How Has President Obama Found Post-White House Life?

James Corden welcomes 44th President of the United States Barack Obama to the show, and the two recall some of First Lady Michelle Obama’s past adventures on the show. After, James asks the former president about what his life has been after his second term ended and what sense he gets from young people and how they feel about public service. And the “Promised Land” admits he hasn’t made his famous chili in nearly 20 years – he’s been a little busy for the kitchen.

  7. Raymond Sylvia on May 22, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    NIGHT & DAY with respect to leadership. Trump is still plotting darkness and division while Obama brings light, hope, and unity. He made us proud to be Americans.

  16. Kire Trajkov on May 22, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    Obama is so obsessed with Michelle, I wonder if this guy is held hostage…like if he doesnt mention her "greatness" a gazillion times every time he does an interview, she’ll divorce his ass or something. It’s becoming pathetic honestly.

  17. Marshal Phillips on May 22, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    I miss Obama, he’s such a darn decrnt, normal dude… in addention to having presidential gravitatus.

  18. coleen huff on May 22, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    Such a down to earth man. Thank you Mr. President. We miss you.

  19. Sheri Stapleton on May 22, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    Trump won and they stole the election. This will all be revealed. Obama is running the Deep State shadow government.

    "Cooking with Barack Obama" sounds nice, why not? 😀

  24. iLL6ixx on May 22, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    Why does Obama like Pizza so much tho? I just still cant figure out why would he spend 60k on Pizza in the Middle of the Night at the White House and nobody sees 60k worth of Pizza.

  25. NoOne on May 22, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Obama is just chilling on the beach watching game grumps

  26. Vic J on May 22, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    They jokingly compete with each other over affection and belonging. I can’t help but compare to the previous competition for power in order to have the right to diminish to others.

  27. Dan Jones on May 22, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    He looks great at 59.

    Moving us past our racial history? Erasing History does not have that effect, When people stop seeing things that remind them of crimes of the past it leaves those same things open to be repeated. We all want to move past it but in reality that would be a mistake, we need to embrace it. The bad and the good alike… Whenever people try to doctor books and history, it’s usually the very same people that want to bring that history back to life once everyone has forgotten about it…. these young kids have no idea that although their actions are righteous in nature the outcome of their actions might not be at all what they expect it to be.

  31. Herman ten Klooster on May 22, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    So nice to see a former president who is able to speak in coherent sentences. #45 must be fuming.

  32. Anasazi Tribe on May 22, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    Obama dropped leads for conversation starters (I’m cuter, get more sleep, Michelle thinks …, every problem is mine, time with his daughters), and Corden turns a deaf ear to start his interview checklist. Jeez

  33. Ndidi1st on May 22, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    Oh I miss him…. ❤️

  34. Eloise MacDougald on May 22, 2021 at 11:31 pm

  35. Natalia on May 22, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    Man, I can listen to him whole day with smile on my face! I wish I had such a father!

  36. Jean on May 22, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    I’ll never forget some idiot on FB saying how she couldn’t even stand the sound of his (President Obama’s) voice!! Well, I love his voice and his elegance and intelligence and compassion. The total opposite of the disgraceful 45 whose voice makes me sick! Xo to President Obama!

    My President! I miss him so much

  40. Jason Gafar on May 22, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    There are so many things I admired about Obama, but what I loved about him most was his empathy. He always struck me as a very unpretentious person who genuinely had a very good heart.
