“Zimbabwe’s finance minister revealed yesterday during a press conference that his country, the entire country, has only $217 left in the government treasury,” Leno said,  “And today President Obama said, ‘Stop bragging, stop bragging’.”

Zimbabwe's Finance Minister Tendai Biti announced Wednesday that just $217 was left in the nation’s accounts after paying the salaries of civil servants last week.

Currently the United States is over $16-trillion in debt.
