Jay Leno Tears Into Obama Scandals: ‘Remember When His Biggest Embarrassment Was Joe Biden?’

Jay Leno did not waste anytime before digging into President Obama for his sudden barrage of scandals during his Tonight Show monologue last night. The host tied together the controversies over Benghazi, the IRS targeting conservatives and the Justice Department wiretapping the AP into one larger narrative, asking, “Remember the old days when President Obama’s biggest embarrassment was Joe Biden?”

“They’re warning this could be a long, hot summer,” Leno began, supposedly referring to the California heat wave. “They’re telling everyone to cover up. And believe me, you don’t have to tell the Obama White House twice. They know about covering up. Not a problem.”

He then moved on to the White House’s “latest high-tech weapon: the IRS audit.” Of this scandal, Leno said Obama “called it ‘outrageous’ and he said he would immediately have his Benghazi investigators look into it. We will get to the bottom of this!”

Listing off the various scandals that appear to be consuming the White House this week, Leno reminisced about simpler times in the Obama administration. “Remember the old days when President Obama’s biggest embarrassment was Joe Biden?”

When Leno and Jon Stewart are equally angry with the president, you know he’s got some problems.
