It was a fun filled day at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner where President Obama lighted up the room as he pokes jokes at himself, JayZ, the CNN, Taylor Swift, MSNBC, Michelle Obama, Conan O’Brien, Rush Limbaugh, the History Channel, Fox and much more.
The funniest and remarkable one among them was the, “I’ve got 99 problems and now Jay-Z is one.” That was a phrase from Jay-z’s 2004 song titled, “99 Problems.”
Obama made the Jay-Z 99 problems joke while talking about Jay-Z and Beyonce’s wedding anniversary holiday in Cuba. The couple came under scrutiny for holidaying in Cuba because of the US economic embargo on the country. During the fury, a new track titled “Open Letter,” was released and it insinuated Jay-Z had spoken to Obama about their trip to Cuba.
Obama’s answer to the track was “saying, “I wasn’t familiar that they were taking the trip. You know, this is not something the White House was involved with. We’ve got better things to do.”
Hate him or love him, President Barack Obama is an extremely funny guy who is great with words. He also made fun of the former president, George Bush when he talked about “The Bush Library” and his plans to build another one by the side and name it “The Blame The Bush Library.”
Obama made a lot of punch lines during the speech and below are some of the most remarkable ones were;
No Bama Island
Why didn’t you get a drink with Mitt
It’s like we are trapped in a Taylor Swift album
