  1. Why did you need to bring her down like this? She did a great job finishing high school. She did not bring up the letter of recommendation from Michelle Obama, Jimmy you brought it up. And then when she tries to say she appreciates her AP calc teacher's rec letter as well, you made sure to convince her that letter wasn't special. Come on now. Move on to other things.

  2. he kept cutting her off, like I get they've got a time limit or whatever but isn't it better to have a quality dialogue on one or two topics than a rlly rushed convo on several things? she was making some important points and he kept trying to make a joke out of every comment

  3. Can we stop talking about the fame hungry Obamas now please. This girl has little to to thank them for. She is talent and looks in one package. Plus why is MObama writing letters for an already privileged girl. SMDH

  4. a proper dressed, well spoken, intelligent teenager on tv in 2017 amazing! Also, his "interruptions" were because the conversation was pretty dull so he decided to tell some jokes which were funny…not a big deal
