President Obama at the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, D.C. April 27, 2013.
President Obama last night joined Conan O’Brien onstage at the Washington Hilton for the annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, and gave his fifth address to the organization of journalists who cover the White House, and the President himself. In his remarks, the President poked at himself, as well as some of the news organizations and politicians in the room. He also showed a spoof promo for Steven Spielberg’s followup to “LIncoln,” a biopic called “Obama.”
But while everyone had a good laugh during the speech, President Obama closed his speech on a more serious note, reminding the audience of the important role the media plays in American society, especially during times of crisis like the Boston Marathon bombings and the explosion that killed so many first responders in West, Texas.
