ABC News featured a montage of some of the best jokes from late night comedians about the government shutdown. Surprisingly, there were a lot of jokes that even conservatives can appreciate.
“Congress is still getting paid,” Jimmy Kimmel said to the audible “boos” of his audience. “Let me tell you something, I want the names of the idiots who elected these people. Oh, wait. Oh, it was us? Never mind.”
Jimmy Fallon said that maybe if our government could simply explain ObamaCare then everything would be resolved. A President Obama look-alike from the audience then told him that ObamaCare was designed “to help insure all Americans.” Fallon, in reply, asked what that means. “No f**king clue,” was the answer from the faux President, who then darted off claiming to have an appointment with Joe Biden to go see “Kinky Boots”.
“The United States government, the most powerful country, is shut down, not in business,” said David Letterman. “No, put the ‘Out Of Business’ sign right up there on the White House. Nothing happening here. I mean, we are like a Carnival Cruise on land!”
“How many are worried about the government shutdown?” Jay Leno asked his audience. When there was no noticeable reply, Leno asked: “How many are more worried about it starting back up?” That question was met with resounding applause.
