Count Jimmy Fallon as the latest person to poke fun at President Obama.

The late night host railed on Obama in the wake of last week’s news that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel quashed plans to name a new $60 million high school after the president.

“More bad news for the president: Chicago is reversing its plan to name a high school after President Obama because it received multiple complaints from people in the community,” said Fallon.

“I guess parents were afraid their kids would spend eight years at the school and still get nothing done,” skewered the “Tonight Show” host.

The school is still scheduled to open in 2017, but without the name of the former Illinois senator.

Fallon also joked about the latest White House news regarding Omar Gonzalez, 42, who hopped the White House gate Friday and made it all the way inside the front door before he was finally apprehended by Secret Service.

“Officials are wondering why it’s so easy to get in, while Obama’s wondering why it’s so hard to get out.”
