Play of the Day: Obama the Travel Planner

TBS

Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue usually touches on celebrity culture more than political and government news, but the two converged recently when rapper -- and friend of President Barack Obama -- Jay-Z  and his wife Beyonce planned their anniversary trip to Cuba. Being that there’s a travel restriction on the Caribbean state, Jay-Z implied in a song that Obama pulled strings to get the couple there. Kimmel jumped on this story, quoting Snoop Dogg and saying that Obama is “Keeping his mind on our money and our money on his mind.” On TBS, Conan O’Brien also noted the story, bringing in Bill Clinton’s lascivious nature.

O’Brien also looked at some fake tweets and tread the stereotype of Joe Biden’s maturity again, while Kimmel examined the news on the ricin letters received in Washington this week.

Fast forward to 3:00 to see why Obama isn’t concerned with the ricin letter sent to him.
