Jimmy Fallon Gives Joe Biden A Friendly Welcome In Effusive ‘Tonight Show’ Interview: “You Are Bringing Class Back To The Office”

"I appreciate the honesty, yeah," Fallon said.
There were many advantages for the White House in doing the interview, as Biden got to stick to his talking points on the infrastructure bill, the Build Back Better Act and the Covid-19 relief package without facing any kind of serious follow ups. It's likely that Fallon's broadcast rivals, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel, would have slipped in a couple of questions with a harder edge, even if there is no secret where their allegiances lie.
"You are bringing class back to the office," Fallon told the president, making pretty clear where his affinity lies, having endured criticism for his light-hearted interview with Donald Trump in the midst of the divisive 2016 presidential campaign.
The pressure. the other day and driving around and you see all these giant buildings and you feel kind of nervous. And then you have to do 20 events during the day that we don't even see." I feel important when I am there but you are the leader of our country. Fallon: "Does anyone really understand how hard your job is?…Just being in D.C.
I got boosted. Is it the youth that we have to just hope that the kids get us out of this? If you want me to wear red pants, I will wear red pants. I don't know what to say. Because I got vaxxed. When Fallon touched on the polarizing issue of the vaccines, he put it this way: "The Covid problem. I got whatever you want. At this point I think people are going to do what they will, I guess. I want this thing to go away." I don't know what else to do and how to tell people to get the vaccine.
As the interview went on, though, he eased up a bit. After all, this was far from a grilling. The chief drawback to the Fallon interview was that it was not in studio and still virtual: Biden was not as relaxed as in past in studio appearances, and he stuck so much to the talking points in the initial portions of the Fallon interview that the president seemed more like he was making the rounds on the Sunday morning talk show than a late night guest shot.
President Joe Biden's first late-night appearance since becoming president was on very friendly terrain: The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, in which the host was effusive throughout and largely stayed on the White House topic points.
Not a joke. It is patriotic to get it done." Look at it this way. Biden brought up some of the furor over vaccine mandates, as he told Fallon, "This stuff about 'Biden's mandating these things happening, and it is un-American. It is patriotic to get this done.
I don't mean about me, but about their situation. And people are getting so much inaccurate to them. They are being told that Armageddon is on the way. Biden then said, "Look, people are afraid. The truth is the economy is growing more than it has any time in close to 60 years. People are worried. The unemployment rate is down to 4.2% and it is going to lower."
Perhaps the funniest moment was when Fallon asked Biden, "How much do you pay attention to your approval rating?" "Well, not anymore," the president responded.
I knew what the job was. No one should feel sorry for me. It is the greatest honor anyone could have in their whole life, in my view, is to be president of the United States." Biden: "Well look. I was vice president for eight years.
“I would pay attention when they’re in the mid-60s, but now they’re in the 40s, I don’t pay attention anymore.”
Biden replied, "I think what we ought to do is have more people listen to your song." He was referring to A Masked Christmas, with Ariana Grande and Megan Thee Stallion. Biden tweeted it out.
Smith than Meet the Press. It'd hardly be surprising if Biden makes more return visits to this turf, based on the light and soft nature of the Fallon interview, with an atmosphere more on the order of Mr. Biden recently returned the presidential tradition of attending the Kennedy Center Honors, as Fallon noted, and The Tonight Show host was in the audience. The 46th president also is going back to the presidential prerogative of doing late night, a forum that Trump shunned for obvious reasons.
