Leno & Kimmel on Elections
Nov 07, 2008
“Well, right after Barack Obama clinched” his victory, “TV cameras caught Jesse Jackson standing at the celebration with tears” in his eyes. Not “because Barack won, because he makes more than $250,000 a year.”
Jay Leno: “I got to admit, as a comedian, I’m going to miss President Bush, because Barack Obama is not easy to do jokes about. He doesn’t give you a lot to go on. See, this is why God gave us Joe Biden.”
Jimmy Kimmel: “President Bush called Sen. Obama last night” to “congratulate him and this is an actual quote. He said, ‘What an awesome night for you and your family.’ I think his eloquence is what we will remember most about” Bush.
Jimmy Kimmel: “Obama thanked the President for his call and for all he did to help him get elected.”
