Cecily Strong hosted the White House Correspondent’s Dinner last night, and while she didn’t leave quite the impression of a Stephen Colbert, she did managed to hold her own. I’m not going to break down all the best jokes, because they’re much better coming out of the mouth of Strong than in print. Plus, it’s Sunday morning, and you’re still in your pajamas so do what I did and enjoy your coffee while watching it on your iPhone (do skip the Aaron Schock portion around the nine minute mark because it doesn’t land).

She really hits her stride around the 14:50 mark, when she asks the media to swear not to comment on Hillary Clinton’s fashion choices during the election season because “that’s not journalism.”
