Jimmy Fallon: "The President Booked Himself On Our Show"

"It's the craziest thing ever to have happened to me," Jimmy Fallon, the host of "Late Night" said about President Obama appearing on his show.

"We keep going to each other on the set, 'Hey, it did happen right? We did Slow Jamming with the President of the United States?' What happened is they called us, the White House called us because we did a piece with Michelle on," Fallon said.

"He booked himself on your show?" Matt Lauer of the "Today" show asked Fallon.

"The President booked himself," Fallon said. "He didn't call, the White House called us."

While recalling a visit to the White House where he was throwing dodgeballs around historical paintings with First Lady Michelle Obama, Fallon revealed more about the request from the White House.

"We got the call about the president of the United States wants to do maybe a bit because his initiative is to not raise taxes on student loans. And he was going to different colleges and so I said -- 'will Jimmy come to the college?'" Fallon said.

"And I said, 'I'd love to come to the college, but would he be up for doing a whole show when I interview him?'" Fallon shared.

"And they go, 'I don't know, we'll call you right back.' So then they called us back and they go, 'I think he's in.'" he said.
