JARRETT: I like Jay Z, I like Jay Z.

ANOTHER ROUND: Got a favorite song?

ANOTHER ROUND: He was here?

JARRETT: He was at the White House. He came and he visited the president, and you know what the president said to him? [Because] he was a little nervous — bless his heart, he's really a very nice young man, and the president said, "Can you believe that we're both sitting in this Oval Office?"
