PopPolitics: Why Politicians Need Late-Night Talk Shows (Listen)

14 March 2015 1:07 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When President Obama read “Mean Tweets” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” this week, he was merely getting in on the joke.

Where once it was very unlikely that a sitting president would appear on a latenight talk show, Obama has made it a given, not just to sit with a host and do a breezy interview, but to also engage in a comedy skit.

When Obama made his first appearance since taking office on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” in 2009, pundits wondered whether it was too unpresidential; those criticisms have abated. Now the question is what can draw attention and get people listening.

Presidential contenders have made a point of visiting latenight talk shows ever since candidate Bill Clinton went on “The Arsenio Hall Show” in 1992, playing the saxophone and helping boost his likability.

President Obama Reads Mean Tweets on ‘Jimmy Kimmel’

12 March 2015 9:16 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

President Obama, appearing on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Thursday, played along with the host in riffs on birthers, mean Tweets and Hillary Clinton’s e-mail address.

Making his first appearance on the show since he became president, Obama did a version of Kimmel’s segment where guests read mean Tweets about themselves (video below). According to a pool report, Obama said that the Tweets were not as mean as “what the Senate says about me.”

In joke about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account, Obama refused to give Kimmel her email address.

As he has done before, Obama joked about birthers, or the belief that he was born in Kenya even though the White House long ago produced a birth certificate to refute it.

When Kimmel asked Obama if he could drive, Obama responded, “I can’t drive. I mean I can, but…”
