President Barack Obama hosted the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday evening. Typically, the dinner is supposed to be fun and lighthearted, bringing together famous faces for a good time. So, of course, Obama had a few zingers up his sleeve to give his audience some laughs.
Obama isn’t shy to admit that he’s a hip-hop enthusiast. At last year’s dinner, he mentioned his first term consisting of singing Al Green, and his second term will be all Young Jeezy. Well, it wasn’t the Snowman, but Obama instead walked onstage to the entrance music of DJ Khaled’s “All I Do Is Win.”
“Rush Limbaugh warned you about this — second term, baby,” he joked.
His comical speech continued as he took aim at the likes of Jay-Z, Taylor Swift, Conan O’ Brien, CNN and more. Recently, Obama has been under fire for Jay-Z’s controversial trip to Cuba, in which he addressed it with a tongue-in-cheek comment.
“Some things are beyond my control. For example, this whole controversy about Jay-Z going to Cuba – it’s unbelievable. I’ve got 99 problems and now Jay-Z is one.”
Keep those hip-hop references coming.
