Funny Obama Inauguration Photo Bombs and Late Nite Jokes

Obama Inauguration Jokes

From Denny:  Since President Obama's second inauguration the web has had a lot of fun with the various amusing inauguration photos - including a few hilarious photo bombs, most unintentional.  President Clinton's is the most recognized but the funniest are of Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) hamming it up for recognition.  

And the late night comics just had to make us laugh at every moment, especially comments about the First Lady Eye Roll at annoying GOP House Speaker John Boehner.

We all enjoy a good laugh when we discover our politicians are more human than they let on in front of most cameras and on talk shows.  

Just check out this latest photo (January 2013) of the President running along the White House Colonnade with the active children of his newest Chief of Staff, Denis McDonough.  Give it 20 years and we may see one of the McDonough kids running for the presidency.  Nothing like getting in some election run practice with a presidential veteran!

From Stephen Colbert:

I'm still reeling from yesterday's inauguration disaster. First off, where was security? The Secret Service is supposed to protect the president and First Lady, but in the middle of a kiss, they were viciously photobombed.  Enjoy Gitmo, Malia.

Where did we go wrong? The Republicans had everything going for them – a terrible economy, an unpopular incumbent, and a positive message for the American voter: 'less than half of you are parasites.' (Romney's 47 percent of the country are just moochers comment that killed what was left of his campaign)

There once was a man name Barack,

Whose re-election came as a shock. 
He raised the taxes I pay,
And then turned marriage gay. 
And now he's coming after your Glock.

Bill Clinton and Kelly Clarkson at Inauguration

From Conan O'Brien:

At the inaugural ball, President Obama was caught doing some very stiff and awkward dance moves. In other words, Obama is already reaching out to Republicans.

Today's inauguration marked the first time ever a president used the word gay in an inauguration speech. It was the part of the speech where Obama pointed at the Washington moment and said, 'Whoever designed that thing must have been pretty gay.'

There's a photo from the Inauguration in which Former President Bill Clinton appears to be checking out Kelly Clarkson. Clinton said, 'That's not true, I was checking out Beyonce and Kelly Clarkson got in the way.'

Beyonce is remaining silent about charges that she lip-synched the national anthem. However, the charges are being strongly denied by a recording of Beyonce.

Steven Tyler defended Beyoncé after she lip-synced at President Obama's inauguration. Tyler said, "I know how she feels, I did the same thing at the Harry Truman Inauguration.'

During the inauguration, a teenage boy was spotted flirting with Malia Obama. At this moment, the boy is being flown to a remote location in Afghanistan.

Sasha Obama Yawn at Inauguration

Daughter Sasha yawns during very long ceremony.  What do you want?  It's freezing cold and all this is far too boring for an eleven-year-old.

During the inauguration, good morning America host George Stephanopoulos gave a shout-out to who he thought was Morgan Freeman, but was actually Celtics great Bill Russell. Stephanopoulos then went on to say he was so excited to be at Denzel Washington's inauguration.

Vice President Joe Biden was also sworn in for his second term today. Biden swore on the Bible to uphold the Constitution and to keep doing whatever it is I do.'

In his inaugural address, President Obama said America's possibilities are limitless. Unfortunately at that moment Lance Armstrong shouted out, 'That's what I used to think.

President Obama's inauguration is coming up. During next week's inauguration, he will be sworn in with not one, but two Bibles. Relax, Mr. President. We get it. You're not a Muslim. You're overcompensating.

Tickets to President Obama's inauguration have sold out. At least that's what the president is telling Joe Biden.

Malia Obama Photobomb

From Jay Leno:

Actually, you know who gave the shortest inauguration speech in history? George Washington. It was only like three minutes long. Well, sure. George Washington couldn't tell a lie.

On the news they made a big deal out of the fact that four years ago there were twice as many people at President Obama's first inauguration than there was at this one. That's because four years ago, twice as many people could afford to stay in hotels.

President Obama will be sworn in with his hand resting on two Bibles. Is that how screwed up Washington is now? One Bible can't get the job done anymore?

The White House announced today that the theme for President Obama's second inauguration will be 'Faith in America's Future.' The idea is to get our minds off of America's present.

Charles Schumer and Beyonce at Inauguration

Does Schumer look like a hungry gekko or what?  Sen. Chuck Schumer falls in love with singer Beyonce who lip-synched her performance, causing quite a controversy.  Previous artists pre-recorded their performances for Inaugurations past.

