10 best jokes from Obama’s 2013 White House Correspondents Dinner speech

At this point, speaking at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner is old hat for President Obama.

While many thought the tone of this year’s speeches would be more somber in light of the recent events in Boston and Texas, Obama still managed to pack quite a few laughs into his 20-minute speech.

Here are the ten best jokes from Obama’s speech at the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Dinner:

1. Jay-Z’s & Beyoncé’s recent Cuba trip.

“I’ve got 99 problems and now Jay-Z’s one of them…that’s another rap reference.”

2. Bangs!

“I get it…these days I look in the mirror and realize I’m not the strapping young socialist I used to be.”

3. The Other Bush Library

“On Thursday I went to the opening of the Bush Presidential Library in Dallas. It inspired me to get started on my own legacy, which will actually begin by building another ediface right to the Bush library. I’m also hard at work on plans for the Obama library, and some have suggested that we put it in my birthplace but I’d rather keep it in the United States.”

4. Obama as Satan

“The History Channel is not here…guess they were embarrassed about the whole ‘Obama is a devil‘ thing.”

5. BuzzFeed

“I remember when Buzzfeed was something I did in college around 2:00am.”

6. Obama and the media

Barack Obama

“My job is to be president. [The media's] job is to keep me humble. Frankly, I think I’m doing my job better.”

7. Obama goes skeet shooting

“You remember a few months ago my administration put out a photograph of me going skeet shooting at Camp David? Quite a number of people insisted that this had been photoshopped. Tonight I have something to confess – you were right, we were just trying to tone it down a little bit.”

8. Republican donor Sheldon Adelson

“You can buy an island and call it Nobama for that kind of money. Sheldon would have been better off offering me $100 million to drop out of the race. I probably wouldn’t have taken it, but I’d thought about it. Michelle would have taken it.”

9. Obama’s ‘charm offensive’

Barack Obama

“In fact, I’m taking my ‘charm offensive’ on the road: a Texas barbecue with Ted Cruz, Kentucky blue-grass concert with Rand Paul, and a book-burning with Michele Bachmann. My charm offensive has helped me learn some interesting things about what’s going on in Congress: it turns out absolutely nothing.”

10. Marco Rubio

Marco Rubio

 

“One senator who has reached across the aisle recently is Marco Rubio. But I don’t know about 2016 – I mean the guy hasn’t even finished a single term in the senate and he thinks he’s ready to be president.”

    None of this is funny. Why are we allowing this traitor idiot to stay in office. We know he is Indonesian, muslim, committed fraud to be on ballot in 08, sealed school records for applied as foreign student, and we don’t even know what his real name is and it goes on. He is a criminal. Do your job and get him out!

  2. AnonyTruth says:

    Wow Sda53 tin foil hat much? Everything you said is disinformation. You can look up the truth & think for yourself or continue to believe political extremists who count on you not looking it up so they can sell books & subscriptions to there shows. Everything you hear or read online is not true. These people are in it for the money & nothing else…

    1. sda53 says:

      Wow, commie I started researching him when he came out of nowhere and got on a ballot. This before they changed and cleaned records up to his favor. I have never been into politics till this muslim came on the scene. My concern is for the future not to be politically pleasing and in the popular crowd as you so want to be. Drink your kool aid and live in your dream world. Hopefully someone will stand up for your freedoms and rights so you will not have to do anything. If you are for obama and his muslim brotherhood administration then you too are a traitor to God and country. If they are in for the money what happens when he can’t borrow anymore in our name? This is about where our country is headed but obvious you do not want to worry your pretty little head with real life.

      1. Eric says:

        Well said SDA we got to get this Muslim traitor out of the White House NOW!!!!!

  3. Thomas A. Johnson says:

    Last Joke was Funny.
    You’re stuck with him so accept that or stress yourself silly.
    America choose a “hipster dufuss” over a “Christian Soldier” and America will have consequences for that. That is a fact and there is no way to “play it off”.
