Last night was the annual White House Correspondent’s Association Dinner, an annual schmooze-fest between members of the media and the US government’s executive branch. It involves a speech by the President, mocking himself, the press, and current events; followed by a performance by a prominent entertainer. This year Jimmy Kimmel came to the White House, the video of his performance and the President’s below. Watch for jokes about dog-eating, legalized marijuana, and swipes at Kim Kardashian.
The President began, joking about the fact the has to open for a person whose main demographic are the people that fall asleep watching Nightline.
Jimmy Kimmel started by greeting President Obama with “salaam.”
And here’s part one of Stephen Colbert’s impossibly funny 2006 roast of George Bush, which in my opinion is among the greatest moments of parody in the 21st century.
