Jay Leno wasn’t buying that pile of horse manure.
Leno has consistently tweaked Obama in his Tonight Show monologues since the early days of the president’s administration, the same way Leno handled President George W. Bush and President Bill Clinton.
This week, Leno turned up the heat to scorching levels while some of his peers resorted to full spin mode regarding Obama’s cascade of scandals. Tuesday night, Leno mocked Obama’s commencement address at Morehouse College as well as the president’s claim that he learned about the latest scandals hitting his administration from watching news reports.
