Play of the Day: Kids Say The Darndest Things... About Obama’s Scandals

TBS

President Barack Obama’s terrible run of luck continues. Despite scandals involving the IRS, Benghazi and the Justice Department secretly obtaining phone records from the Associated Press, Obama’s approval ratings are steady. Conan O’Brien noticed and mentioned that scandals don’t register until they involve an intern and some sex. On The Late Show, David Letterman invoked a fourth scandal for Obama.

On NBC, Jimmy Fallon looked at Obama’s recent remarks, including some tweets -- real and made up -- that show Obama’s recent turn towards honesty. Jay Leno also brought Obama’s birthplace into the scandals, saying Kenyans all now believe Obama was born in the United States.

Fast forward to 4:00 to see  how how kindergarteners treated a surprise visit to their Baltimore school by Obama.

CORRECTION: The original version of this story incorrectly stated that the Justice Department tapped Associated Press phones. Justice secretly subpoenaed and obtained phone records from AP.
