VIDEOS: Barack Obama Addresses Donald Trump's Demands On Jay Leno
President Barack Obama, 51, gave it to audiences straight on his fifth Tonight Show with Jay Leno appearance on Wednesday night, during which he defended the cause of women's health care and addressed Donald Trump's most recent plea that he release his college applications and passport records, saying that if the president complied with his demands, he would donate $5 million to any charity of Obama's choice.
Obama got his two cents in on the feud, however, which NBC's Leno compared to his career-long problems with CBS Late Show talk show host, David Letterman. "What's this thing with Trump and you?" Leno asked. "It's like me and Letterman, I don't get it."
"This all dates back to when we were growing up together in Kenya," Obama said to a roaring audience. "And 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 also got serious on a few matters during Leno's show, too, like the comment made by Senate candidate Richard Mourdock about conception as a result of rape. "Even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that is something that God intended to happen," Mourdock said.
Obama was offended by the comment. "Let me make a very simple proposition: 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. This is exactly why you don’t want a bunch of politicians — mostly male — making decisions about women’s health care," he said.
While Leno says that he's glad the debates are over, Obama took the opportunity to crack one more joke about his three performances. "You know, I was sort of getting the hang of it," he said.
