Play of the Day: Happy Birthday, Mr. President!

With an unspecified but serious threat to Americans worldwide, the government closed several embassies across Maghreb and Middle East this week . The news made Stephen Colbert yearn for better days, when Homeland Security used a color-coded system for threat levels . The Tonight Show ’s Jay Leno also mentioned the news, comparing the shut-down facilities to the United States legislature’s inactivity .

President Barack Obama turned 52 years old Sunday , marking the occasion with friends and family. Leno joked that National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden ruined a surprise party, Conan O’Brien mentioned Michelle Obama’s campaign for healthy eating and Late Night ’s Jimmy Fallon joked about Obama voter demographics.

Fast forward to 3:25 to see Fallon run a video piece of Obama and a co-worker celebrating.
