Skip to comments.Obama’s Jimmy Fallon Embarrassment
Posted on 04/25/2012 10:44:03 PM PDT by Brown Deer
President Obama's 'celebrity status' reached perplexing new levels last night on comedian Jimmy Fallon's comedy show last night. After watching this sketch, I think it's fair to say that he has 'jumped the shark.'
Last night on the Jimmy Fallon show, Obama "slow jammed" with Jimmy Fallon and his band about his plan to freeze interest rates for student loans, criticizing filibustering Republicans for blocking his plan.
Warning that the interest rates for student loans will 'double,' Obama warned that "some hard working students would be paying about $1000 extra just to get their education."
"There are some in Congress disagree," Obama said, backed up with jazzy music. "They say that keeping the interest rate low isn't a way to help our students, they say that we should be doing everything we can to pay down the national debt, well, so long as it doesn't includes taxing billionaires."
"But their position is that students just have to make that student rate increase work," Obama states. "Frankly, I don't buy it."
"The Barack-ness monster ain't buying it," Fallon croons.

Thats One Good Way To Fallon Your Face
Its funny hearing Obama trash Billionaires, he sure has no problem hanging with them and collecting money from them for his re-election campaign
You forget Obama is playing to his immature stupid base.
This will play well with the fleas and maggots that will vote for Zer0.
Jumped the shark? More like Obama went full retard. Everyone knows you never go full retard.
All you gotta' do is tell them don't forget to vote on Wednesday and problem solved.
His best work is some Capital One commercials with a baby who throws cereal at him.
Whaaaa? When did this happen? When did this HAPPEN??! No way.
Sheesh! Next you'll be telling me he's an ineligible usurper or something.
Let's hope his political show is canceled after only one horrific
“This smells like desperation.”
The Kenyan Pirate has probably received some very disturbing news (that will never be shared with us little people) that he has lost the “youth vote” in a big way. Even if he washes out student debt (which only impacts some young people), he can’t obscure the fact from them any longer that not only won’t they have the lifestyle their parents had, they won’t have anything that remotely resembles it.
His minstrel show indicates how bad it is, and how poorly the media can influence the electorate at this point.
;)Thanks for for protecting our VP on the trail. Dukakis could have been Pres if not for the protection he received through the campaign.
(just think, I actually voted for that liberal idiot when I turned 19 that year. How far I have come politically.)
Only an observation....but we are approaching the point where a comedian like Junior Samples from Hee Haw...could probably take enough votes and win the presidency.
He's an entertainer.
The purpose of an entertainer is to provide us with entertainment. To amuse us and to temporarily divert us from reality by way of providing us with a "performance" of some type, be it singing, dancing, acting or just generally making us laugh by being goofy.
Back days of old, kings and other monarchs would keep some entertainers on hand in their court for both their own amusement and for that of their subjects. So while something serious was going on that day, like a be-heading or a torture (quite common back then), these entertainers would relieve the tension by capering and prancing around with their silly antics. They called them court jesters.
Why does anyone think he’s embarrassed by this? He surely thinks he’s scored big with this.
Obama is a self centered douche bag.
Did I mention he is a communist?
You mean the POTUS with the mostus?
What a joke O is, clowning around like hes some junior high goof, when we have such serious issues, to make light of them, when people are hurting. A bozo.
Progressives are saying how incredibly cool obama looked.
...so long as it doesn't includes taxing billionaires."
Is this what Obama said or do they have toddlers writing articles for Fox News now?
This is so bad even "I" had to GN it up!
Two no talent hacks who have never worked for a living, stickin’ up for professional students. Thanks Brown Deer.
The audience and commentators loved it. It think it played well to the people who like that kind of stuff.
