President Obama Pokes Fun at Just About Everyone at WH Correspondents' Dinner

Posted on May 5, 2014

The White House Correspondents' Dinner was held last night with Joel McHale as the headline speaker. As is tradition, the president gave a humorous speech to the crowd of journalists, politicians and celebrities. Before he began his speech he had them bring out two ferns, one on each side of the podium in a nod to his infamous interview with Zach Galifianakis on Between Two Ferns, noting "hey, it worked before." The president jabbed pretty much everyone in his speech. He had a wide range of targets, but first poked fun at the botched launch of Healthcare.gov: "My campaign slogan was Yes we Can, but in 2013 it became Control Alt Delete."

Other targets included: Former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius Sebelius came out at the end to help the president with some technical troubles. All in all, he was certainly funnier than McHale. Take a look:
