Did you know that before he was the star of a Daniel Day-Lewis/Steven Spielberg movie, and well before he was a vampire hunter, Abraham Lincoln was actually a president? It’s true! Conan O’Brien visited the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum in Springfield, Ill. while “Conan” shot a week of shows in Chicago.
A lifelong Lincoln who frequently made the Great Emancipator a character on his show, O’Brien got the chance to make some history jokes at the expense of both John Wilkes Booth and Mary Todd Lincoln at the museum.
Watch as Conan goofs around in the Lincoln gift shop, interviews four Lincoln impersonators and brings out a sexified version of the First Lady. Who knew the 16th president would be so hot in Hollywood 150 years after his death?
