Last night in Washington DC, President Obama participated in the long tradition of delivering some jokes at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner taking aim at everyone from Cliven Bundy, Obamacare, his “yes we can” slogan, John Boehner’s tan, CNN’s coverage of the plane, FOX News, and gridlock in Congress.
The past few years the President has focused mainly on himself as a target of the good-natured jokes, but last night no one was safe from being included in his remarks.
The President is very adept at delivering a punchline. I guess when you have to deal with some of the jokers he does, something’s bound to rub off.
Here’s a few of his best lines. Check out more at Politico.
• “These days, House Republicans are actually giving John Boehner a harder time than they’re giving me, which means orange really is the new black.”
• On 2016: “Let’s face it, Fox, you’re going to miss me. It’ll be harder to convince the American people that Hillary was born in Kenya.”
• “MSNBC’s here, they’re a little overwhelmed. They’ve never seen an audience this big before.”
