President Barack Obama has for years been praised as a great orator, and on Saturday night, he proved yet again that those skills serve him just as well when doing stand up comedy as they do during political speeches.
Obama took the podium during the annual White House Correspondents’ dinner, where he delivered wise-cracks aimed at himself, CNN, FOX, Republicans, and plenty more. Like in years past, the President appeared incredibly comfortable in the role of funnyman.
Joel McHale closed the evening, sending lighthearted jabs at everyone from Obama to Chris Christie to Justin Bieber.
Maybe the funnest part of the evening, though, was when Vice President Joe Biden teamed up with Julia Louis-Dreyfus for a seven-minute pre-taped sketch. The two VPs ‒ one for real, the other on HBO ‒ raised hell: breaking into the Oval Office, sneaking ice cream, writing newspaper headlines about themselves, getting tatted with Nancy Pelosi. And it was amazing.
As usual, there were plenty of celebs in the house for the annual event, too.
