President Obama had to address the constant ridicule he is receiving from Donald Trump the only way it deserved to be addressed, by making fun of it! During a visit on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night, President Barack Obama blamed the bad blood between himself and Celebrity Apprentice host Donald Trump on youthful “constant run-ins on the soccer field” in Kenya, according to the White House Press Reports. According to Deadline, Earlier Wednesday, Trump offered to donate $5 million to Obama’s charity of choice if the President would make public his passport and his college records (video below). Leno compared the situation to “me and Letterman. What has he got against you here? I don’t get it.”
Here is Donald Trumps Video That Started The Controversy:

At the Tonight Show, President Obama blasted Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock’s rape comments, poked fun at Donald Trump, and took a shot at photo identification voting laws passed by several states.
On Trump, Leno asked what’s the deal between the real estate mogul and reality TV show host and the president? Trump offered Obama $5 million Wednesday if he released his college and passport records. Obama told Leno that the beef dates back to when he and Trump were growing up Kenya. “We had constant run-ins on the soccer field,” Obama said. “He wasn’t very good and resented it. When we finally moved to America I thought it would be over.” Obama then told Leno that he has never personally met Leno [NOTE – I think the Pool means “Trump” here not “Leno”] (though POTUS did skewer Trump at a White House Correspondents Dinner with Trump in the audience).
Leno also asked Obama whether he’s asked Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to stay on the job if he’s re-elected. Leno said Clinton has done a fine job. Obama agreed. ”She’s done a wonderful job,” Obama said. “I would love for her to stay.” He added that “Despite my begging” he thinks that Clinton is looking forward to spending more time with her family.”
This was the President’s fifth visit to the NBC late night show, his third since taking office in 2009. Hilarious!
