Just a few days ago, Hope & Change™ paid a visit to the Tonight Show as Michelle Obama told Jay Leno how proud she is of the job her husband’s doing and how things are turning around.
Then, mere days later, Hope & Change™ paid another visit:
NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno has laid off between 20 and 25 employees while the host himself has taken a massive pay cut, according to reports.
Leno volunteered to slash his reported $30 million salary to save other staffers from being fired, according to Deadline.
The 62-year-old’s new salary is likely around $20 million, according to the Los Angeles Times.
This comes amid budget cuts from NBC’s parent company, Comcast, which has a number of employees who are big time Obama supporters. Why aren’t they sharing the prosperity like their hero has envisioned?
