Jay Leno returned to “The Tonight Show” Wednesday and skewered Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders during the opening monologue.

On Wednesday night, the host of “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” briefly handed the former host of the show the reins.


“The most popular baby names of 2016: Noah and Emma,” he quipped. “Least popular baby names: Donald and Hillary.”

“Hillary Clinton says she is the most transparent candidate in modern history,” he added. “How many can see right through her?” (RELATED: Jay Leno: Politics Was Funnier When ‘Clinton Was Horny’ And ‘Bush Was Dumb’)

“I’ve been enjoying Donald Trump’s new reality show, The Amazing Racist,” he continued. “Trump is now threatening to have the judge he spoke out against deported back to Indiana.”

He then turned his sights on Sanders.

“Bernie Sanders [is[ still upset because he says his fundraising dinners didn’t raise as much money as Hillary Clinton’s. Well, of course they didn’t. Nobody wants to eat dinner at four o’clock in the afternoon,” he continued. “How much cream of wheat can you eat?”
