Johnny Carson’s Head Writer Hints Leno Was Ditched Over Obama Jokes

Siller: Other hosts refuse criticize president due to “fear of being labeled racist”

Echoing a suggestion we first made earlier this month, Johnny Carson’s head writer Raymond Siller hints that NBC may have replaced Jay Leno with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show due to Leno’s increasing tendency to crack uncomfortable jokes at Barack Obama’s expense.

Writing for Breitbart.com, Siller, who was the head writer on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson for 12 years, argued that Leno was ditched because unlike other comics he was, “the only one willing to launch comedic drones over the current West Wing.”

“His competitors haven’t exactly hammered President Barack Obama, hardly a smidgen. The paucity of Obama jokes is the dog that didn’t bark. Like their news anchor counterparts, our hosts go gentle into that late night, despite the target-rich environment of this administration. With his pen and phone, our selfie-absorbed president is one whacked uncle away from appointing himself Supreme Leader,” writes Siller, adding that Bill Clinton was “savaged” during his term in office but Obama has been ignored due to comics’ “fear of being labeled racist.”

Siller notes the fact that Leno enjoyed ratings dominance, a factor that cannot explain him being ditched. Highlighting the declining ratings of news networks, the Emmy Award nominee points to MSNBC and CNN’s penchant to act as state media as the reason for their demise.

“The CNN and MSNBC talking heads are reliable Obama hackolytes whose ratings tank because they’re in the tank for Obama. They just can’t help themselves. Ideology trumps business acumen,” he writes.

As we previously highlighted, Leno began writing a series of anti-Obama jokes into his monologue back in 2012. While it wasn’t out of the ordinary for Leno to bash a president, the fact that his quips were largely based around conservative talking points like Benghazi and Obamacare was somewhat strange.

In December 2012, Leno even remarked that a journalist who started asking real questions would be “very dangerous to the White House.”

Was it a mere coincidence that Leno was off the air within a year of Comcast Corporation’s 2013 buyout of General Electric’s 49% stake in NBC? Comcast donated over $300,000 dollars to Obama’s 2012 presidential campaign.

Leno’s departure from the hit show, despite consistently good ratings, was surrounded by an air of mystery. The talk show host alluded to having been stabbed in the back by NBC after previously insisting that he would continue fronting the show until he keeled over, which according to the New York Times fed “the lingering suspicion that Mr. Leno remained somewhat perturbed with NBC’s latest decision to replace him.”

Questions About Obama's Birth Certificate Won't Go Away


Last Monday, December 6, 2010, on his radio show Rush Limbaugh wondered where Wikileaks’ “real good stuff” is, including Obama’s original, long-form hospital-generated birth certificate, which has still never been released two years into his presidency.

A day after, December 7, 2010, at the end of a 20-minute Answer Man session about baseball, hunting, firearms, personal responsibility and smaller government, Baltimore Orioles slugger Luke Scott said: 

“(Obama) was not born here. That’s my belief. I was born here. If someone accuses me of not being born here, I can go — within 10 minutes — to my filing cabinet and I can pick up my real birth certificate and I can go, ‘See? Look! Here it is. Here it is.’ The man has dodged everything. He dodges questions, he doesn’t answer anything.”

And when the birth certificate becomes fodder for late-night comics, then we know it’s really gone mainstream. Last night, it was the butt of Jay Leno’s mockery. Leno said:

“I’ll tell you how bad things are getting. Now Democrats want to see his birth certificate.”
