President Barack Obama used his comic toast at the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner Saturday night to take pointed jabs at “birthers,” Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., among several others.
When the president takes the stage at the annual gala, self-deprecating humor is often the highlight, but as some commentators have pointed out, Obama has a tendency to target his enemies more than himself.
At the Washington Hilton Saturday night, Obama ribbed a long list of conservatives and Republicans, including House Speaker John Boehner, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, former Gov. Mike Huckabee, Governors Rick Perry and Chris Christie, TV personalities Sean Hannity and Pat Buchanan, the Koch brothers, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Bundy, Paul, birthers and, of course, all the folks at Fox News.
The president offered a pair of punch lines aimed at those who have questioned his birthplace, including, “While we’re talking sports, just last month a wonderful story – an American won the Boston Marathon for the first time in 30 years. … Which was inspiring and only fair since a Kenyan has been president for the last six. Had to even things out.”
