That’s right. President Slow Jam is set to appear on “The Tonight Show.”

No, really.


Laser-like focus, baby!


Twitter users, being givers, have helpfully started offering up some question ideas.

Enter #LenoAskObama:

But, hey, Nidal Hasan is just sorry he didn’t do a better job waging an Islamist “holy war.

Keep the suggestions coming, Twitter. Leno might be listening.

Indeed. Leno has pulled no punches with President Obama of late:

Will that trend continue?


Full Twitchy coverage of Jay Leno

  • Clayton Grant

    The sad part is, Leno will probably ask tougher questions than the news media and it will be laughed off as a joke.

    • MyrmidoNOT

      By “it”…you mean “teh oone”…right?? 😉

  • Republicanvet

    Preezy Fissbump. Stimulating jobs for comedy show hosts. Putz!

  • Republicanvet

    #LenoAskObama: When you said the scandals are phony, did you mean all of them?
    # LenoAskObama: When you said al Queda is on the run, did you mean from the 11 jailbreaks?
    # LenoAskObama: What did Bush do to cause Detroit to go bankrupt?

  • Pulchritudinous

    Considering how many jabs Leno’s giving Obama recently, this should be one interesting broadcast…

    • freeinaz

      I doubt it. The “one” had his troops make certain any type of tough or embarrassing questions are not asked or Obummer wouldn’t show up and do the show.

  • Republicanvet

    #LenoAskObama: Do you think Lois Lerner should be fired?
    # LenoAskObama: Were you worried Chris Brown would do his last album?

  • Fire and Adjust!

    #LenoAskObama: “Which unknown 1 year old you tube video with less than 1,000 views will you blame this time if any of our embassies are attacked under the current round of threats we’ve been hearing about?”

    • Fire and Adjust!

      “How long has Susan Rice been rehearsing her talking points that address your response to the previous question just asked?”

      “Have you already informed John Kerry of the talking points to use in the event of the attack or have you been unable to reach him on his boat?”

      “Was it Hillary who recommended to you that the best way to defend an embassy that is actively being threatened is to reduce its manpower and operate on a skeleton crew?”

      “Has NBC and CNN already been brought into the fold or are you just continuing to monitor their phone calls and e-mails?”

      “Should I expect an IRS audit in the near future for asking these questions?”


    If I were Jay Leno, I would ask Obummer 5 questions.

    I would ask him why he and Eric Holder gave Mexican drug cartels AK-47s, which killed 50,000 innocent Mexican citizens, 4 of our border patrol agents, accumulated the rise of illegal immigration, and greenlit the front for drug pushing to fund domestic gangs and other organized criminal organizations.

    I would ask him why he blamed the attack on the Benghazi consulate on an innocent civilian, caused 4 innocent Americans to die at the hands of terrorist activity,, why he did not call it a “terrorist attack”, and why he demanded a media blackout on it.

    I would ask him why there is an ongoing IRS scandal which punishes conservative groups, yet let leftist groups a free pass.

    I would ask him why he allowed voter fraud to be rampant, with districts voting over 108% democrat, why people voted twice or more, why machines were rigged to vote for Obama, why that in mental institutions, why people who cannot be qualified to vote due to them having downs syndrome and similar disabilities were chanting Obama’s name and were taken to vote for him during the election, and why illegal aliens were bussed in en-masse to vote for Obama, all while asking him why he hates Voter I.D. so much.

    And finally I would ask him why he is with me on the show when there are threats of terrorist attacks on our embassies in Muslim countries at the time being.

    Just like that, Obummer’s career will be destroyed permanently with those 5 questions.

    • MarcusFenix

      If Leno only had the stones to ask any of those questions…it might just work.

      • Ben Bollman

        I guess we will see if he is all talk when he criticizes Obama without him there. If Leno ends up kissing his ass he could also lose a lot of his audience.

    • kindamara

      I’d ask him how close his friendship is with George Soros.

  • Republicanvet

    # LenoAskObama: You’ve been described as a constitutional scholar. Do you think it appropriate for your Chairman of the Joint Chiefs to call a private citizen and ask him to curb his First Amendment rights?

    • mickeyco

      Obviously that made you as angry as me. Talk about an attempt to intimidate.

