From Jay Leno:

Iran has elected a new president named Hassan Rohani. Rohani has promised to improve Iran’s economy and fix the unemployment problem. If that doesn’t work, he’s going to blame the whole thing on President Bush.

 

From Craig Ferguson:

Clothing designers Dolce & Gabbana are in a lot of trouble. They have been found guilty of tax evasion. They probably won’t do any jail time. Which is a relief because stripes are out this year.

 

The judge ordered Dolce & Gabbana to pay a huge fine. It could be high as $13 million. That’s chump change for Dolce & Gabbana. Those guys giving up $13 million would be like Jay Leno giving up one car.

 

It would be like Lance Armstrong giving up one syringe.

 

Apparently, Dolce & Gabbana were an item for 23 years. They broke up in 2005 but still work together. That’s got to be tough, working with an ex. I go through it every time Drew Carey’s on this show.

 

From Jimmy Fallon:

Fashion designers Dolce & Gabbana have been sentenced to 20 months in jail for tax evasion. Their lawyers are appealing the sentence while Dolce & Gabbana are appealing the prison uniform. Orange is so last year.

 

That’s right. Dolce & Gabbana were convicted of tax evasion. It didn’t help when the judge asked how they pled, and they were like “Fabulous?”

 
 
 
Men’s Wearhouse stock fell Tuesday after the board fired founder and TV spokesman George Zimmer. It’s obvious why. Men’s Wearhouse fired George Zimmer because they found an identical brand name bearded guy for half the price of the retail bearded guy.
 
 
The IRS prompted a public outcry Tuesday by announcing plans to give out seventy million dollars in performance bonuses this week to IRS agents, IRS supervisors and IRS employees. It’s not much at all. You wouldn’t do that job for just a dollar a conservative.
