Leno Roasts Obama for Obamacare ‘Fumble’: You Didn’t Fumble, You Just Suck at Football
Think back to a few years ago, when Obamacare hadn’t been implemented yet. Could you imagine it being this big of a late night punchline? Jay Leno has gotten a lot of mileage out of jokes about the botched health care rollout, and continued on Friday night, calling out President Obama for saying he “fumbled” the rollout.
Leno explained, “A fumble is a turnover. That can happen to anyone. This is more like we told everybody we were good at football, we actually really suck at football.”
And Obama’s new fix, to let people whose plans got cancelled to keep them for another year, didn’t exactly make Leno feel any better, because the insurance companies get to decide for themselves. Leno said, “So here’s your choice, do you rely on the brains of the White House or the compassion of the insurance companies? Either way you’re screwed.”
