Comedian Jay Leno questioned President Obama about his professed love of broccoli Tuesday night, jokingly accusing the president of lying to children.

“Can you put your right hand on a Bible and say, ‘Broccoli,’” Leno asked.

“Let me say this — I have broccoli a lot,” Obama said, “I mean, no, you can ask my staff! It is one of my staples.  Me and broccoli, I don’t know, we’ve got a thing going.”

“Really?” asked Leno.

“It goes especially well with burgers and fries,” Obama replied.
