President Obama’s speech at the White House Corespondent’s Association Dinner on April 28, 2012 took digs at everyone,style. And nothing was sacred!
The POTUS (President of the United States) was in rare form as he took pot shots at his having to deal with the likes of(in particular that he was the opening act for him!), Kim Kardashian and the cast of Glee, alluding to their insignificance…
After referencing that his administration finally put paid to “one of the most notorious individuals” out there, they put up a picture of, who of course headed the Birther Movement that questions Obama’s American birth.
Obama then introduced himself saying “Ladies and gentlemen, my name is ‘Barack Obama’ and my mother was born in Kansas, my father was born in Kenya and I, of course, was born in Hawaii.” He then gives a huge wink with his right eye, upon which the crowd totally lost it!
The president was sure to make reference of his hair graying tremendously since he took office in 2009, implying that in another four years he would end up looking like (as haggard as)with his white hair.
People loved that he joked that after three years of office, Hilary Clinton couldn’t stop “drunk-texting” him from Cartegena!
The comment from Obama about his eating dog in Indonesia was played up to great effect, asking the question in reference to, “what’s the difference between a Hockey Mom and a Pitbull? A Pitbull is delicious!…A little soy sauce…”
sat there with her jaw dropped in disbelief as though she’d never heard any of the speech before – not even being practiced by her husband – and where was all this wicked humor coming from?
The gag “WOOFPAC” advert about “European style Dog Socialism” was absolutely hilarious! And his saying “my step father always told me, ‘it’s a boy eat dog world out there’” was the cherry on top!
A comparison was made between the movie “The Hunger Games” and campaigning for the presidency, where contestants brutalize each other until there is only one contender standing…
Obama also made jokes about what he will achieve in his second term, in particular in his first term he was known for repealing the policy known as “don’t ask, don’t tell” but in his second term he will replace it with a policy known as “it’s raining men!”
He ended on a serious note that he supported all types of “journalists” out there from bloggers to professional mainstream media news correspondents but best of all, that he had a lot more material he would’ve liked to present in his speech but he had to get the Secret Service (referencing the recent “call-girl” episode overseas during his watch) home in time for their new curfew!
A well rendered comedic speech by Barack Obama! Well done, Barack Obama…
