President Barack Obama is savage! When he addressed the audience at his final White House Correspondents’ dinner on Saturday night (April 30), he concluded his speech with his best Kobe Bryant impression.
“I just have two more words to say: Obama out,” the President said, before raising the mic, dropping it and mouthing the words, “Thank you”.
Obama also cracked plenty of jokes to a ballroom filled with journalists, politicians, and celebrities at his last address at the event as president. “If this material works well, I’m going to use it at Goldman Sachs next year,” he said. “Earn me some serious Tubmans.”
Elsewhere, Obama acknowledged that his years in the White house has taken its toll, but did say his approval ratings are currently up. “I’m gray, grizzled … counting down the days to my death panel,” he said, before talking rating: “The last time I was this high. I was trying to decide on my major.”
And later, Obama talked about the presidential race, offering a subliminal prediction. “Next year at this time someone else will be standing here in this very spot, and it’s anyone’s guess who she will be.”
