Tomorrow’s Today to Feature Ass-Kicking Obama, Regular Old Matt Lauer


The Today show has released a clip from an interview between Barack Obama and Matt Lauer that will air in full tomorrow, the 50th day of the oil leak in the Gulf. In it, the POTUS and the journalist sit down for some frank discussion of the Gulf, and Obama is plenty teed. (Video after the jump.)

“I don’t sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar,” he says. “We talk to these folks because they, potentially, have the best answers so I know whose ass to kick.”

It’s not every day you get to hear the leader of your country threaten to hurt somebody, and we have to say, we kind of like it. Even if you don’t, consider the teaser’s work done — everybody wants to hear what else ass-kicking Obama has to say.
