Rumors continue about the upcoming Apple iPhone release, including a rumor that the phone will track every move via GPS. Late Night’s Jimmy Fallon connected this feature to the National Security Agency’s surveillance program, saying President Barack Obama was already using this feature.

Last week, Obama met with Greece’s Antonis Samaras to talk about each nation’s economy. The Greece/Grease homophone gave Fallon opportunity to do his John Travolta impression by mocking Joe Biden, while The Tonight Show’s Jay Leno called the meeting “the blind leading the blind.”

Leno also had his staff put together an adorable video metaphor involving a baby, a Kit Kat bar and the concept of why Americans are so fed up with their elected officials.

Fast forward to 1:40 to see the video metaphor.
