Jay Leno takes aim at Obama administration for “covering up” scandals

Jay Leno

Things in Washington are getting so bad that even late-night comedian Jay Leno knows there’s something up with the Obama administration!

The “Tonight Show with Jay Leno” host unleashed Tuesday night during his opening monologue, jabbing at the White House for the wave of scandals it’s currently facing.

“They’re warning this could be a long, hot summer,” Leno said of the California heat. “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 joked about the White House’s latest weapon, the IRS audit. The comedian explained that President Obama had promised to punish those in the IRS who targeted conservative organizations.

“He called it ‘outrageous’ and he said he would immediately have his Benghazi investigators look into it,” Leno said. “We will get to the bottom of this!”

Leno also noted that in the good old days, Obama didn’t have to worry about scandals such as Benghazi, the IRS or the AP phone records grab.

“Remember the old days when President Obama’s biggest embarrassment was Joe Biden?” Leno asked. “What happened to those days?”
