Play of the Day: The Salad of Obama Scandals

Comedy Central

With three major scandals continuing to hurt the executive branch, late-night comedy is in its most fertile time. Jay Leno continued to compare President Barack Obama to  Richard Nixon, but found the bright side for Obama in such a comparison. Leno also mentioned the failed Obamacare repeals and had a suggestion for Republicans to make the president hate his own plan.

On The Late Show, host David Letterman found the Justice Department messing with his jokes and also showed a completely undoctored  “House Judiciary Committee Highlight of the Night.” Jimmy Fallon tied the Obama scandals to Hillary Clinton’s presidential hopes in 2016, as well.

Fast forward to 2:40 to see Stephen Colbert show how Eric Holder held up in a hearing against a representative who didn’t exactly use his words correctly.
