Diminishing His Position

Many find much to criticize in a certain late-night comedy sketch featuring the president. Indeed, the man has much to answer for. He has a very important job in society. Millions of young people look up to him as a role model. He surely has much better things to do with his time. And this can only be seen as pandering to the most juvenile of his supporters at the expense of not treating his role with the sincerity it deserves.

Jimmy Fallon, you should be ashamed of yourself, lowing your standards by appearing with Obama. Even worse, instead of at least having him participate in the noble calling of comedy, it is clear you have instead joined him at his own lowly, degenerate enterprise of politicking. A job as important to the free world as late-night comedian deserves to be treated with honor and respect, not sullied by the low-brow spectacle of the U.S. president giving a stump speech. If your fans wanted to waste their time on something inane, they would turn on CNN.
