When late night TV host Jay Leno asked Obama for his take on Trump’s endless effort to ridicule him, the charismatic Commander-in-Chief responded by mocking the magnate and his outlandish accusations that he was born in Kenya. He joked that tension between the two actually began in Kenya:
“This all dates back to when we were growing up in Kenya. We had constant run-ins on the soccer field, he wasn’t very good and resented it. When we finally moved to America, I thought it would be over.”
Obama kept the jokes rolling when Leno asked him whether there was a cure for “Romnesia,” a term Obama uses to describe Mitt Romney’s selective memory and tendency to flip-flop on political issues. “Obamacare covers pre-existing conditions,” said the President in response.
Obama also addressed a more serious matter during the interview, when he talked about Republican efforts to restrict women’s abortion rights. Recently, GOP Senate candidate Richard Mourdock called rape pregnancies a “gift” that “God intended.” Obama fired back at his claim, stating:
“Rape is rape, it is a crime. And so these various distinctions about rape don’t make too much sense to me–don’t make any sense to me. The second thing this underscores though is this is exactly why you don’t want a bunch of politicians, mostly male, making decisions about women’s healthcare decisions.”
