President Obama’s Best Jokes from the White House Correspondents’ Dinner
The White House Correspondents’ Dinner went down on Saturday in Washington. That’s where all the media bigwigs get together and bring weird celebrity guests like Jessica Simpson and people from “Duck Dynasty”.
They get a comedian to host the show, and basically roast everybody in the room. This year it was Joel McHale from “Community”. And perhaps most importantly, the president himself gets to cut loose and tell a few jokes.
Here were some of President Obama’s best jabs…many of which were at his OWN expense:
“Of course, we rolled out healthcare.gov. That could have gone better…On the plus side, they did turn the launch of healthcare.gov into one of the year’s biggest movies.” (A screen behind him showed a picture from the movie “Frozen”.)
“MSNBC is here as well. They’re a little overwhelmed. They’ve never seen an audience this big before.”
“Colorado legalized marijuana this year. An interesting social experiment. I do hope it doesn’t lead to a lot of paranoid people who think the federal government is out to get them and listening to their phone calls.”
“Let’s face it, Fox, you’ll miss me when I’m gone. It’ll be harder to convince the American people that Hillary was born in Kenya.”
“The House Republicans give John Boehner a harder time than they give me. Which means orange really is the new black.”
“Gridlock has gotten so bad in this town, you have to wonder…what’d we do to piss off Chris Christie so bad?”
Check out his whole, 20-minute routine here:
“Every year, the White House doctor checks the President’s colon for polyps…and George Clooney’s head.”
“Robert De Niro is here tonight. I don’t do an impression of Robert De Niro, but I do an impression of Robert De Niro’s agent. ‘Ring ring. He’ll do it!’”
Here’s a pre-recorded video that fake vice president Julia Louis-Dreyfus made with REAL Vice President Joe Biden. It includes cameos from Michelle Obama, Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner:
