On Saturday night, Hollywood A-listers and Washington notables gathered for the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner in DC. Though recently touted as “nerd prom,” the affair has become a yearly excuse for the press to poke fun at Washington, for Washington to poke fun at the press and for everyone to poke fun at Joe Biden.
The event also offers the president an opportunity to show off his comedy chops, and for the second year in a row, President Obama did not disappoint. He fired off jabs at everyone and everything from CNN to Taylor Swift to George W. Bush’s new presidential library. And, proving himself to be the hippest commander in chief ever, he even snuck in references to Jay-Z lyrics and walked up to the podium with his new anthem blaring over the speakers “All I Do Is Win.” And as any good comedian does, he also worked in a few quips at his own expense. “These days, I look in the mirror and I have to admit,” he said, “I’m not the strapping young Muslim socialist I used to be.”
Watch President Obama in action!
