Last night, the White House hosted their 100th (yes, 100th!) Annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, which had to be one of the funniest events to occur in the Presidential building yet.
Tons of celebrities were in the building to share laughs while mingling with one another, but when it all comes down to it, President Obama‘s speech stole the show.
Not only did the leader of our country open up his big moment with a reference to his appearance on Between Two Ferns, but he also poked fun at Obamacare, guests in the building, and of course, Republicans.
He said of his own healthcare system:
“I admit it, last year was rough,” Obama said. “Sheesh, at one point, things got so bad the 47% called Mitt Romney to apologize.”
“Of course we rolled out healthcare.gov. That could have gone better,” the president continued. “In 2008, my slogan was ‘Yes, we can.’ In 2013, my slogan was ‘control, alt, delete.’ ”
He also poked fun at CNN and their over-coverage of the missing Malaysia Flight:
“I am happy to be here, even though I am a little jet-lagged from my trip to Malaysia,” Obama said. “The lengths we have to go to get CNN coverage these days. “I think they’re still searching for their table,”
He also continued to take friendly shots at House Speaker John Boehner, Fox News, and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie after his rough year.
Along with President Obama, comedian and actor Joel McHale, had his own zingers ready for the crowd as he hosted the star-studded event.
The Community star didn’t hold back as he poked fun at the Prez, Jessica Simpson, Bill Clinton, The Bush family, and tons more. Being that he has his own roasting show on Comedy Central, it must not have been too hard for him! Here are some highlights:
On CNN’s Malaysia 370 coverage:
“100 years ago, CNN was only searching for the Wright Brothers plane…CNN is desperately searching for something that’s been missing for months: their dignity.”
On Canada in the news:
“Between Rob Ford, Justin Bieber and Ted Cruz, you just want to tell Canada: “Hey, hey. Relax. We already have a Florida.”
On Hillary Clinton running for President:
“Hillary Clinton has a lot going for her as a candidate. She has the experience, she’s a natural leader and as our first female president, we could pay her 30 percent less. That’s a saving this country could use!”
On Donald Trump:
“People are asking, ‘will Donald Trump run again?’ And the answer is: ‘does that thing on his head crap in the woods?’ I actually don’t know. I don’t know if that thing on his head has a digestive system.”
On Joe Biden:
“It’s crazy to think that Joe Biden is only one heartbeat away from no one taking him seriously as President.”
On Chelsea Clinton’s pregnancy:
“In nine months we will officially have a sequel to Bad Grandpa. When the baby is born, do you give Bill Clinton a cigar?”
On Fox News:
“Fox News is the highest rated network in cable news. And it’s all thanks to their key demographic: the corpses of old people who tuned into Fox News and haven’t yet been discovered.”
On Hollywood and Washington mingling:
“There’s a lot of celebrities here tonight. There the ones who don’t look like ghouls.”
“Now, over 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, which is impressive, until you realize that Ashley Tisdale has 12 million Twitter followers.”
On the George Clooney’s recent fight at the Wynn:
“Every year, the White House doctor checks the president’s colon for polyps and George Clooney’s head.”
