Rachel Maddow, Jimmy Fallon Dont Think Donald Trump Actually Wants to be President (Video)

Donald Trump may be leading the race to become the Republican partys presidential nominee, but Rachel Maddow and Jimmy Fallon arent so sure he actually wants the job. Do you think he wants to be president for real? Fallon asked his guest, who hosts her own political talk show on MSNBC. I cant imagine that he actually wants to be president, Maddow said. Hes supposedly running this giantbusiness empire, but hes taking a few months off to run for president in his spare time, while doing nothing onhis business, and everything seems to be fine. I dont think he usually has to work very hard, so I cant imagine that being president seems like fun. Maybe he could be elected and then he could outsource it to somebody. China will do it for $3.  Read More... //www.thewrap.com/rachel-maddow-jimmy-fallon-dont-think-donald-trump-actually-wants-to-be-president-video/

Jay Leno’s Tear-Jerker ‘Tonight Show’ Goodbye: ‘I’m the Luckiest Guy in the World’ (Video)

Jay Leno bid farewell to the ‘Tonight Show,’ his fans and his clearly beloved colleagues in a heartfelt goodbye to close the curtain on Thursday’s show, and his NBC late-night career. “This has been the greatest 22 years of my life,” Leno opened. ”I’m the luckiest guy in the world. I got to meet Presidents, astronauts, movie stars.” That is when it got really personal, and very misty eyed. “I’ll tell you something,” Leno began. “[The] first year of the show, I lost my mom. The second year, I lost my dad. Then my brother died. And after that, I was pretty much out of family. And the folks here became my family. Consequently, when they went through rough times, I tried to be there for them.”   Read More... //www.thewrap.com/jay-leno-tonight-show-goodbye-nbc-garth-brooks-jimmy-fallon

Leno's leaving 'The Tonight Show' before his contract is up .... with a nice payout

It's time for Jay Leno to bid farewell to "The Tonight Show." Again.NBC famously moved the comedian out of his late weeknight slot once before, believing the time was right then for a change ... and also not wanting to lose another of its then-talents, Conan O'Brien, who was given the show.Leno eventually returned, but the departure scenario will be repeated as he leaves "Tonight" a second time Thursday, Feb. 6, paving the way for Jimmy Fallon to become the host on Feb. 17 (and for the show to move from Los Angeles back to New York, where Fallon is based).Leno's "Tonight" tenure often has been marked by conversation about more than his performance on the program. Right up to the end, though, NBC has been happy to trumpet that "Tonight" -- along with "Late Night," which Fallon is leaving (and leaving to fellow "Saturday Night Live" veteran Seth Meyers) to move up an hour... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/02/the-tonight-show-jimmy-fallon-enters-as-jay-leno-exits-again.html
