The Comedian In Chief: Barack Obama At The White House Correspondents Dinner

The full version in HD below:

Some highlights:

You might have heard we passed a health care bill. And some Republicans have suggested that the bill contains a few “secret” provisions. That’s ridiculous. There aren’t a few secret provisions in the health care plan. There are like hundreds. And tonight, in the interest of transparency, I’d like to share a couple. Let’s see here. This provision is called the “Bay State of Denial.” It reads, “This bill shall cover short-term memory loss related to the passage of Massachusetts health care reform.” Good news, Mitt, your condition is covered! This next provision is called the “Jersey Shore-Up.” It reads, “The following individuals shall be excluded from the indoor tanning tax within this bill: Snooki, J-Woww, the Situation, and House Minority Leader John Boehner.” This provision ought to put a common misconception to rest. It says right here: “If you do not like the ruling of your death panel, you can appeal it.”

Some of you are seasoned veterans who have been on the political beat for decades. Others here tonight began their careers as bloggers not long ago. But I think it’s fair to say that every single reporter in this room believes deeply in the enterprise of journalism. Every one of you, even the most cynical among you, understands and cherishes the function of a free press in the preservation of our system of government and our way of life. And I want you to know that for all the jokes and occasional gripes, I cherish that work as well. In fact, tonight, I wanted to present you all with a bipartisan, Congressional resolution that honors all those wonderful contributions that journalists have made to our country and our world. Unfortunately, I couldn’t break the filibuster.

And the winner of the night:

“I am glad that the only person whose ratings fell more than mine is here tonight. Great to see you, Jay. I’m also glad that I’m speaking first — because we’ve all seen what happens when somebody takes the time slot after Leno.”

  3. Presidents can’t watch TV, they have to lead a country! Relax, having a president make a joke at your expense is a pretty huge honor.

      they didn’t cut him off they just didn’t show the video he was referring to so it sounded like they were giving him the old heave-hoe

    I can’t say I agree with everything he has done. But thank god we have a president who can stand up and sound intelligent, even when he’s making jokes.

  21. Trok says:

    It was a great rip on Jay Leno. There must be little else that will make you feel like an ass more than the President himself calling you one. Hope Jay enjoys his seat on the bench right next to Kanye.

    So he´s funny too, good I think President Obama so far seems to try to do everything right

  25. Inez Deborah Emilia Altar says:

    So he´s funny too, I am not sure I managed to view the details, my mother´s computer had to have what was apparently a hacker´s illicit download removed, and the public library computer I am using has some problem displaying the text, it looks to me so far President Obama tries to do everythiung well.
