Jay Leno commits thoughtcrime on Benghazi

Font Size:

Letterman must really hate him now. Courtesy of Newsbusters:

“And this week, CBS News became the first news organization besides Fox to ask President Obama, ‘Who changed the Benghazi talking points?’ See, this is very dangerous to the White House if journalists should suddenly start asking real questions.”

Didn’t get much of a laugh. That’s partly because it’s less of a joke than a fact, but mostly because his audience doesn’t know what Benghazi is, for exactly the reason he’s talking about.

I think Leno was the first late-night comic to even mention Benghazi, right? And he’s hit Obama on it since then. I’m not sure if any of the other guys have, or if they’ve used it as anything but yet another excuse to bash Republicans. At this point, I’m pretty sure Leno is the only racist in late-night.
