In an appearance on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon, President Barack Obama attempted to remind America that the presidency is “a serious job,” not “reality TV.”

In a full interview to air Thursday night, Obama commented on the race between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders and said that his “main” role was “to remind the American people that this is a serious job. This is not reality TV.”

Back in May, Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s convention manager said that the presidency was “ultimate reality show.” (VIDEO: Trump Convention Manager: Presidency Is ‘Ultimate Reality Show’)
