The White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, in recent years, has become a time for the President to become quite the comedian.
Last night, The Empire Struck Back! President Obama was hilarious got rave reviews this morning. Poor Jay Leno. Not so much. As stated, the ‘Empire’ did strike back.
The President started off with lots of self-deprecation. I think he was every bit as good as Jon Stewart.
Update: Combined Obama routine with Jay Leno. Leno starts around minute 17. I thought Leno was just not funny.
What were your favorite lines? There were so many, it is hard to choose. I might have to listen more than once.
