Comedy Isn’t for Commanders in Chief


Well, it was bound to happen. But if you’re a talker, which I know something about, this is the type of thing you hear in your head before you utter it, so you stop it before it comes out.

On Jay Leno, from the transcript I received, but it’s everywhere already:

Q Really? Really?

THE PRESIDENT: I bowled a 129. (Laughter and applause.)

Q No, that’s very good. Yes. That’s very good, Mr. President.

THE PRESIDENT: It’s like – it was like Special Olympics, or something. (Laughter.)

Q No, that’s very good.

THE PRESIDENT: No, listen, I’m making progress on the bowling, yes.

Q And how about, are you going to put in a basketball court?
