Comedian Jay Leno questioned President Obama about his professed love of broccoli Tuesday night, jokingly accusing the president of lying to children.
“Can you put your right hand on a Bible and say, ‘Broccoli,’” Leno asked.
“Let me say this — I have broccoli a lot,” Obama said, “I mean, no, you can ask my staff! It is one of my staples. Me and broccoli, I don’t know, we’ve got a thing going.”
“Really?” asked Leno.
“It goes especially well with burgers and fries,” Obama replied.
