President Obama Cracks Jokes for Days at White House Correspondents' Dinner


President and First Lady Obama hosted the 100th Anniversary of the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner last night in Washington D.C.

Before we get into President Obama’s hilarious speech, can we take a moment to reflect on how absolutely gorgeous our First Lady looked last night?

Now that we’ve gawked appropriately at Michelle, check out some highlights from the Presidents hilarious speech.

On Obamacare: “Of course, we rolled out That could’ve gone better. In 2008 my slogan was ‘Yes, We Can.’ In 2013, my slogan was ‘Control, Alt, Delete.'”

On CNN’s exhaustive coverage of Malaysia Flight 370: “I’m a little jet-lagged from my trip to Malaysia. The lengths we have to go to for CNN coverage these days. I think they’re still searching for their table.”

On MSNBC: “They’re a little over-whelmed. They’ve never seen an audience this big before.”

On Donald Trump’s birth certificate investigation: “An American won the Boston Marathon for the first time in 40 years, which was inspiring and only fair since a Kenyan has been President for the past six.”

On Fox News: “Let’s face it, Fox. You’ll miss me when I’m gone. It’ll be harder to convince the American people that Hillary [Clinton] was born in Kenya.”

On John Boehner’s skin color “I’m feeling sorry, believe it or not, for the speaker of the House, as well. These days the House Republicans give John Boehner a harder time than they do me. Which means orange really is the new black.”

On the government shutdown: “One thing we’ve been unable to agree on is unemployment insurance. Republicans refuse to extend it. I’m beginning to think they have a point. If you want to get paid while not working, you should have to run for Congress just like everybody else.

On critics of Obamacare: “How well does ObamaCare have to work before people don’t want to repeal it. What if everyone’s cholesterol drops to 120? What if your yearly check up came with tickets to a Clippers game? Not the old Don Sterling Clippers, the new Oprah Clippers! Would that be good enough? What if it gave Mitch McConnell a pulse?”

Who knew he was so funny?
