Tracy Morgan felt "overwhelmed" throughout the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner last May, he said on 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). "I see you sitting there with Michelle [Obama]," he told Jay Leno. "That was awesome. You see me wink at you?"
Well, as host of the event, Leno was somewhat preoccupied. No matter. The highlight was meeting Colin Powell. "He like knocked down two people to get to me, and he hugged me. I started crying and everything ... I said, 'Sir, I hope you don't mind if I tell people you're my biological father.'"
Morgan didn't reveal how Powell responded. But the comedian went on to give his take on the latest Mel Gibson scandal.
