President Barack Obama’s appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” predictably included a “slow jam the news” segment.

The segment found Obama, Jimmy Fallon, and The Roots celebrating Obama’s two terms in office. It also included shots at Donald Trump and comic relief in the form of the US president briefly singing the hook to Rihanna’s “Work.”

Thursday’s “Tonight Show” was also to feature an interview with Obama. Madonna will close the episode with a performance.
