While promoting his new memoir, Barack Obama surprised Joyce Taylor- a retired auditor from Temple Hills, Maryland. She certainly had no idea she would actually be speaking with Obama.
He started off reading excerpts from his book but soon transitioned to reading facts about Taylor, who couldn’t believe that the former president was talking to her through the screen.
“Hey, Joyce how are you?!,” Obama asked. “I’m fine,” she said as Barack Obama told her it was nice to see her. Taylor was overwhelmed with emotion as he told her that she will receive an autographed copy of his new book.
Obama’s appearance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ follows recent news he confirmed, stating that he will not be joining president-elect Joe Biden in the White House – despite Biden being his former vice president and their well-documented friendship. “There are probably some things I would not be doing because Michelle would leave me. She’d be like, ‘What? You’re doing what?‘” Obama jokingly responded to Gayle King when asked if he planned to occupy a regular position in the Joe Biden White House.
