Okay, let me just get this out of the way:
Another Correspondent’s Dinner, another “off-the-shoulder perfection” for Lady M. Enough said.
How do I know why she always looks like such a hot mess at the Correspondents’ Dinner? I guess she’s always had a thing for writers.
For his part of the party, Big Guy hired the best comedy writers in the country and all he got in return was polite laughter. Not exactly a great return on investment; butt then, that can be said about everything else America has “invested in” the past five and a half years too.
Here’s what People reported as his best jokes:
On the opposing side: "These days, House Republicans give John Boehner a harder time than they give me. Which means orange really is the new black." (Someone's been binge-watching!)
On how the shaky Obamacare web signup was just like Frozen: "On the plus side, they did turn the launch of HealthCare.gov into one of the year's biggest movies."
On CNN's incessant coverage of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight: "I am happy to be here even though I am a little jet-lagged from my trip to Malaysia. The lengths we have to go to to get CNN coverage these days ... I think they're still searching for their table."
On FOX News: "Let's face it, FOX, you'll miss me when I'm gone. It will be harder to convince the American people that Hillary [Clinton] was born in Kenya."
On Democrats distancing themselves: "I did notice the other day that Sasha needed a speaker at career day, and she invited Bill Clinton."
On gridlock in congress: "What'd we do to piss off Chris Christie so bad?"
That last one: Not really very presidential. I wonder what Chris Christie did to piss off the President so bad?
Butt actually the line that drew the biggest laugh was this:
“In 2008 my slogan was Yes We Can. In 2013 it was Control-Alt-Delete”
They say all good humor is based in truth. How true.
So relax, if you missed the dinner and a movie on Cspan I managed to get a hold of the keynote video presentation. It was the evening’s high point. Here’s a little tease – a glimpse into late night in the Big White kitchen:
It’s definitely must see teevee: excellent acting by Joey B, MO, Nancy P and John Boehner. You might say they’re naturals.
And BTW, somebody posted this on their Twitter feed and it’s gone viral:
I just want to go on record saying this did NOT take place at the MOTUS Twilight Nocturne Lounge.
That’s all I’ve got. Up way too late last night.
