Jay Leno Slams Obama’s Feckless Syria Policy

-By Warner Todd Huston

Jay Leno has been hitting Obama more and more as he winds down his hosting of NBC’s The Tonight Show, and on the day Obama delivered his speech on Syria, Leno smacked the President on that very issue.

Leno let loose a cascade of jokes showing how foolish and feckless Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry, and the suddenly invisible VP Joe Biden has been on Syria, even working in a new “birther” joke into the mix.

Leno began by turning a remark on the weather into a slam on Obama’s Syria policy. “You can tell fall is coming to the east,” Leno said. “The leaves are changing faster than the White House position on Syria. It’s unbelievable.”

Then Leno slammed Secretary of State John Kerry joking that he “has given Syria one week to hand over its chemical weapons. And if they don’t, he’ll give them another week. So that’s kind of where we are right now.”

Leno wrapped up his series of Syria jokes with two more saying that one good thing has come out of Syria: Joe Biden has stopped talking. And then said that foreign countries are not so happy with Obama these days. In fact…

“President Obama’s foreign policy is taking a beating, especially abroad,” Leno jabbed. “They’re not as excited about him as they used to be. In fact, people in Kenya are saying, ‘We’re positive he wasn’t born here.”

It is interesting to see Jay Leno slamming the President more every night, isn’t it?
