Leno vs. the Queen August 7, 2013

Posted by geoff in News.

The President appeared on Leno last night, and favored Jay with a lovely parting gift:

Wrapping up his sixth Tonight Show appearance with Jay Leno…President Barack Obama said he’d come with a parting gift for a man who owns perhaps Hollywood’s most famous car collection.

“There’s one piece that’s missing,” Obama said, unveiling a Matchbox-size replica of the presidential limousine, complete with flying flags above the headlights.


It was a thoughtful gift: funny, appropriate, and tailored for the recipient.

If only he and his staff had put the same effort into gifts for heads of state. Can you imagine Leno’s reaction had Obama brought out a collection of great American films or an iPod filled with his speeches? Underwhelmed would be the politest word that comes to mind.

Now I see that he can give a decent gift, it makes me all the more convinced that his lack of care in gift-giving to dignitaries from the UK was deliberate and malicious.
