Jay Leno opened his Tonight Show monologue Tuesday night with three solid minutes of jokes aimed squarely at President Obama and his administration for what he evidently sees as a less-than-effective handling of the Syria situation. For good measure, Leno threw in a crack about the unemployment numbers and even a birther joke at the president’s expense.
Leno, who taped his show before the president delivered his prime time address on Syria, began by turning an innocuous comment about the weather into a cutting remark about Obama. “You can tell fall is coming to the east,” he said. “The leaves are changing faster than the White House position on Syria. It’s unbelievable.”
