Leno said, “And today in Washington, President Obama met with leaders of the American Indian tribes and they honored the president by giving him his own Indian name: Running Deficits.

“That’s his Indian name, Running Deficits, Yes.  Or, actually, you know Native Americans are understandably very upset.  This country used to belong to them, and of course now it belongs to the Chinese; so they are very furious about that.”
