Jay Leno continued his pressure on the White House Tuesday.
After a number of jokes about the Benghazi, Associated Press, and IRS scandals, the Tonight Show host joked, “Remember in the old days when President Obama's biggest embarrassment was Joe Biden?”
JAY LENO: Got a lot of people in shorts. It is very hot. The heat wave just continuing here in California. They’re warning this could be a long, hot summer. They’re telling everyone to cover up, and believe me, you don’t have to tell the Obama White House twice. They know about covering up. Not a problem.
Well today, today the White House unveiled its latest high-tech weapon: the IRS audit. Yes. Did you hear about this? The IRS has admitted they were targeting conservative groups. President Obama called the IRS targeting conservative groups, he called it “outrageous,” and said he would immediately have his Benghazi investigators look into it. So we will, we will find out, we will get to the bottom of this.
I love this. I love what IRS Commissioner Steve Miller said today about this whole targeting conservative groups thing. He said, "Mistakes were made, but they were no way made with a political or partisan motivation." "Mistakes were made." Try that during your next IRS audit. “Look, I admit mistakes were made. Can we move on?” That works so well.
Well, first it was Benghazi, then the IRS scandal, now this phone records scandal. Remember in the old days when President Obama's biggest embarrassment was Joe Biden? What happened to those days? What happened to those days?
