Joe Biden Chats With Jimmy Fallon in First Late-Night Appearance

Fallon later sparked online criticism from Republican viewers after mentioning he was part of a “standing ovation” for Biden at the Kennedy Center, partly because the late-night host felt the president was “bringing the class back” after. Donald TrumpThe Presidency.

This isn’t the first time Fallon has drawn political ire from his audience; in 2016, his interview with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, during which the host ruffled the candidate’s hair, was widely criticized by Democratic supporters for his lightheartedness.

As Biden and Fallon’s conversation flowed, the president revealed that while he may have been vice president in the past, there were still some things that surprised him and First Lady Jill Biden when they moved into the White House.

“Jill and I come from middle-class backgrounds,” he explained. “We are not used to people waiting for us. In the White House, there is someone who prepares your breakfast, or someone who prepares your clothes, or someone who carries your bag.”

So they made an agreement with the kitchen staff. “The guys who run the kitchen on the second floor, we didn’t let them in and have breakfast for us,” he shared. “They don’t need to have breakfast for us. We can make our own eggs or pour a bowl of cereal.”

When Jimmy asked if the president lays eggs in the morning, Biden replied, “Well, I don’t, Jill does.”

She told a story in which her daughter was asked if her father could cook, to which she replied: “‘My dad can’t do much. He can boil water and make pisketti, but he can’t do much else. ‘”

“And guess what?” Biden asked. “You are right.”
