I know that behind every President is a slew of writers working their asses off with little appreciation from the public. That being said, those writers and that POTUS have to be able to agree on some things. Such as, where the line is. And how many times to cross it in the name of comedy.
The American people, deserve that. Everyone lambasts everyone, beyond the pale and then beyond that.
One of my favorite things to watch in recent years has been the White House Correspondent dinner. There’s the Gossip ( Who was invited? THEM???!!!), the clothes ( And THEY wore WHAT??!! to a White House hosted Dinner?!!!) and then there are the jokes. The zingers, the hurls, dips and rib-ticklers of the esteemed guest list. Or this year, the Secret Service. And North Korea ( oooooh take that Jong-Un. Beep Beep, Derrivery of de Punchrine).
Here’s the opener, filled with bleeps, buzzes, fuzzes and well . . . good stuff. Kimmel lays it on pretty thick.
I would say more, but Kimmel says it all. After Kimmel, there is some Barack with quite a few good zingers. Yes, yes he went there.
And here is the POTUS.
If you didn’t hear, Greta Van Susteren of FOX news ( and receiver of much plastic surgery) invited, as her guest, Lindsie Lohan. Yup. To show how with it she is.
