Barack treats Tinseltown to his presidential punch lines

What do Kim Kardashian, Hillary Clinton and the US Secret Service all have in common   they were all targets of Barack Obama's humour at a White House gala.



Taking to the podium at the annual Correspondents' Dinner in Washington, POTUS  to give him his presidential acronym  was on cracking form.

In a skit recorded recorded backstage, he was heard asking: "What am I doing here? I'm opening for (presenter) Jimmy Kimmel and telling knock-knock jokes to Kim Kardashian. Why is she famous anyway?".



Then, appearing before the star-studded audience, Barack smiled cheekily and said: "Thank you all for taking a break in your schedule of not passing any laws to be here tonight."

The guests – including George Clooney, Kim Kardashian and Eva Longoria – were shaking with laughter at his comedy routine.

And his wife Michelle – dazzling in a multi coloured print gown from Naeem Khan – also sat giggling from a nearby table.

  • On Kim Kardashian: " Why is she famous anyway?"
    On Hilary Clinton: "Four years ago, I was locked in a brutal primary battle with Hilary Clinton. Four years later, she won't stop drunk texting me from Cartagena" 
  • On First Dog Bo: "America's dogs can't afford four more years of Obama, that's 28 years for dogs"
