Leno: Trick or Treater Played Dead on My Porch Wednesday - Said He Was The Economy

For the second night in a row, Jay Leno hit Barack Obama for the lousy economic conditions in the nation.

During his opening monologue, the Tonight Show host joked about a trick or treater playing dead on his porch Halloween night claiming to be the economy (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

"Last night, I answer the door, there's a kid lying on the porch. He's playing dead," teased Leno.

"I said, 'What are you supposed to be?' He said, 'The economy.' He was dressed as the economy."

On Wednesday, Leno joked that as a result of the need for rebuilding in the storm-affected areas, Hurricane Sandy had already created more jobs than President Obama.
