President Barack Obama and late night talk show host Jay Leno traded jokes during the annual White House Correspondents Dinner.
Some of the excerpts are posted below, and the full video of Obama and Leno telling jokes is posted at the bottom.
Barack Obama: “Great to see you, Jay. I’m glad I’m speaking first. We’ve all seen what happens when someone takes the time slot after Leno.” (referring to Conan O’Brien)
Jay Leno:“When you were elected, little worried the comedy well at the White House had dried up so thank you for picking Joe Biden.”
Barack Obama: “Unfortunately John McCain couldn’t make it. Recently he claimed that he had never identified himself as a maverick. We all know what happens in Arizona when you don’t have ID. Adios amigos.”
Jay Leno:“All through the election they would ask questions like, is Obama black enough. It’s never the other way round. Is John Boehner orange enough?”
Barack Obama:“The following individuals shall be excluded from the indoor tanning tax within this bill– Snooki, J-Woww, The Situation, and House minority leader John Boehner.” (referring to the Jersey Shore cast)
Jay Leno: “He (Obama) loves to socialize – health care, car companies.”
Barack Obama: “Even though the mainstream press gives me a hard time, I hear that I’m still pretty big on Twitter, Facebook. Or as Sarah Palin calls it, “the socialized media.”
