WATCH!!! Obama Reveals his “Buck-et” List @ 2015 #WHCD
April 25, 2015 – President Barack Obama delivered his seventh speech to the White House Correspondents’ Association Saturday night. After a short montage parodying his interviews with BuzzFeed and YouTube stars, the president launched into his annual stand-up set. “Welcome to the fourth quarter of my presidency,” Obama said, adding that he feels more “loose and relaxed than ever” with less than two years left in office. The president said he doesn’t have a “bucket list,” but does have something that rhymes with that. “Take executive action on immigration? Bucket! ”
“Being president is never easy,” Obama said. “I still have to fix a broken immigration system, issue veto threats, negotiate with Iran, all while finding time to pray five times a day.”
On Dick Cheney’s assertion that Obama is the worst president of his lifetime, the president said that is “interesting, because I think Dick Cheney is the worst president of my lifetime.”
And there was the inevitable Hillary Clinton joke: “For many Americans, this is still a time of deep uncertainty. For example, I have one friend, just a few weeks ago, she was making millions of dollars a year and she is now living out of a van in Iowa.”
Obama welcomed the night’s host, Cecily Strong, who plays CNN’s Brooke Baldwin on Saturday Night Live. “Usually the only people impersonating journalists on CNN are journalists on CNN,” he said.
The current and potential 2016 Republican presidential field did not emerge unscathed, with jokes about Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, Rick Santorum, Donald Trump and more. Obama said he couldn’t wait to see who the Koch brothers pick.
And don’t forget about Hillary Clinton’s potential competition from the left, Sen. Bernie Sanders. “Some folks want to see a pot smoking socialist in the White House,” he said. “We could get a third Obama term after all!”
Finally, the president did the unthinkable, bringing out his anger translator Luther, AKA Keegan-Michael Key from Key & Peele, who took the “serious” part of Obama’s speech and let everyone know what he was really thinking. But by the end, Obama got angry all on his own, no translation needed.
