When even the president of the United States is calling you a jackass, it’s a good time to go on national television and be contrite, which is exactly what Kanye West did on last night’s debut of the “The Jay Leno Show.” The video’s below, and Kanye seems to have grasped how much America doesn’t like it when you drunkenly upstage a pretty blonde 19-year-old during her moment to shine. After obtaining a full apology from West, Leno followed up with the “What would your dead mother say about this?” question, and that’s when viewers were treated to a full 15 seconds of silence and the magic of the Kanye West Facepalm.
Thankfully, Leno doesn’t have a desk on his new show, because it allowed him to awkwardly try to console West by leaning forward and touching his leg. You have to give Kanye a little bit of credit here. It couldn’t have been easy to not say, “Hey, Jay Leno, you f-ckin’ mind? Can you not touch me while I’m thinking about my dead mother? Thanks.”
