President Obama Jokes About Himself, Jay-Z, And More At White House Correspondents’ Dinner

President Obama

President Barack Obama looked to be having a great time Saturday night at the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner. The dinner is attended by Hollywood celebrities, politicians, and members of the media.  This year Kerry Washington, Shonda Rhimes, Tracey Morgan, Gabby Douglas, John Legend, Victor Cruz, and Gayle King were all invited.

It is an event where the President is usually able to be more light-hearted and show his sense of humor. Our President did not disappoint.

President Obama entered the room to traditional presidential music before switching to DJ Khaled’s “All I Do Is Win”, saying, “Rush Limbaugh warned you about this, second term, baby. We’re changing things around here a little bit.”

He joked about his 2 of 22 shooting record at the White House Easter Egg Hunt saying, “I’m not the strapping young Muslim socialist that I used to be.”

Of course the situation with Jay-Z and Beyonce’s visit to Cuba was addressed: “But some things are beyond my control. For example, this whole controversy about Jay-Z going to Cuba; it’s unbelievable. I’ve got 99 problems and now Jay-Z is one.”

I think I smiled through the whole speech. Mr. President was very versatile and was able to be somber when necessary and crack jokes when appropriate. With no more presidential elections in his future, he was able to let his hair down so to speak at his first Correspondents’ Dinner in his second term.

Check out some photos and watch Obama’s full speech below:
