President Obama began his remarks at tonight’s White House Correspondents Dinner around 10:20pmET. C-SPAN, MSNBC, and CNN carried live coverage.
“I am a little jet-lagged for my trip to Malaysia. The lengths we have to go to to get CNN coverage these days. I think they are still searching for their tables.”
“MSNBC is here. They are a little overwhelmed. They have never seen an audience this big before.”
“Look, everyone is trying to keep up with this incredibly fast-changing media landscape. For example, I got a lot of grief on cable news for promoting Obamacare to young people on ‘Between two Ferns.’ To be fair, I am not the first person on television between two potted plants.” (Shows image above of the “Fox & Friends” anchors)
“Let’s face it, Fox, you’ll miss me when I’m gone. It will be harder to convince the American people that Hillary was born in Kenya.”
Later, “Community” star and “The Soup” host Joel McHale, the entertainment for the night, got in a few one-liners about cable news as well.
