Obama’s hilarious speech from the White House Correspondents’ Dinner
Just when we think President Obama has pushed the envelope on funny about has far as he can push it by dropping the mic after his slow-jam the news segment on Jimmy Fallon, the guy breaks out a bin Laden joke.
“Last year at this time,” he started speech at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, “in fact on this very weekend, we finally delivered justice to one of the world’s most notorious individuals”—at which point he queued a picture of Donald Trump.
Obama has been turning up the charm lately, reminding us that he still knows how to be funny. With the economy still teetering, high unemployment on the verge of becoming permanent rather than cyclical, and no aggressive policy suggestions even on the table for how to ensure a recovery, laughing us all the way to the ballot booth seriously might be one of Obama’s best campaign tools. Take a look below and tell me you don’t at least kinda want to vote for this guy.
