Donald Trump calls “Bar” to refute claims about infighting, and to seek praise for rescinding the bill allowing “transformers” to use public bathrooms.

Conan O’Brien continued his popular series of phone calls between President Trump and his predecessor, Barack Obama, on Tuesday’s episode of Conan. The latest leaked audio contained talk of the Oscars, and a long list of nicknames Trump had come up with for Obama.

First, Trump questioned what Best Picture winner Moonlight is all about. When Obama answered that it’s “a coming of age story about a young, gay black man, Trump expressed surprise that “you could be both” gay and black.

Next, the current president reveals that his computer was taken away by a couple of young guys in suits.

“I’m in a real daze. I don’t know who anybody is,” Trump admits, before adding, “Who is this again?”

The Republican businessman went on to refute the “fake news” that Steve Bannon and the Star Wars-named “Rornce Porbus,” weren’t getting along, though the two could be heard arguing in the background.

“Oh crap, gotta go, Bannon’s got ‘Roonce’ in a headlock,” he said.

Later, Trump touched on his decision to rescind Obama’s bill allowing “transformers to use human bathrooms.” When Obama rightly pointed out that the bill was actually to prevent discrimination against transgender people, Trump revealed that Bannon told him it would prevent “robot cars from peeing in our bathrooms,” before confirming that he wasn’t actually reading any of the papers he had been signing.

The segment ended with Trump reading off a list of nicknames he had created for Obama, including “Barack Me Amadeus,” “Dwayne Barack Johnson,” “I Wanna Barack With You,” “Barack Paper Scissors,” “You Barack’d Me All Night Long,” and “Barack and Roll Hoochie Coo.”

“I worked very hard on these,” Trump said after Obama hung up the phone in frustration.
