Saturday was a great day for rich white people, with the Kentucky Derby in the afternoon and the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in the evening.
Joel McHale was tabbed as the emcee for Saturday night’s dinner and he brought the funny as expected.
Here is the entirety of McHale’s talk. WARNING: POLITICAL HUMOR AHEAD.
If you just want the summary, Politico made a list of McHale’s best lines.
Some of these are way too politically charged for an entertainment blog that wants to stay out of getting people riled up. Woah, way to burn Paul Ryan there Joel McHale.
The host did deliver some non-partisan zingers including this crack about CNN.
Have you watched the news? Not CNN, I mean the real news.
If there’s one thing all of America can agree on, regardless of political affiliation, it’s that CNN sucks.
And Nancy Grace is probably Satan.
Don’t hate on me, I said “probably.” I can’t prove that Nancy Grace is Satan. Yet. But give me a few more months to get my data together. I could have some shocking revelations to share.
McHale also got in a jab at Joe Biden, who is okay to make fun of because people on both sides don’t like him.
It’s crazy to think that Joe Biden is only one heartbeat away from no one taking him seriously as president.
That’s funny McHale. But seriously, even if something did happen to Obama, no way does Biden get to be president. How fast can you pass a Constitutional amendment changing the order of succession?
I don’t know. But if Obama went down, we’d find out.
