    I don’t care who is President, IMOO I don’t think the President of USA should be on any late night talk show. Sorry but if Kim K., Snookie, and crazy dog tricks are on them, why would the most powerful man in the world go on one. Totally confused on why!

    Notice how he’s going on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon but not CONAN?

    Say what you will about Jimmy, But he gives people a great platform to promote their stuff.

    Election law was broken here. This is a 5 million dollar donation to the Obama campaign. Romney or someone ought to sue! Or get equal pro Romney time donated!
