Barack Obama made numerous digs at Donald Trump as he spoke about his new book A Promised Land during an appearance on Thursday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
Kimmel mentioned he loved the former president’s release, but did add that it was long at 701 pages.
The host asked, “Did you make it that long to make sure Trump would never read it?” to which Obama replied, “I don’t think it would have had to be 700 to make sure he didn’t read it, from what I hear.”
Obama also spoke about whether there was anywhere Donald Trump could hide in the White House if he refused to leave, laughing: “I think we can always send the Navy Seals in there to dig him out.”
In another swipe at Trump, Obama added he didn’t feel premature at all in congratulating Joe Biden before the president conceded.
“There seems to be some lag,” he said. “The communication system in the White House used to be better. It was real time. There’s a lot of computers there that actually tell you what’s going on around the world.”
Obama then spoke about family life, joking Michelle was telling the truth when she said he was afraid of his daughter Sasha.
“The reason is because Sasha is a mini-Michelle, and I’m afraid of Michelle,” Obama shared. “And Sasha, having seen that, basically has the same look, the same attitude.”
He mentioned that his daughter Malia has more of his temperament, as well as his facial structure.
“We call ourselves the long faces,” he explained.
“The round faces are Michelle and Sasha and the round faces are a fiercer tribe,” Obama continued. “We’re like the vegetarians, the gatherers and they’re the hunters. We try to keep the peace with them.”
Kimmel went on to ask Obama a “personal question” about whether he and Michelle made love on the night Osama Bin Laden was killed. However, the former president managed to avoid giving an exact answer.
The host said, “I asked this of your wife, I interviewed her in Tacoma last year and she told me that, she said, ‘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 [Osama] Bin Laden, did you and Michelle make love?”
Obama then questioned whether Michelle actually intended to answer the question, to which Kimmel insisted: “Yes,” adding, “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. I did.”
“I suspect she was asleep,” Obama laughed. “‘Cause the truth of the matter, most of the time, by the time I was done working, she’d be snoozing. So, Michelle goes to bed about 9 o’clock.”
