However, he’s also a very busy man who doesn’t play as often as he’d like, as evidenced by his 2-22 showing on the White House basketball court this week. Obama’s poor shooting performance was roundly mocked by late-night hosts Tuesday, including David Letterman showing a highlight reel of Obama sports bloopers, Jimmy Fallon making Dick Cheney aim jokes and Jay Leno even tied him to Andre Drummond. 

The other overwhelming story on the shows was North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un’s recent provocations against the United States and the subsequent US response.
