Based on a recent report published by Reuters, President Barack Obama made fun of his political rival, Mitt Romney during the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner on Saturday night. Although he initially stated that he doesn’t want to talk about his Republican candidates, Obama eventually concentrated all his attention towards Governor Mitt Romney.
President Barack Obama went on stage one more time to prove everyone that he is very talented when it comes to stand-up comedy, not just politics. Although his jokes were just as amusing as always, Obama did seem a little bit tense making very strong remarks towards his political opponents and towards conspiracy theory-lovers.
Great part of his declaration was centered on Mitt Romney and his political campaign, even though he tried to take everyone in the audience by surprise telling them that he won’t discuss politics. Barack Obama even suggested that he has a lot in common with Romney because they both love their wives and “and polls show, to an alarmingly insulting extent, the American people agree”.
The funniest moment was when Obama broadcast a video telling people that they should vote Mitt Romney because he can take better care of dogs in America. It all started in 1983 when Romney went on a family vacation and tied the dog carrier on the roof of his car to give him more space. A comparison followed between Romney’s dog and the dog of the presidential family which might be ‘tortured’ by Obama to travel and live in luxury. The conclusion was that Americans should vote for Romney because dogs wouldn’t stand 4 more years with Obama. For them is 28 years.
There have been, however, several moments during which the President proved that he also possesses self-effacing humor. He showed pictures of himself before and after these four governing years telling people that if he wins the elections one more time he will probably look like Denzel Washington. Despite these humorous moments, Obama ended his speech on a serious note, commemorating the two journalists who lost their lives while reporting in Syria, Anthony Shadid and Marie Colvin.
