrity, not a president

  81. 81

    Maybe Obama should stay in Washington and figure out a way to do away with his bill that will bill wounded vets for medical care instead of prancing his ass onto talk show sets.

  82. 82

    He's going to be at the studio right next door to my school! HOW AWESOME IS THAT. The president just a couple hundred feet away from me! AH

  83. 83

    Re: EV0522 – Awesome! Be sure to thank him for the 11 TRILLION dollar debt your and your great grandchildren will never pay off. Also, could you thank him for tanking the stock market that has destroyed our life savings.

    Thanks so much.

    He's destroying the country so he takes time out to go on a late night talk show. WORST PRESIDENT EVER!!!!! IMPEACH OBAMA!!!!!
