Last month as NewsBusters reported, Jay Leno did a disgustingly sycophantic interview with President Obama.
On Monday's program, comedian Dennis Miller told the Tonight Show host, "You guys have quite a bromance there, don't you? I've come up with one of those celebrity nicknames for you two -- J-Lobama" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
JAY LENO, HOST: How you been, my friend?
DENNIS MILLER: I'm good. Is this the, this is exciting. Is this the seat the president sat in?
LENO: That’s the very seat the president sat in.
MILLER: Wow, that's kind of cool. You guys have quite a, quite a bromance there, don't you?
LENO: I'm friends with all people.
MILLER: I know. It's like a relationship. I've come up with one of those celebrity nicknames for you two.
LENO: What's that?
[ Laughter ]
LENO: Oh, J-Lobama. I like that.
MILLER: Yeah. The two of you. [Applause]
LENO: See, I know. [Applause]
MILLER: I think if his schedule ever opens up, say, January 21, 2013.
MILLER: He should become your Ed McMahon.
LENO: You think so? Ed McMahon?
MILLER: Yeah. I could see you guys doing comedy bits out here where you come out as Carnut the Magnificent.
LENO: Yes, yes. Very good.
MILLER: You have the turban on and the mechanic overalls. And you make predictions and he reads, "You are correct, sir," off a teleprompter.
LENO: Well, thank you. Thank you very much.
[Cheers and applause] Now you see, I sense, I sense -- hang on. I sense some sarcasm in your tone.
For those that have forgotten, even the perilously liberal Daily Beast found Leno's October interview with the President over the top writing, "Obama couldn’t have found a more willing accomplice. Leno—who wears his American flag pin on the right lapel, in contrast to the president’s flag-on-left—might just as well been scripted by David Axelrod."
