Obama Gets Crowd LOL'ing

At the 99th annual White House Correspondents' dinner Saturday night, President Obama successfully sailed through the one night of the year where we don't just hope—but demand—he be funny. After paying tribute to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing, the president launched into a series of quips that left the entire room giggling. In one particularly funny bit—which got the majority of the 2,700 in attendance laughing—Obama picked fun at his relationship with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. "Some folks still don't think I spend enough time with Congress. 'Why don't you get a drink with Mitch McConnell?' they ask.' Why don't you get a drink with Mitch McConnell?" Obama said. Point taken.
