Old folks say “Many a truth is told in jest” and “Behind every joke is a kernel of truth.” When President Obama took the podium during the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner on saturday, he told the truth cloaked in witty one-liners.
Obama, who is under fire for ignoring Russia’s warnings about the Boston bombers, said “I’m not the strapping young Muslim Socialist that I used to be.”
Earlier this month the president was forced to apologize for saying Kamala Harris was the best looking Attorney General. He made a joke about that too. “As you can imagine, I got in trouble when I got back home. Who knew Eric Holder was so sensitive?”
The barbs came fast and furious: “I’ve got 99 problems and now Jay Z is one,” cracked Obama about his homie who is traveling in Europe with Beyonce. Obama also cracked jokes about the Republican party, Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. Michele Bachmann.
