Jimmy Kimmel Asks Barack Obama The Questions You've Always Wondered About The White House


Shortly after reading mean tweets from his critics for the Jimmy Kimmel Live "Mean Tweets" segment, Barack Obama sat in the hot seat and allowed Kimmel to interrogate him with the hard-hitting questions few have dared to ask.


"When you're at home, can you run down to the kitchen in your underpants, in the middle of the night if you're hungry?" Kimmel asked. 

Obama explained that, sure, he could if he wanted to.

Kimmel asked the president if he resets his clocks for daylight saving time.

As it turns out, somebody handles that for the Commander-in-Chief while he's worrying about other things.  

In a separate part of the interview, Kimmel implored The President to do something about the long receipts at pharmacies and convenience stores.

Kimmel suggested that the president should have more of a "who cares" attitude about fundraising and campaigning, considering he only has two years left in office.

Obama explained, earnestly, that the reason he still cares is because he wants to make sure that every American who has the right to vote, exercises that right.

"You have folks who risk their lives to make sure we all have the right to vote and we give away our power all the time," he said. "And as a consequence, special interests and big money ends up moving a lot of the agenda and driving gridlock."

The mood became even more solemn when Kimmel raised the issue of race relations and the recent events in Ferguson.

"What was beautiful about Selma was reminding ourselves that real social change in this country so often has happened because ordinary people are willing in a non-violent fashion to make their voices heard," Obama said. "If people of good will, which is the overwhelming majority of Americans, are working together, these are problems we can solve."
