Comedian Jay Leno poked fun at President Obama last night for his evasiveness on Libya and his campaign’s disturbing “Your First Time” video.
During his opening monologue of NBC‘s “The Tonight Show,” Leno announced “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is back, but then told the audience it is not about the military’s policy on homosexuality. “It’s President Obama’s new policy for questions about Libya,” Leno joked. “Don’t ask. Don’t tell.”
The late-night comedian also brought up the Obama campaign’s creepy Lena Dunham ad. He called the ad “kind of clever” and explained how it made a comparison between voting and having sex for the first time to “woo young, female voters.” Then Leno scored a direct hit on Obama’s unimpressive record with his punchline. “But on the other hand, if it is your first time, you might want to do it with someone who doesn’t take eight years to get the job done,” Leno said, eliciting hearty laughter from the audience.
Unlike other comedians, who refuse to hit Obama too hard, Leno levels both sides of the aisle with his jokes, not shying away from poking fun at the president. In September, Leno jabbed Obama for the lousy employment numbers in August.
