Last night, when Jimmy Fallon concluded his interview with Obama, Fallon said:
"Mr. President, it was such a thrill to have you here tonight. We don't take sides politically on our show, but to have the president of the United States here with me is an incredible honor."
Fallon is definitely taking political sides on Twitter.
Fallon includes the White House hashtag #DontDoubleMyRate.
Granted, what he tweets is not his show. Being partisan on Twitter doesn't directly relate to the show's content.
It's just when an entertainer becomes a mouthpiece for a politician in any forum, it's difficult to separate the person's politics from his performance.
It's alienating and makes the performance less enjoyable.
At the end of the day, I want to relax and laugh. That's why I liked Late Night, because it wasn't as politically alienating to me as an audience member as Letterman or Leno, who has become quite the Democrat hack.
It's too bad Jimmy Fallon is going the way of the others, really too bad.
Maybe I'll watch Seinfeld on Channel 6 tonight. It's "The Soup Nazi" episode.

Fallon is doing Obama's bidding.
