Democracy Now: President Obama Addresses Occupy Wall Street on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”

The Occupy Wall Street movement was a topic of conversation Tuesday night when President Obama appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”
Jay Leno: “As president, you look out your window, do you see this Occupy Wall Street movement?”
President Barack Obama: “Yeah.”
Leno: “What do you make of it?”
President Obama: “Look, people are frustrated. And that frustration has expressed itself in a lot of different ways. It expressed itself in the Tea Party, and it’s expressing itself in Occupy Wall Street. I do think that what this signals is that people in leadership, whether it’s corporate leadership, leaders in the banks, leaders in Washington, everybody needs to understand that the American people feel like nobody is looking out for them right now.”
