Hannity and Ted Cruz Wholeheartedly Agree: NBC ‘Dumb’ for Firing Jay Leno

Fox News host Sean Hannity and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) expressed their displeasure Wednesday evening at NBC’s decision to let go of Jay Leno as host of The Tonight Show.

Referring to a clip of the late-night host mentioned earlier in the show, Hannity incredulously asked his guest: “Can you believe how dumb NBC is?”

“He’s trusted and fair,” agreed Cruz.

“And funny,” inserted Hannity.

“He’s the only late-night comic will be to make fun of Obama,” the Texan senator asserted.

“He makes fun of everybody!” Hannity exclaimed.

“The others don’t,” Cruz explained. “In fact, I remember [David] Letterman told a joke: ‘People ask me why I don’t make fun of Obama. Now with the IRS scandal, you know why.'”

“It was the exception proving the rule. Everyone laughed,” Cruz concluded, “but where is the next joke?”

Take note, NBC. Hannity and Sen. Cruz dislike your decision.
