President Barack Obama grabbed center attention [yet again] at the 2013 White House correspondent dinner. The president kicked of the dinner with a very own comedic introduction. Adding fire to the fuel, the president requested a rap song to be featured on the introduction of his speech. The president took to the podium, as DJ Khaled’s “All I Do Is Win” rap song played in the background.
“Rush Limbaugh warned you about this – Second Term Baby! said the president. “Were changing things around here a little bit. [laughs] Actually, my advisors were a little worried about the “new” rap entrance music. They are little more traditional! They suggested that I should start with some jokes of myself at my expense.
Obama touched on all of the “hush topics” in the media [ false reporting by CNN, and Fox news, the issue of his birthright, his love of rap music and the ongoing political discourse of it all] surrounding his presidential election.
When addressing his second term, Barack says that although he’s matured politically – he still makes mistakes.
I get it. These days I look in the mirror and I have to admit – I’m not the strapping young muslim socialist that I used to be. Time passes – you get a little gray yet [even at this time] I make mistakes.
“Like during the easter roll… I hang out with the kids.“I go out onto the basketball court. I took 22 shots and made two of them. That’s right. Two hits and 22 misses. The executives over at NBC asked “What’s your secret? “
Obama said that he’s learned to take on a new look on things thanks to his wife [who caused a national attention for getting “bangs” added to her hairdo]. Obama teased the subject a little sporting the “signature bangs” in recent photos such as the photo-shopped one seen below.
On the subject of Jay-Z’s visit to Cuba, Obama says:
” This whole controversy about Jay-Z going to Cuba. It’s unbelievable. I got 99 problems and now Jay-Z’s one. Then Obama he points to one of his advisors [Bill] and says : that’s a rap reference! ” – leaving the audience in laughter.
Watch the full speech as Obama addresses his rift with CNN and Fox news, his infamous Satan picture, and more while concluding his speech with an important message regarding the “Boston Bombings” and the recent “flood damage” in West Texas, and how important it is for each and everyone of us to engage in public service and strive for the betterment of the people.
