Jay Leno: Obama ‘better off smoking crack than passing Obamacare’

Powered by Topple

It was not a good week for Obamacare. Not only did singers Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood take a shot at the health care law during Wednesday’s Country Music Association Awards show, but comedian Jay Leno took a turn later that evening on NBC’s “Tonight Show.”

“And President Obama saw gravity today – not the film, his poll numbers. Not good,” Leno said. “Latest polls show President Obama’s approval rating down to 39 percent. And Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s approval rating went up to 49 percent. How does this make Obama feel? He’s better off smoking crack than passing Obamacare – would have been up 10 points.”

Obama was beginning to believe his own promise that people could keep their health care plan if the law hadn’t changed, Leno said, until his pants caught on fire.

In a humorous “video metaphor” of the botched Obamacare website, Leno played a clip of a dog trying to go upstairs.
