President Obama Slow-Jam Slams Donald Trump in Tonight Show Video: 'Orange Is Not the New Black'

Here’s a question we never thought we’d ask ourselves: Did President Obama just steal Madonna’s thunder?

Like most of you, we tuned into The Tonight Show on Thursday in anticipation of a killer performance from the Queen of Pop. What we weren’t expecting was an ambush of smoothness from Obama during a show-opening edition of “Slow Jam the News.”

Equal parts Soul Train– and School House Rock-inspired, the duet retraced several of Obama’s recent initiatives — often literally spelling them out for the audience — and revisited those which he remains most proud from his time in office.

And then Jimmy Fallon brought up Donald Trump. You can imagine how well that went.

      Yeah, Thank yoou Mr. President for not doing your job again.
      Obama and Fallon are the same. Both are amazed about themselves. No one else is.

      • Lisa says:

        No one? Like not one single person likes Pres. Obama or Jimmy Fallon? ;)

      • Mary says:

        Yet you took the time to watch. I guess you have nothing better to do with your life except complain. Negative people is how someone like Trump won the nomination.
        This is what you call great entertainment, he made valid points without actually attacking, some could learn from it.

      • Jamie says:

        Yeah, taking a few minutes to be proud of the fact that unemployment is at it’s lowest since the financial crisis of 07/08 is so awful! Shame on Obama’s cabinet for getting Americans back to work!

        • John h says:

          Yeah, unemployment is so low!!! The economy has never been better!!! It’s so easy to get a decent job right now!!! Oh, wait, none of those things are true.

          • Anna says:

            It is fact that unemployment is at it’s lowest since 2008. Straight up fact. Not really sure how you argue with facts.

    He’s definitely one of the few sane Americans.Maybe eventually someone will corral the yahoos and get around that right to arms amendment.Country is just short of an undeclared war zone.

  4. Dick Whitman says:

    Gonna miss him and he’s not even my president.

  5. Peter Marchl says:

    It so sad there’s no third term for Mr. Obama… Especially watching the new candidates, one worries…

  6. Pat says:

    I absolutely love this just as I loved the other Slow Jam that he did with Jimmy. Thanks, Jimmy and Mr. President you started my morning out with a good laugh.

  7. Lisa says:

    The third singer in the line was the best.

    Nice skit, nicely conceived and executed.

  8. Katherine215 says:

    Obama’s entire segment was fantastic. The man has a great sense of humor, on top of being a fantastic president. I’m going to miss him so much!

  9. Joey Padron says:

    It was good to have Slow Jam News back on the show. Jimmy and Obama did great at it like they did a few times before.
