The 2015 White House Correspondents’ Dinner took place in Washington D.C., last night, and needless to say, President Barack Obama brought the house down.

During perhaps the funniest moment of the night, President Obama called on his “anger translator” Luther, portrayed by comedian Keegan-Michael Key.

Key as Luther was downright hilarious, first telling the predominantly white crowd to “hold on to your lily white butts.”

In a later moment, President Obama began discussing Hillary Clinton’s campaign fundraising to which Luther responded, “Oh yeah, she gon’ get that money. She gon’ get all the money. Khaleesi is coming to Westeros.”

As an added bonus, watch Luther in a sketch titled I Sunk Your Battleship, Bitch from late 2012.

Winner: The “Bucket List”

When life gets hard and the Republicans are cramping his style, Obama’s decided to just “bucket” — or at least another phrase that rhymes with it. It’s a new policy he’s decided on in the fourth quarter of his presidency.

Obama listed off his (rhymes with) “bucket list.”

“Take executive action on immigration? Bucket. New climate regulations? Bucket. It’s the right thing to do,” Obama said, picking up on criticism of his executive actions.

You get it, right? Watch that moment below.

It goes without saying that President Obama is the coolest president ever.
