tom joyner barack obama

President Barack Obama called in to the Tom Joyner Morning Show on Wednesday to thank the legendary shock jock and his staff for their efforts to help him get his message out to the masses. In addition to thanking Joyner, the President explained the fiscal cliff, how it affects the African American community, and how everyone can help.

He also defended Susan Rice and expressed his disdain for the questions of her integrity. Obama also said that, unlike winning an NBA championship, his reelection did not warrant a trip to Disneyland; he was work to do.


Here is a snippet of the conversation below:

Tom Joyner: Big Chief?

THE PRESIDENT:  Hey, man.  (Laughter.)  How you doing?

Tom Joyner: I’m doing good.  How you doing?

THE PRESIDENT:  Well, I am blessed.  Are we already on the air, Tom?

Tom Joyner: Yes.  I’m rolling.

THE PRESIDENT:  Well, listen, the reason I’m calling is just to say thank you.  I’m saying thank you to you and the team, but most importantly to say thank you to the listeners because when I saw what was going on on Election Day, and just seeing everybody so determined and waiting in line and just not putting up with anything to make sure that we were able to keep moving forward on our agenda, I couldn’t have been prouder or more humbled.  And I know that it was because of the efforts of folks all across the country volunteering, writing $5 checks, $10 checks.  It just meant a lot.  And I know I couldn’t have done it without you guys, so I wanted to let you know we appreciate you.

Sybil Wilkes: And we did it without any gifts, Mr. President.

THE PRESIDENT:  See there.  We didn’t — (laughter) — well, let me just not touch that.

Tom Joyner: I know.  I know.

THE PRESIDENT:  Let me not go there.

Sybil Wilkes: I’m sorry.  (Laughter.)

THE PRESIDENT:  Let me not go there.

Tom Joyner: Okay.

THE PRESIDENT:  See, the –

Tom Joyner: We’ll go there for you.  (Laughter.)
