During his monologue Thursday night, “The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon made fun of President Barack Obama’s handling of the economy.
Fallon joked that those attending Obama’s Wednesday event were not there to simply support the president’s agenda. They were actually there because they don’t have jobs to go to daily.
“Here’s what everyone’s talking about tonight: during a speech in Cleveland yesterday, President Obama criticized the GOP’s budget proposal and said it’s jus a path to prosperity for those who are already prospering,” Fallon said. “Then he stopped to wipe the spit off everyone in the front row. Guess I probably pressed the patience of the people partaking.”
“During that same speech, President Obama discussed the country’s successful economy and said, ‘I’m going to take a little credit.’ Then the people at the rally were like, ‘Dude, we’re all here in the middle of the day because we don’t have jobs. So stop talking about how good the economy is. I want to go to work!'” Fallon said, skewering Obama. “That’s right. Obama discussed the successful economy and said ‘I’m going to take a little credit.’ Then the economy got bad again and he was like, ‘Republicans did it.’ Interesting.”
