Late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel hosted the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner on Saturday night, eliciting laughs from the room packed with Hollywood starlets and Washington power players. The late-night television host lampooned everyone from the president and vice president to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and reality-TV star Kim Kardashian.
After President Obama’s opening, Kimmel took over the mic, turning the jokes back on the president, the Associated Press reports:
Kimmel, the night’s featured entertainer, asked Obama: “You remember when the country rallied around you in hopes of a better tomorrow? That was hilarious.”
“There’s a term for guys like President Obama,” Kimmel said with a pause. “Probably not two terms.”
Kimmel also mocked the president and first lady Michelle Obama for her work promoting healthy eating habits and his weight loss during his time in office:
“You’re very skinny. She doesn't let you eat. I felt weird about eating dessert; I left it untouched. I’ve never done that before.”
