I’m of course referring to the White House Correspondent’s Dinner. Once the media and the President were all done sucking each others butts, Barry had this to say:
During Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, President Obama told the media they have a “responsibility to dig, and to question,” and “It has been an honor and a privilege to work side-by-side with you to strengthen our democracy.”
Yeah, the last 16 years have been just fabulous to the Republic. But in a night filled with laughs, Barry got the biggest one at the end of his speech:
Obama told the press, “[I]t’s not enough just to give people a megaphone, and that’s why your power and your responsibility to dig, and to question, and to counter distortions and untruths is more important than ever. Taking a stand on behalf of what is true does not require you shedding your objectivity. In fact, it is the essence of good journalism.”
I can only assume the room literally exploded as everyone in attendance literally shit themselves violently in laughter.
