Seth Meyers Zings Aggregators and Huffington Post at White House Correspondents’ Dinner

Donald Trump wasn’t the only one roasted at Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner. Seth Meyers, the SNL comedian who by all accounts nailed his remarks, also took a shot at aggregators like the Huffington Post.

Quipped Meyers:

“The New York Times [after] party used to be free, but tonight, apparently there’s a cover. So, like everyone else, I’ll probably just go to the Huffington Post party. And the Huffington Post party is asking people to go to other parties first and just steal food and drinks and bring it from there.”

The crowd goes wild at this, and even President Obama cracks up.

For those of you who haven’t checked Meyers’ speech, the video is after the jump. The joke about the Huffington Post is around the five minute mark.
