The 101st annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner was held last night in Washington, D.C. President Obama stole the show with a stand-up comedy set that had him throwing shade like he was schooled by the cast of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
For almost thirty minutes, Obama roasted the media and took jabs at the soon-to-be familiar faces of the 2016 election. He even hilariously had “Luther” on stage, played by comedian Keegan-Michael Key of the Comedy Central series Key & Peele. Luther was deemed as his “angry” interpreter. (Uh-oh!)
Below, we’ve collected some of Obama’s some most impressive zingers from the last Commander-in-Chief Correspondents’ speech!
“Those Joe Biden shoulder massages are like magic. You should try one…oh, you have?”
“After the mid-term elections my advisors asked me: ‘Mr. President, do you have a bucket list?’ I said, ‘Well. I have something that rhymes with ‘bucket list.’
“Being President is never easy. I’ve still got to fix a broken immigration system. Issue veto threats. Negotiate with Iran. All while finding time to pray five times a day. It’s strenuous.”
“A few weeks ago Dick Cheney said, he thinks I’m ‘The worst President of his lifetime.’ Which is interesting because I think Cheney is the worst President of my lifetime. It’s quite a coincidence. Everybody’s got something to say these days.”
“Let me set the record straight. I tease Joe [Biden] sometimes but he has been at my side for seven years. I love that man. He’s not just a great Vice President, he’s a great friend. We’ve gotten so close, in some places in Indiana, they won’t serve us pizza anymore.”
“ABC is here with some of the stars from their big new comedy ‘Black-ish’. It’s a great show. But I have to give ABC fair warning. Being ‘black-ish’ only makes you popular for so long, trust me. There’s a shelf life to that thing.”
Not too bad Mr. President!
