Wednesday night, Jay Leno began his monologue with a slew of jokes slamming Obama and his administration. It has never been unusual for the U.S. president to be fodder for jokes. However, Obama has spent years being spared.
It's about time that weird preferential treatment ended.
JAY LENO: The White House has a new slogan: 'Hope and let the Russians fix it.' Yes siree, Bob!Leno nails it: "Hopefully Americans who were confused about the president's plan feel better now knowing that he's confused, too.
You know, last night, President Obama spoke to the nation about Syria, and hopefully Americans who were confused about the president's plan feel better now knowing that he's confused, too.
Well, it was confusing. Wasn't it? First, President Obama laid out his reasoning for a strike against Syria, and then he gave the rebuttal.
Well, here's the really weird part: After all that, he then introduced Apple's new iPhone 5S. Why did he do that?
In the speech last night, President Obama asked for support from his friends on the left and his friends on the right. Apparently, he thinks he has a lot more friends than he really has. It looked like... I didn't see a lot of friends. I'm sorry. I didn't see a lot of friends.
Actually, he called on Congress to delay voting on any military action in Syria. He is asking, for the time being, Congress do nothing. Well, that shouldn't be too hard for them. That's the one thing they're good at. Oh, no problem.
Well, according to the Pentagon, Syria has a thousand metric tons of deadly chemicals. That is enough to make over ten million Twinkies. Do you realize that?
John Kerry has insisted that any military strike on Syria will be unbelievably small. Not as small as the support for a strike on Syria, but small.
No, Kerry claims that a military strike will send a message to Iran. Today, Syria said, 'Hey, if you want to send a message to Iran, bomb Iran. Don't bomb me. Bomb that guy.'
