Add syndicated conservative columnist Cal Thomas to the list of those upset over President Obama’s appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this week.

Thomas expressed his displeasure Saturday afternoon on Fox News Watch with Obama’s light-hearted appearance on the NBC late night show.

“There is a certain decorum about the presidency, I think,” Thomas complained. “When you take it on and lower it to that level, I think it does damage to the image of the office. It’s a distraction from the important stuff going on. The jobs and the economy, foreign policy issues.”

Thomas isn’t the first on Fox this week to criticize Obama’s appearance on Fallon. Gretchen Carlson bizarrely thought Wednesday that Obama’s decision to appear was “nutso.”

MSNBC’s Ed Schultz slammed Carlson for her comments later in the day.
