Late Night Political Humor

“There was a lot of controversy for President Obama in Norway, because apparently, he snubbed the Norwegian royal family. He snubbed them by canceling lunch with them.

“Big day for President Obama. During his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech in Norway, Obama stated, ‘Let us reach for the world that ought to be — that spark of the divine that still stirs within each of our souls.’ Obama got those words from his new speechwriter, Ken Hallmark.” – Jimmy Fallon

“The peace prize was handed out in Oslo, Norway, but Oslo’s been in the news this week because of that big swirly thing in the sky over Oslo. Wait! Wait!

“Anyway, some people say that the light was a UFO coming to welcome Obama, which is of course ridiculous. Because if it was really a UFO, they would take Joe Biden back to his home planet. ‘Come on, Joe, you’ve bothered these people long enough. Let’s go and embarrass the people of Pluto.”‘ – Craig Ferguson

“The elementary school in Indonesia where President Obama went as a child, they just unveiled a statue of him as a 10-year-old. It’s very realistic. In fact, today Biden spent, like, 20 minutes talking to it.” – Jimmy Fallon
