President Obama gets great scores for his White House Correspondent’s Dinner speech last night. With two years left on his term, and no re-election to fight, he took plenty of shots at Republicans and the press, with some particularly good jokes at both Fox News and CNN’s expense, although he honestly seemed to direct the best jokes at himself. That is, with one exception: At the 9:40 mark Obama delivered the best joke of the night by using the perfect reference to Orange is the New Black to take down a Republican colleague.
I don’t want to say that Vice President completely stole his thunder with this fantastic pre-taped video with fictional Vice President Selena Meyer from Veep (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), but Biden may have stolen his thunder.
Basically, if you have 45 minutes this Sunday morning, you’d be hard pressed to find anything more entertaining than the two videos above and Joel McHale’s mean speech.
