In October, Jay Leno joked that “don’t ask, don’t tell” was the administration’s de facto policy on questions about the Sept. 11 Benghazi terrorist attack.
On Thursday night, Leno lashed out at the lapdog media for dutifully accepting President Obama’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy on all things Libya. It would be “very dangerous to the White House if journalists should suddenly start asking real questions,” he said.
Not that Leno was willing to ask those “real questions” of the president. When Obama appeared on “The Tonight Show” during campaign season, they chatted about how math is hard.
What happened in Benghazi is no joke, but it’s good to see it making an appearance in a late night monologue. Now if only lapdogs were capable of feeling shame, Leno’s monologue might get us some answers on who changed the Benghazi talking points.
Those “real questions”? You “real journalists” can start any time now.
