Jimmy Fallon goes political --- mocks Obama and John Kerry
Washington Examiner ^ | 03/04/2014 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 03/04/2014 11:50:35 AM PST by theruleshavechanged

Fallon also pointed out that Obama took a "selfie" photo with Bill Nye "The Science Guy" and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.

"I heard that photo set the record for the least re-tweeted photo of all time," Fallon joked, as the crowd laughed and applauded.

The little commie will change back to his complete fawning and love affair with BO the Mooch and the rest tonight. These guys stray once in a while to try and attract conservatives.

Lets be honest.

Its a lot harder NOT to mock Zero and Lurch, than it is to mock them.

Heck, a 3rd grader could mock those 2. It takes a real pro, for anybody with an IQ above 100, not to mock them.

Fallon does the full monty slobber fest over Obama his first week. Democrats position him as their main late-night plant, then his ratings start tanking so he gently appeals to the other 50% of America he told to kiss off during his first week.

Good luck with that, sport. Here’s hoping your show hits the skids in the next six months.

Bill Nye “The Science Guy” is not a scientist, has no education or training in that field. Just a big mouth

I can’t stand J Fallon anymore! I won’t be tuning in to his new show. Loved Johnny Carson and Jay Leno...

Yeah, he’s trying to trick Leno’s audience into coming back.

This is beneath the Wash Ex.

Fallon was put in there to replace the disobedient Leno, who dared to mock Obama on a realistic level.

This is no start, it’s maintenance.

Nope. Just a small diversion as he continue on the road to perdition.

He is all about getting young white viewers to vote for the Demon Rat party. He is not going to be allowed to be an independent voice. He works for NBC, remember?

NBC is the network that is going to have Michelle Obama on their season finale of “Parks and Recreation”. NBC is the network that had old Pinkeye Bob Costas rip the Russians for not celebrating sodomy. NBC is the network that has its “stars” appear with the White House and help them with their propaganda.

NBC: National Barack Channel

I think his slobber-fest appeal was to the 12% Strongly Approve crowd since it is so over the top.

He’s merely compromising with his delusions due to ratings.

Bill Nye hasn’t reached room temp yet

For some reason I thought he was long gone.

The audience was laughing at the Kerry joke way before he got to the punch line.

Well, Rahm and Fallon are best friends. Fallon was in Chicago this Sunday to take the Polar Plunge with his BFF. It was for Special Olympics. See images below:

Not to mention mocking NBC executives.

I watched for about four minutes, see no reason to EVER watch him again. His politics may suck, but I didn’t see any of that. He just basically sucks.

Suddenly Letterman looked good.

Well, I don’t think Fallon will get the ratings. But they’ll carry him and pretend everything is fine if so. They’re done with Leno

Too bad Leno pushed Ted Cruz around and mischaracterized him. Leno now has no home

My unsolicited $0.02?

Fallon seems to be a pretty nice guy. A Liberal, but whatever. Takes all kinds to make the world. Probably would be interesting to have a beer with and listen to a few of his stories.

But he's not funny to anyone except himself.

I've watched his old show a short handful of times. It's bad....not just "yikes, that joke was a klunker", but really, really bad. Nothing redeeming in any of his skits or monologues. Reminded me of the guy in High School who really, really, REALLY wanted to be one of the cool kids, would say or do anything hit that status, and only wound up losing his dignity.

Fallon’s viewer number are falling badly. He will fail miserably if he worships Obama!!!

I saw the Cruz interview. I don’t think Leno pushed him around. He basically just repeated all the conventional “wisdom” from the media talking heads. Ted dealt with it OK. I don’t think Jay will have any problem getting a late night show on another network if he wants one.

I watched Fallon one night, and it’s just his old show moved up an hour. I’m not a big fan, but I’m sure he’ll do OK in the ratings, probably better than Letterman, if not as well as Jay.

It was no endorsement of Cruz and it was a whole lot of pushing around compared with anything Leno would’ve given any lib, like Reid or Boehner and compared with what Carson EVER did to my of his guests so you can think what you want the fact is in comparison it was ridiculous and the pony is Leno did not brand hs elf conservative. And in the middle is a bad pls re to be for any entertained. He’ll have nothing to do but play cars

"Secretary of State John Kerry went on 'Meet the Press' yesterday and actually criticized Russia for its action in the Ukraine. He said, 'You just don't invade another country on phony pretext in order to assert your interest,' " Fallon began before landing the punchline. "Then he said, 'I mean, we stopped doing that, like, months ago.'"

That's more a joke against Bush than against Obama.

Still, it's a funny jab at Kerry.

It's not in Fallon's contract that he can't ever make jokes about Democrats (it's just that the Obamas are off-limits).

On the contrary, most people want a talk show host to be in the middle. They are not that political, and just want funny. The trouble with liberals is they end up being nasty and bitter which isn't funny (Letterman, Maher). The Cruz interview didn't seem to hurt Leno's ratings anyway.

Carson was not in the middle. He never was political at all not even in life.

What Leno did was to get nasty with Cruz. He’s funny in the monologue with Obama, whose supporters might take it as nasty.

You are confusing in the middle with neutral.

Leno has no place on NBC and he’ll have no place with conservatives.

Carson was the opposite. Not that Caron has to be emulated, but with his success, hosts who don’t emulate him are silly.
