Leno: ‘Not Looking Good for Obama - Today His Teleprompter Took the Fifth’

Jay Leno continued his humorous attacks on the current White House resident Thursday devoting much of his opening monologue to the various scandals plaguing the Administration.

At one point, the NBC Tonight Show host joked, “It is not looking good for President Obama. Today his teleprompter took the fifth.”

JAY LENO: I'm sure you know by now, Anthony Weiner, the peter tweeter, you know that whole story. Well, he announced he is running for mayor of New York City, but he's having some problems. A lot of Democrats are distancing themselves from him. They say he doesn't represent the Party. What are they talking about? Doesn't represent the Party? Every day, the White House gets caught with their pants down. He couldn't be more representative of the Party.

It is not looking good for President Obama. Today his teleprompter took the fifth. That's a bad sign when that happens.

In fact, they’ve changed their slogan from, "Yes we can" to "No I can't remember. I'm sorry."

Well, the latest scandal in Washington, of course, is raising questions about the IRS. You know, I have a question. Why is it called the Internal Revenue Service? How is having your money confiscated a service? Really? “Oh, thank you so much. We really appreciate it. Thank you."

Well, Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings of Maryland said that he worries the IRS scandal might have a chilling effect on the IRS and that they might be afraid to audit people. So, finally, some good is coming out of all of this. Thank you very much. Thank you.

Hey, here's something fun. I guess TIME magazine found a picture of President Obama at his high school prom back in 1979. Show the picture. I love this picture. Look at that. What is that weed around his neck? I'm curious.

The theme of the prom was "Hope and change out of that dress into something more comfortable," I believe.

See, that was back in 1979. Let me tell you how long ago that was. Back then, Obama had to ask a girl for her phone number. He couldn't illegally obtain it through the Justice Department. You had to ask a girl.
