Suck-Up Late Night Hosts Joke With Bill Clinton About His Plans to Move Back to White House

Former president Bill Clinton appeared on The Late Show Tuesday night, where host David Letterman made a winking reference to Clinton's wife's bid for the presidency.

"Put it in a percentage," Letterman said. "What's the chance of you moving back to 1600 Pennsylvania?"

The audience responded with much clapter and appreciative applause at this wonderful possibility.

"First of all, Hillary has to win the nomination," Clinton replied. "If she wins the nomination, then she has to win the election. If she wins the election, the chances are 100 percent I'll move back, if, wait, if I'm asked!"

Seth Meyers, the former Saturday Night Live cast member who took over Late Night last year, made an adorable joke along the same lines in January when President Clinton appeared on his program.

"I want to get away from politics for a minute and talk about real estate," he said. "Do you think you might live in a different house in 2016?"

More clapter, more appreciative applause. Get it? He might move back to the White House if Hillary wins.

"I hope not, because 2016's the election year and I don't have any place to move," Clinton said, as Meyers guffawed.

Meyers also tried to discredit "Clinton Cash" author Peter Schweizer last month by pointing out his conservative political leanings, failing to mention the numerous mainstream sources that expanded on Schweizer's reporting about the Clinton Foundation's numerous scandals.

Meyers also did not disclose that he hosted the Clinton Global Initiative's Global Citizen Awards last year, which could be a small conflict of interest.

Keep speaking truth to power, comedians!
