Jimmy Fallon wrote out “Thank You” cards with the leader of the free world last night, shoehorning in a sincere one at the end of several jokes.
The honor, pen, and soft keyboard music for Thursday’s first “Tonight Show” “Thank You Note” went to President Obama, who basically scribed a bit of gratitude to himself right off the bat.
Fallon then used his own turn to thank the president’s birth certificate: “He used to carry it around to prove he’s American, now he carries it around to prove he’s only 54,” the “SNL” alum said.
Obama used the cue to go with more of a quip in his next turn, which was followed-up by a solid Fallon shot at Hillary Clinton — the 2016 Democratic nominee who recently received the chief executive’s endorsement.
The president saved his best — a Trump slam — for last, and his NBC host closed the whole thing out with a sweet “Thanks” to the outgoing top politician.
