Slow Jamming With Jimmy

Is the President trying to get a comedic jump on Jimmy Kimmel?

Just days before sharing the dais at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner with Late Night Comedian Jimmy Kimmel,  President  Obama “slow jammed” the news last night on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.”

Obama taped the segment on Tuesday at the University of North Carolina.

North Carolina is a key battleground state for the 2012 Presidential election, and Obama’s appearance on “Late Night” is seen as the White House’s latest effort to capture the youth vote.

On Saturday April 28, Jimmy Kimmel will host the 98th annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, and President and Mrs. Obama are expected to attend.
