Now that he’s a short timer, Jay does not feel constrained to stay within the network guidelines of “no Obama criticism and staying politically correct” — what a breath of fresh air!
“I was going to start off tonight with an Obama joke, but I don’t want to get audited by the IRS.”
On NSA surveillance: “We wanted a president who listens to all Americans – now we have one.”
On a new IRS commissioner: “He’s called ‘acting commissioner’ because he has to act like the scandal doesn’t involve the White House.”
On closing the Guantanamo prison for terrorists: “If he really wants to close it, turn it into a government-funded solar power company. The doors will be shut in a month.”
Concerning the Benghazi , Associated Press, and IRS scandals: “Remember in the old days when President Obama’s biggest embarrassment was Joe Biden?”
On Obama saying he didn’t know about the IRS scandal: “He was too busy not knowing anything about Benghazi to not know anything about the IRS.”
“The White House has a new slogan about Benghazi: Hope and change the subject.”
“It’s casual Friday, which means that at the White House, they’re casually going through everybody’s phone calls and records.”
“It is not looking good for President Obama. Today his teleprompter took the fifth.”
“Fox News has changed its slogan from ‘Fair and Balanced’ to ‘See, I told you so!'”
On Obama’s commencement address: “He told the young graduates their future is bright unless, of course, they want jobs.”
On a Chicago man who set a record for riding a Ferris wheel: “The only other way to go around and around in a circle that many times is to read the official report on Benghazi .”
On White House claims of ignorance on the scandals: “They took ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ out of the Pentagon and moved it into the White House.”
now the last, and I think best!–
“These White House scandals are not going away anytime soon. It’s gotten so bad that People in Kenya are now saying he’s 100 percent American.”

Thanks for the good laughs, Dusty! I don’t watch much TV, particularly the “stand ups” at night so missed all the “Bummers!”
Especially like the last one: People in Kenya are onto The Bummer, after he referred to himself as “American African” on his visit to Kenya.
FLASAWDUST: I think Mr. Leno has been paying attention to the rolling disasters that are the Obama White House for some time!!! Both on his show and elsewhere. I saw him in a private performance a few years ago, and he absolutely fried Our Dear Leader to a crisp. While one has to grant Obama is an easy target, it took more sand back then to point out both the character and policy flaws, and Jay did for 75-minutes. Devastating but delicious!!! CDE
Leno has been outing “Barry Hussein The Fraud” for a while now on and off ……… Glad to see/hear Leno was in ernest on this.
I don’t watch much TV either………… and I can’t remember the last time I saw any of the late night shows. I just thought Leno was hitting the bulls-eye on a bunch of these digs.
It is odd that he is the only entertainer to take comedic jabs at the president….I suppose someone sees the forest for the trees.
