Cecily Strong from Saturday Night Live hosts this year
President Obama was joined on Saturday night by a cadre of celebrities and journalists for the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner. It’s the 101st year of the dinner, and the President was sure to crack some wise ones. Cecily Strong of Saturday Night Live was hosting the evening.
It’s a night for the President to make fun of his staunchest rivals, and take some heat himself from the host. Last year, he made fun of House Speaker John Boehner’s tan, the gridlock in Congress and Fox News.
“The Koch brothers bought a table here this evening but they used a shadowy right-wing organization as a front. Good evening, Fox News,” Obama joked last year.
This year, expect anything from the Republican presidential candidates to the media to be fair game for friendly mockery.
