Leno on Obama's Birthday Gift to Michelle: ‘He's Very Responsible When He's Spending His Own Money’

NBC Tonight Show host Jay Leno took a fiscal poke at President Obama Thursday.

After mentioning that it was Michelle Obama’s birthday, and that she told reporters that she wanted “a nice gift from Barack, but nothing extravagant,” Leno quipped, “Oh, don't worry. Obama is very responsible when he's spending his own money. Don't have worry about that. No problem there” (video follows with commentary):

Wouldn’t it be nice if others in the media were willing to mock Obama’s fiscal indiscipline rather than support and/or cover it up?
