Wonder will Jay Leno be at the Saint Patrick’s celebrations in Gotham next March?
US chat show star Jay Leno has dubbed Taoiseach Brian Cowen a “drunken moron”.
The Tonight Show host made the comments after he showed his Tonight Show audience a photograph of Cowen. He told the crowd that the man in the picture was not a bartender, but “the Prime Minister of Ireland” to uproarious applause. Leno showed the dishevelled-looking Mr Cowen, asking the question: “Looking at that guy. How many think he is a bartender?”
He then asked if the audience thought he was a “nightclub comedian” or a “politician” – before revealing he was the “Prime Minister of Ireland” to loud applause and laughter. “He’s Brian Cowen, the Prime Minister of Ireland. Oh God, it’s so nice to know we’re not the only country with drunken morons, isn’t it?” the star said.
