Last night, Washington partied.
In continuing with an almost one-hundred year old tradition, the White House Correspondents’ Dinner brought out big names and big speeches in D.C. last night.
Conan O’Brien was the featured speaker, but the funny man was almost “out funnied” by the Commander in Chief himself, President Obama.
Here are the top five moments.
1. Obama Shows Off New Entrance Music
Obama forewent the usual presidential melody and decided on DJ Khaled’s All I Do Is Win.
2. Obama Calls Himself a ‘Strapping Young, Muslim Socialist’ & Unveils a New Haircut
Obama hysterically called it like it is, showing his chops for comedic timing and how he doesn’t take himself too seriously. Watch his speech below and prepare for some laughs.
3. Spielberg Shows Documentary Trailer for Obama Film Parody
Steven Spielberg joined the fun by partaking in a parody film documentary entitled Obama. Guess who stars as the title role?
4. Conan Kills It
Conan came on stage and, in usual Conan candor, brought the funny alongside some groaners and some uncomfortable potshots. Watch the whole thirty minute segment below.
5. Conan References the Boston Bombings
Check out the tweet below quoting Conan’s comment last night on the Boston Bombings.
Conan on Boston: “If you’re going to pick on a city, don’t choose one where 9 out of 10 people are related to a cop.” #WHCD

Did anyone invite Romney to WHCA dinner? Losing Prez candidates should get an automatic invite, whether they choose to accept or not.
