Washington, Apr 30(ANI): President Barack Obama's humorous speech targeted this year's primaries, the 2008 primaries, the General Services Administration scandal, the Secret Service and real estate mogul Donald Trump at the White House Correspondents Dinner.
Obama walked off stage just before he took the podium with an alleged "hot mic," making fun of getting caught last month on an open microphone with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.
He also recalled last year's dinner, which took place as NavySeals were dispatched to capture and kill Osama bin Laden.
"Last year at this time, this very weekend, we finally delivered justice to one of the world's most notorious individuals," Obama said.
Obama also took a shot at the Republican congressional leadership, whom he thanked "for taking time from their exhausting schedule of not passing any laws" to attend the dinner.
He also took a few jabs at his political opponents, including Republicans, who are White House contenders, Fox News reports.
"Take Mitt Romney, he and I actually have a lot in common. We both think of our wives as our better halves, and polls show to an alarmingly insulting extent, the American people agree. We both also have degrees from Harvard. I have one, and he has two. What a snob," Obama said.
But he also spoke about serious themes, remembering two journalists, The New York Times' Anthony Shadid and Marie Colvin of the Sunday Times of London who died, while covering the uprising in Syria.
Among the crowd who attended the event were former Secretary of State Colin Powell, the cast of the hit TV show "Modern Family," actress Lindsey Lohan, Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., actor George Clooney and director Steven Spielberg. (ANI)
