A Brief History of President Obama’s Self-Deprecating Sense of Humor


During his first appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night, President Obama was asked what he does that embarrasses his daughters. It's a softball daddy question that Obama gets a lot, always answering with a long story about what a dorky dad he isDoh! Last night he described a time when he had to give a large speech and left early with the big presidential wave, only to have to return moments later with the First Lady in hand and all the pomp and circumstance that goes with that because he was actually scheduled to stay for the full event. "What an idiot!" Obama joked about himself to Fallon. Womp womp! Obama especially loves to poke fun at himself when he's on the late-night couches, joking about his unpopularity, age, gray hair, and big ears. We took a look back at Obama's late-night appearances going back to 2006 and found he's often drinking from the self-deprecation well. Take a look!
