Obama Burns Jay Leno At White House Correspondents’ Dinner
Was anyone left in Hollywood last night? Looks like the night of the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, held in Washington, D.C, was good night for Alexis Neiers to go out and steal shit.
Tons of stars came to dine at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue last night for the annual dinner which raises money for the associations scholarships. Bill Maher probably put it best when he said “It’s sort of like Oscar night. It’s great to mingle with America’s real intellectual heavyweights. I saw the Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber, Jessica Simpson, Ryan Seacrest – I can’t wait to talk politics.”
The little Bieb, who looks like he’s going to his first dance, seemed to get most of the attention, while the ladies showed up in all shades and lengths of formal gowns.
It looks like Jay Leno sat by First Lady Michelle Obama, in position by the podium for his speech later on. No Conan O’Brien in sight, but President Barak Obama was quick to make the joke.
“I am glad that the only person’s whose ratings fell more than mine last year is here tonight. Great to see you, Jay,” the president quipped. “I’m also glad that I’m speaking first because we’ve all seen what happens when somebody takes the timeslot after Leno’s.” Apparently his speech last night got more laughs than Jay’s. Lucky for Jay Obama’s a little too busy to get NBC thinking about another replacement.
