Watch Obama Perfectly Nail a Key and Peele Skit at the White House Correspondents' Dinner

Apr 25, 2015

The highlight of President Obama's speech at the White House Correspondents' Dinner on Saturday was when Keegan-Michael Key of Comedy Central's Key & Peele made a surprise appearance as Luther, the President's anger translator.

Playing a character he originated on the sketch comedy show, Key "translated" Obama's mild-mannered speech into an angry rant, warning the audience to "hold on to your lily-white butts."

At one point, when Obama was discussing Hillary Clinton's 2016 candidacy, Key interjected, "Khaleesi is coming to Westeros."

But by the time he started talking about climate change, Obama let himself get riled up. That was Luther's cue: "With all due respect sir, you don’t need an anger translator, you need counseling.”

On his way out, he shared a moment with Michelle Obama, during which they seemed to agree the President was "crazy."
