President Obama Takes Jabs At The Media at The White House Correspondents’ Dinner (AKA ‘Nerd Prom’)


The 100th Annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, a.k.a. the Nerd Prom, was held in D.C. on Saturday night. Celebrities mixed with journalists at the annual gala, which honors current and future members of the press corp. President Barack Obama took to the podium to poke fun at himself, and get in some digs at the media. CNN was a favorite target, not just for him, but for comedian Joel McHale, who served as the dinner’s main performer, as well. His best joke was probably “Republicans are giving Boehner a harder time than they give me, which means orange really is the new black.” You can check out his whole routine below.

Another highlight of the dinner was the video that featured Julia Louis-Dreyfus as her ‘Veep‘ character Selina Meyer having some fun around the Capitol with actual Vice President Joe Biden. The two get tatted up with Nancy Pelosi and eat ice cream with Michelle Obama, who looked gorgeous in Marchesa by the way. I’d love to ride around D.C. with Uncle Joe in a yellow Corvette, I mean, who wouldn’t?

We should have some juicy strories tomorrow when ALLLLL the tea is spilled. Stay tuned, y’all. This is gonna be GOOD.
