(NBC) - President Obama on Wednesday took a break from his two-day, six state campaign blitz to appear on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Mr. Obama used the appearance to poke fun at his debate performance and his relationship with Donald Trump.
"I got to ask you about this," Leno said. "What's this thing with Trump and you? He's just, it's like me and Letterman. What has he got against you?"
"This all dates back to when we were growing up together in Kenya," President Obama quipped. "We had constant run-ins on the soccer field. He wasn't very good and he resented it. When we finally moved to America i thought it would be over but..."
And, as it turns out, the two have never even met.
Speaking of the first lady, check out some of Michelle Obama's most fashionable moments Leno also quizzed Obama about his much-criticized performance in his first debate against Mitt Romney. Obama's performance in the third presidential debate made Lindsay Lohan "proud"
"The truth is, this is not a natural way of communicating," Obama explained. "You don't sit next to somebody and have an extended argument with them like that.... with Michelle, I just concede every point. That's why we celebrated our 20th anniversary."
"There are worse things that can happen than forgetting to give your wife a gift," he cracked.
But when discussing his plan to vote early when he visits Illinois on his "48-hour campaign marathon extravaganza" this week, it didn't sound like he's too far in the dog house with the first lady, noting, "Michelle told me she voted for me."
And, good news for trick-or-treaters on Pennsylvania Avenue who may have received fruit last year at the behest of Michelle Obama: "It is an election year, so candy for everybody," Obama announced. "If anybody comes from Ohio to the White House, they will get a Hershey bar about this big," he added, holding his hands far apart.
Finally, the president was asked by a fan who submitted a question via Facebook if there was a cure for Romnesia.
"Obamacare covers preexisting conditions," he said.