      • Republicanvet

        I still cannot believe a person wearing the uniform would do such a thing, or that Congress did nothing after.
        I can see a thug like Barky doing something like this, but someone in the military is shocking. He has so disgraced his uniform…he should be stripped of his rank and dishonorably discharged for lying about his oath.
        What a disgraceful POS!

  • SocialistMop

    Way to go with the hashtag, @loud_talker!

  • Suzyqpie

    If Leno had not already agreed to softball questions, 0bama would not have agreed to show up. There will be no spontaneity or extemporaneous speaking, please. Wonder if Putin will be watching and just roaring with laughter.

    • Adela Wagner

      Leno is on the way out, so if I were him, I’d agree to not asking the hard questions and let come what may, with this—-> ” So glad to have you on the show Mr. President, I thought we’d do something a little different, and take some questions from the audience…”

  • ELC

    Come on Jay…I thought more of you then to invite LOSER IN CHIEF to sit in as a guest. I guess since Jay’s on his way out it doesn’t matter anymore what crap will appear. Shame, shame, shame Jay…is he the best you can do?Looking forward not to watch this horror on my tv screen.

  • Magnifico

    Boxers or briefs…..or panties?

  • IceColdTroll

    Giving away free Chevy V olts?

    • tops116

      “Just breaking, we gave word of sudden explosions in ‘The Tonight Show’ parking lot. No, not an attempt on President Obama’s life; just the wind hitting a Chevy Volt and causing a chain reaction. Nobody was harmed because no one was willing to climb into a single vehicle.”

  • IceColdTroll

    The one line I’d love to hear from Leno– “Now let’s welcome our guest host Dennis Miller.”

    • tops116

      That would be great, but I’d settle for a more aggressive approach. “Now let’s welcome our guest host, Nick Searcy.”

  • freeinaz

    Jay, ask him about the phony IRS scandal and watch him get all pissed like “how dare you question dear leader”.

  • fireandreamitchell

    While Leno has ragged on Obama recently, I’ll bet he tosses him nothing but softball and NBC style kisses tonight.

  • BoscoBolt

    ( in a perfect world … )

    And … Tonight’s special musical guest … Ted Nugent!

  • NinerED

    #LenoAskObama Whose social security number are you using and why did it fail E-Verify?

    LenoAskObama: How do you manage the strain of putting in a public appearance such as this so close to your Martha Vineyard vacation?

  • LR99

    What else are you betting on with tax payer money?

  • LR99

    How much was the national debt when you took office and how much is it now?

  • waterytart

    I wouldn’t ask him anything…….I’d sit there, with a quizzical look on my face, and just stare at him like a zoo animal. He’d be screeching, climbing the backstop and yelling, “I did it for you Ma!” in 2 minutes. He wouldn’t know how to manage without someone throwing great big adoring nerf balls for him to hit out of the park. Then, after staring at him, I’d stand up, pat him on the head while shaking my head, and walk off the stage and leave him sitting there. Hey, a Tart can dream, right?

  • Mommamia1

    Just play a laugh track the entire interview through. He’s one horrible joke without a punch-line.

    • tops116

      Leno or Obama?

  • Mommamia1

    Maybe he can do another sickeningly feminine dance like he did on Ellen to change the subject. – He’s so cool he has ice water in his veins.

    • tops116

      “Everybody do ‘The Squirrel!’ It’s just a jump to the left. And then a step to the right. Then shout ‘YouTube video, Mitt Romney’s dog and rogue employees!'”

  • Defund NPR PBS & NEA

    I find @BarackObama visit on @JayLeno as OFFENSIVE as his #Fundraiser while the #Benghazi victims died & #Ubben waited 20 hrs for medic

  • tops116

    Good thing al Qaeda’s on the run, huh? 😐

  • Jose

    When is he going to stop campaigning?

  • cscape

    Obama trying to be funny like Jay: “i never said PHONY scandals…. i said FOAMY scandals….. because the FOLKS pushing these distracting stories are FOAMING AT THE MOUTH in anger over my re-election” (crowd doesn’t laugh)

    • Frustrated Teacher

      Well THAT’S a new level of douchiness from a sitting President….glad I skipped it to watch Lord of the Rings with my sick daughter….

      • cscape

        he never actually said that……. it’s my imagining what he might say

        • Frustrated Teacher

          Sorry….missed that part.
