I didn’t watch the White House Correspondent’s Association dinner last night. It’s funny when we have a Republican President, because you know all the journalists in the room hate him. But with a Democrat? Especially one as loved and adored by the press as Obama?
You’re likely to go into a sugar coma from watching.
But Obama did crack one funny joke:
When President Obama made his debut as the nation’s Stand-Up-in-Chief last night — the star attraction at the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner — no one in his administration was safe from his one-liners. …
The routine brought mostly guffaws from the 2,500 journalists, politicians and celebrities jammed into the Washington Hilton ballroom for the press corps’ annual celebration of itself. The president acknowledged perceptions that he’s a media darling: “Most of you covered me; all of you voted for me. Apologies to the Fox table.”
It’s funny because it’s true.
Nice at they’re at least being honest about it.
