Last night, President Obama and Governor Romney shared jokes and laughs as they poked fun at one another during a political roast at the Alfred E. Smith Dinner, which is the Catholic Archdiocese of New York’s annual charity benefit.
Surprisingly, the usually robotic Romney delivered a funny routine clowning the President and making fun of his own elitist image. However, Obama struck back, tickling the crowd with wisecracks towards Romney and about himself.
It might have been a surprise to see Romney perform a comedy routine, but Obama, on the other hand, has been delivering political punchlines and jokes for years!
Here’s a round up of the President’s best jokes and political wisecracks.
Obama Releases Video Of His Birth
Despite the ongoing Birther Movement, which charged that the President was not a US citizen, Obama made light of it during the 2011 White House Correspondence Dinner. Just days after releasing the long form of his birth certificate, he stated, “Tonight, I’m prepared to go a step further. Tonight, for the first time I am releasing my birth video.” He also made fun of Donald Trump, one of the Birther leaders.
Obama: This is a Big F—— Deal!
Obama made a wisecrack about VP Joe Biden’s infamous f-bomb that was heard on live TV when he told Obama that his healthcare reform legislation was a big f—— deal in 2010.
