Play of the Day: Obama’s Face and Race

White House

The White House scandals have been a problem for the administration of Barack Obama, but late-night comedians have been eating it all up. Jay Leno continues to hammer Obama for the Benghazi reports, comparing the official stories to a Chicago man’s recent record-setting day.

Michelle Obama’s recent comments about the president gave the opportunity for nearly identical jokes from Leno and TBS’ Conan O’Brien. O’Brien also cited a recent survey that measured people from different racial backgrounds and their reaction to Obama’s facial expressions.

Late Night’s Jimmy Fallon used his usual inoffensive humor on the scandals. Hitting popular target Joe Biden, Fallon talked about Obama being in the dark about the scandals. Fallon later brought HBO’s popular Game of Thrones series  into his jokes about the president.

Fast forward to 2:50 to see why Rush Limbaugh thinks Barack Obama’s race has really benefitted him.
