Watch Seth Meyers And Amy Poehler Drool All Over Old Handsome Joe Biden, Just Like Any Of Us Would (Video)
Bill O’Reilly got Barack, Jimmy Fallon got Michelle, so it’s only fair that Seth Meyers would get the Vice President. If any other special Teevee events come along, they’ll have to choose between Dr. Jill Biden or the President Pro Tempore of the Senate; it’s in the Constitution. (Do Al Haig jokes even work anymore?)
Meyers’s first guest was Amy Poehler, the better to set up that silly clip from Parks & Rec. NBC is pulling out all the synergistic programming stops in this one. Also they talked trains, and Joe Biden really likes trains. And Meyers gets the scoop of the century, discovering who OHJB was pointing at during the State of the Union.
Over at the Daily Caller, Jamie Weinstein does some Advanced Concern Trolling over the fact that Poehler, who co-hosted “Weekend Update” with Meyers on SNL, was Meyers’s first guest:
Biden was the second guest on Meyers’ debut show, not the first, which could be seen as a slight to the man who is next in line to be the President of the United States. Traditionally, the most important non-musical guest gets top billing on late night shows. On Meyers’ first show, that honor went to comedian Amy Poehler
Aw, Old Handsome Joe, YA BURNT! This is pretty much the equivalent of noticing that Deputy Secretary Yevgeny Kissoff isn’t standing on Lenin’s Tomb during the May Day parade — even the fawning lapdog liberal media no longer respects the Obama administration.
