Tonight Show Host Jimmy Fallon is a liberal guy, but even politics can’t get in the way of telling a good joke about a bad program. Fallon’s antics and burns about Obamacare were that you might expect from Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld or Andy Levy.
This Thursday is the deadline for Iran to meet a series of measures to delay its nuclear program,” Fallon said. “Yea and then Iran said, ‘you mean deadline, deadline? Or sign up for Obamacare deadline? Because that thing had extensions — it was like a long deadline. I mean, that thing had more extensions than ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta.’
Fallon then used the news that Dr. Dre is getting in business with a certain tech giant to hit Obamacare again:
That’s right, Dr. Dre got $3 billion from Apple,” Fallon joked. “He’s actually the first doctor to make any money since Obamacare passed.
Given his blatant pro-Obama position on the former Late Show, it is clear that Fallon is following in Jay Leno’s footsteps of being more even handed with attacking politicians of all stripes.
Comics were fearless with attacking President George W. Bush, but in 2014 it is quite noteworthy when any celebrity criticizes the current Commander in Chief. Well done, Jimmy.
