Watch: Jimmy Fallon 'Burns' Obama Over Health Care Law
Comedian Jimmy Fallon isn't known for his animosity towards the Obamas, but he "burned" the President's health care law on Wednesday's Tonight Show.
Impersonating Russian president Vladimir Putin on a mock phone call with Obama, Fallon took a swipe at ObamaCare after the President accused him of forcing Russian allegiance upon Crimea: [Video below the break. Audio here.]
Below is a transcript of the segment:
11:48 p.m. EST
BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States: Look, look, we've got to talk about the situation in Ukraine. I mean, you invaded Crimea.
VLADIMIR PUTIN, President of Russia: No, no, no. You got it backwards my friend. Haven't you heard 80's comedian Yakov Smirnoff, everything in Russia is opposite. So technically, Crimea invade us.
OBAMA: Don't you see what you're doing though? You're forcing people to accept something that the majority of them don't even want.
PUTIN: Yes, in Russia we have word for this. ObamaCare.
[Laughter and applause]
OBAMA: Ouch, ouch, ouch. Now that hurt.
PUTIN: Yeah. Does ObamaCare cover burns?
OBAMA: Ha ha. Very funny. And no.
