President Obama Last Night On TheTonight Show


8/6/2013 – Barack Obama On Jay Leno PART 1 – Talks NSA, Trayvon, And Hillary Lunch – President Obama joined Jay Leno on Tuesday night for a wide-ranging interview that touched on everything from his recent lunch with Hillary Clinton to reassurances that the NSA surveillance programs are not as overblown as they’ve been made out to be. He also opened up about the international terror alert the government issued over the weekend.

Obama admitted he was disappointed that Russia offered asylum to Edward Snowden, but said he still intends to attend the G20 summit in Russia when that comes up. He declined to opine much on Snowden, but insisted that the NSA programs are not that threatening and domestic communications are not being collected en masse.

Obama also reflected on his remarks about Trayvon Martin and the racial dialogue he thinks the country needs to have.
