Obama Brings His Humor to WH Correspondents’ Dinner (FULL VIDEO)

The famed Nerd Prom came to Washington, D.C. this past weekend!
Hosted by TV’s Conan O’Brien, the White House Correspondents’ Dinner was a big hit for the crowd of celebrities and political media stars who gathered. Clips of the dinner have been circulating on the news and in social media.
As with every year, President Obama gave us a little over 20 minutes of prepared stand-up comedy. I’ve said this before that it’s quite “interesting” to see the president in a comedic space. He’s funny, but not funny all at the same time. It’s his lack of comedic timing that’s probably the most hilarious.
This year we got jokes about Jay-Z and Cuba, CNN, the late-night talk show wars, the Bush Library, and even a potential Obama movie … just to name a few. He even unveiled his plans to change up his hair game with bangs in the second term. LOL! He closed on a serious note, referencing recent events Boston and Texas, as well as the flooding in the Midwest.
