Obama To Republicans: ‘Orange Is Not The New Black’

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community

President Obama had a dig at the Republican party on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon by referring to the “orange” image the party puts out, projecting leadership, power and authority with a hint of tangy sweetness.

In reference to the new Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and the former House Speaker John Boehner,  Obama said to Jimmy: “Orange is not the new black.”

The Daily Caller reports:

During his first appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” the president and the late night tv host were “slow-jamming the news” when Fallon asked Obama if he had watched any election coverage about Trump this week.

“No, but I have been watching my new favorite show,” Obama answered. “‘Orange Is Not The New Black.”


Later on, Obama said he was worried about the Republican party.

“I don’t know how they’re feeling,” Obama said. “But the truth is I am actually worried about the Republican Party.”

“This country works when you have two parties that are serious and trying to solve problems. And they’ve got philosophical differences and they have fierce debates and they argue and they contest elections. But at the end of the day, what you want is a healthy two-party system.”

“So I am actually not enjoying, and I haven’t been enjoying over the last seven years, watching some of the things that have happened in the Republican Party ’cause there’s some good people in the Republican Party.”
