From Associated Press:
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama poked fun at Jay Leno, the comedian headlining the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, and at former rival John McCain.
Obama dinged Leno as “the only person whose ratings fell more than mine.” Obama also said he was glad he was appearing before Leno.
Obama told the 3,000-strong mix of celebrities, elected officials, political appointees and journalists that “we’ve all seen what happens when you take the time slot after Leno.” Comic Conan O’Brien left NBC after his stint hosting the Tonight Show following Leno didn’t work out.
