Play of the Day: Obama Finds Your Correspondence Very Boring

NBC

With Saturday Night Live on summer hiatus, Friday is a slow evening for late-night comedy. However, The Tonight Show’s Jay Leno spent most of his monologue highlighting the recent scandals surrounding the Obama administration. Leno made reference to the IRS spending scandal by bringing up the famed dancing video and mentioned the popularity of the agency by saying “we’d all chip in” for an expensive “going away party” for the agency. Leno also joked about the National Security Agency’s phone records program, giving Obama a new nickname.

On Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, the show brought out its version of “Barack Obama” to give a small speech about the program, eventually coming to the point that American text messages, phone calls and emails indicate that Americans are very boring. Fallon also made mention of Russian president Vladimir Putin’s split with his wife.

Fast forward to 2:35 to hear Leno explain how Congress is going to deal with the national debt.
