Dennis Miller Tells Jay Leno: You and Obama 'Have Quite a Bromance' - It's 'J-Lobama'

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: Yeah.

MILLER: Huh?

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?

MILLER: J-Lobama.

[ 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.

[Laughter]

LENO: Yeah.

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.

[Laughter ]

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.

MILLER: No.

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."

Indeed.
