Obama called in to Jimmy Kimmel Live! to discuss his new memoir, A Promised Land, which reveals both public and private moments from his first presidency. It ends with the Navy Seal operation to kill Osama bin Laden.
In their conversation, Kimmel wanted to get to a question that had been burning in his brain.
“A personal question, I asked this question of your wife,” he began.
“I interviewed her in Tacoma last year and she told me, ‘The next time I see you, I will tell you the answer, and I will tell you a story,’ but I haven’t seen her. So, on the night you did kill bin Laden, did you and Michelle make love?”
Obama had no words and featured an open mouth as Kimmel continued on.
“When I read the book and you were talking about hearing people outside the White House chanting ‘USA, USA, USA,’ I had an image in my head,” he added.
“I suspect that she was asleep because the truth of the matter is, most of the time, by the time I was done working, she’d be snoozing,” Obama joked.
“You don’t have to make excuses, it’s okay,” Kimmel lets him off. “I experience the same thing.”
And Obama quickly fires back: “It’s not an excuse; it’s a lament.”
Finger snaps for Obama!
