Late-night host Jimmy Fallon poked fun at President Obama for striking a deal with Iran, saying it was an easier task than dealing with his botched healthcare rollout.
"The thing a lot of people are talking about is how Obama was finally able to get this deal with Iran," Fallon joked. "Basically what happened was Obama got tired of trying to fix healthcare and said 'Give me an easier problem, Iranian nukes. I'm on it.' "
The host of NBC's "Late Show" opened his program with news of the weekend deal, touching on Iran's agreement to temporarily freeze its nuclear program.
"When asked how they finally reached an agreement, Iran was like, 'patience, compromise, and ... oh, we lied.' "
