Jay Leno continued his humorous attack on the White House Thursday.
At the beginning of a series of opening monologue jokes about the various scandals plaguing President Obama, the NBC Tonight Show host said, “If Republicans really want to do away with ObamaCare, they should endorse it as a conservative non-profit - let the IRS take it down” (video follows with transcript and absolutely no need for additional commentary):
JAY LENO: Well this week will mark the 37th time House Republicans have tried to repeal ObamaCare. You know, if Republicans really want to do away with ObamaCare, they should endorse it as a conservative non-profit - let the IRS take it down. That's what you do. That's how you do it.
Well, today, today, President Obama announced the appointment of a man named Daniel Werfel as the new acting commissioner of the Internal Revenue. The other guy was fired. See, they're called “acting” commissioner because he has to act like the scandal doesn't involve the White House. That's how the acting, the acting part comes from right there.
Well, a lot of critics are now comparing president Obama to President Nixon. The good news for Obama? At least he's no longer being compared to President Carter.
It has not been a good week for President Obama. Got Benghazi, the IRS scandal, this AP records scandal, and, worst of all, his Chicago Bulls got eliminated by the Miami Heat. Oh, my G-d. Oh, my G-d. Yeah. You know what that means? LeBron James is going to get audited by the IRS. You know that’s going to happen. You know that’s going to happen.
