Jay Leno deserves some credit as practically the only one in Hollywood making fun of Obama for his total failure over Obamacare, his many foibles and outright lies. Sadly, Leno is about to be yanked off the air by NBC suits even as his ratings have been skyrocketing. This time, Leno jokes that Obama may as well start smoking crack like Toronto Mayor Rob Ford to hide his Obamacare failures.
You may recall that Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has been having a very bad month. First he had to admit that he was smoking crack, then a second video came out showing Ford screaming and cursing like a lunatic. Ford has apologized, but admitted that he’s a drug addict and even this week said he’s considering rehab.
Yet, even with all this foolishness, Ford’s approval ratings recently went up!
This is what spurred Jay Leno to make his joke about Obama, saying that he’d be better off smoking crack than passing Obamacare.
Transcript of Leno’s segment
JAY LENO: And President Obama saw gravity today – not the film, his poll numbers, not good. [Light laughter] 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 ten points. Would have been ten points higher. [Applause]
Actually, have you noticed the president backtracking a little bit on this whole deal? Like at a fundraiser earlier this week, President Obama said, no, no, no. What he promised was that you could keep your healthcare plan if it hasn’t changed since the law has passed. You know, he’s such a good speaker, he almost believed it himself [Light laughter] and then his pants caught fire. That’s when I knew. [Laughter and applause] When I saw the pants caught fire.
Well as you know, the ObamaCare website is having its share of problems. And here’s a video metaphor to explain, I think, what will eventually happen. Here, take a look.

ANNOUNCER: The following is a video metaphor for the rollout of ObamaCare. The dog represents ObamaCare. The stairs represent the uphill battle it faces during this massive rollout. Even though it gets off to a slow start, it’ll eventually be up and running. [Light laughter] Sure, it will be ass-backwards, but it’ll get there. This has been a video metaphor for the future of ObamaCare.
