[WATCH] ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ spoofs Obama press conference during week of scandals

Fake President Obama Jimmy FallonPresident Obama’s administration was rocked by a week of scandals, but the POTUS isn’t focusing on that. Instead, he’s apparently reading BuzzFeed.

Friday’s episode of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” included a spoof of a presidential press conference addressing the Benghazi, IRS and AP scandals.

“I know everyone is focusing on these issues, but let’s be honest,” the fake President said. “We all have much bigger things to be worrying about.”

Apparently one of those “bigger things” is BuzzFeed‘s list of ‘43 Things That Will Make You Feel Old.’

The President then took some time to express his amazement at the list, including the fact that Super Mario 64 was released 17 years ago.

“Come on, Benghazi?” the President exclaimed. “Don’t think about Benghazi. We need to think about Mario 64-gazi!”

While BuzzFeed is pretty distracting, it’s probably not going to work in this case, Obama.

Watch the hilarious video below:

    Benghazi will not go away. obama murdered our people and he must be held accountable. We demand his arrest. How many times and ways does he have to show he has no loyalty to America or her people? We the people have had enough. Until our government starts working for us again instead of trying to work us we will not trust anything they say or do. First order is arrest obama for leaving our people to be beaten, tortured and murdered. We leave not one soul behind! If it were a muslim he would have moved heaven and earth and we all know this to be a fact. Government takeover has failed. I believe we showed that by not giving our guns up to a dictator. Deport aliens by the masses, any criminal background, jihad, or connection to any of our enemies. We can and will cut all funds off to Washington and let it dry on the vine. We will uphold our Constitution. This is America a God loving, gun toting, free righteous law abiding people who will fight to the death to preserve what our forefathers built. The ones who were forsaken in Benghazi will not be in vein. This last traitorous act of obama is the catalysis for us to stand for what is right and good. Get rid of obama, IRS, Fed and all other government created entities that have failed or provide funds for the corrupt government to disobey their people. With God’s strength we will rebuild and once again prosper not only for us but for the world.