From Jimmy Kimmel:

More than a million people gathered in our nation's capital yesterday, and tens of millions more watched from home to celebrate the first lady's new haircut.

Most people seem to like the hair style, though some Republicans are demanding further cuts. But bangs aren't easy to pull off. As far as I know, the only other women who have done it successfully this decade are Jessica Biel and Justin Bieber.

The president gave a brief but powerful speech. He did not shy away from the many challenges he faces: a massive federal deficit, a conservative majority in the House, an aging population, runaway entitlements, humongous ears.

Michelle Obama's Epic Eye Roll at John Boehner

First Lady eye rolls GOP House Speaker Boehner's "remarks" - that or she was just starving from a long ceremonial day?  I know I would be running on empty after all this standing around for hours on end.

From Jimmy Fallon:

President Obama's inaugural parade will feature eight floats, including a Hawaii float to honor his birthplace, an Illinois float to honor the first lady’s home state, and a Kenyan float just to mess with Republicans.

On Sunday the White House will hold a private swearing-in ceremony for President Obama. Not to be outdone, on Sunday Republicans will hold a private swearing-at ceremony for President Obama.

The White House announced that the theme for President Obama's inauguration will be 'Faith in America's Future.' Which is proof that no one in the White House has ever seen 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.'

President Obama's team is promising special perks for donors who give at least a million dollars to the inauguration. Which is cool, but you know what else can get you a lot of perks? Keeping that million dollars.

Fiscal Cliff Fix

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) photo bombs Obama's oath of office

From David Letterman:

Ten days from now Barack Obama will be inaugurated. I'm telling you, it is really starting to look bad for Mitt Romney.

The inauguration will have a lot of corporate sponsors, big money, and corporations sponsoring the inauguration. It will be the same with the Kardashian baby.

Eric Cantor Is Not Impressed

Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) was not well impressed with the Inaugural Poem - or its reading but then he sneers at just about everything and everyone on a regular basis.

John Boehner Does Not Look So Well

Hey, was GOP House Speaker Boehner about to break out into one of his famous crying spells after President Obama finished taking his second oath of office?  Sure looks like it or as if to say, "OMG, we lost - again!  Reality bites!"

Romney Last Ditch Bid For Presidency

What 2012 Presidential loser Mitt Romney was really thinking as he wanted the opportunity to photo bomb.

From Seth Meyers:

President Obama delivered his inaugural address, which set a more liberal tone for his second term, especially the part where he showered the crowd with birth control pills.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr’s historic 'I Have A Dream' speech. As well as the 1 year anniversary of my girlfriend’s 'I had the weirdest dream' speech. Guess which one was longer.

The Only GOP Republicans Created in Four Years

From Bill Maher:

Already the Obama administration has been rocked by scandal. Beyonce lip-syncing; or at least we think she was lip-synching. Manti Te’o said it sounded very real to him. – on Beyonce possibly lip-syncing at the Inauguration

Lip-synching – let that be a lesson; if you are in Washington DC and you open your mouth and another voice comes out, it better be the NRA, an oil company, or a bank.

The Pentagon lifted the ban this week on women being able to serve. Yes, women can now serve in front line combat positions, proving that women will follow gay men anywhere.

New Rule: The media must give President Obama a few more days before they start covering the 2016 presidential race. They’re already speculating about Biden and Hillary. Come on, even Taylor Swift gives a guy a little more time than that. And why is she America's sweetheart? She's 17 and she's gone out with more men than Joan Crawford.

Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana said 'we must stopped being the stupid party.' Good luck with that. When Sarah Palin heard that, she demanded an apology. She said, 'How dare he insult hard-working, patriotic, idiotic Americans like me.'

Tom Tancredo, who was a congressman from Colorado and ran for president, made a bet that his state would not legalize marijuana. And of course, he lost that bet. And you know what he has to do because he lost that bet? Yes, he's got a suck on a joint. I just hope in the next few years he loses a bet on gay marriage.

Hillary: See You in Four Years

Works for me!  Hillary or Biden for 2016 is a win-win.

This was the funniest photo bomb of the 2012 election when Team Obama declared to GOP Team Romney:  
"This seat's taken!"  Talk about messing with their heads during a tough election.... Looks like this taunt was a lucky charm to come true for a second term.
