Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Joe Biden: White House Correspondents’ Dinner 2014
Published on May 3, 2014
Watch what happens when Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Vice President Joe Biden do not go to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
President Barack Obama is joining journalists, government officials, politicians and media personalities at the annual dinner of the White House Correspondents’ Association.
The featured entertainer, Joel McHale, star of the NBC series “Community,” quickly delivered a quip about Chris Christie’s fallen star, promising many more jokes about the New Jersey governor, who is in attendance.
The early part of the comedian’s speech included references to the entertainment industry, such as the Kardashians, but he then turned his attention to politics, including a comment about paying Hillary Rodham Clinton less if she becomes president, and the news media.
Earlier, Obama cracked jokes about Russian President Vladimir Putin and the continued resistance by many politicians to his signature health care reform.
The evening of humor and celebrity gazing has become an annual tradition in the nation’s capital.
First lady Michelle Obama is with the president at the black-tie event at the Washington Hilton Hotel.
Al Sharpton, Uber founder Travis Kalanick, departing Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz, and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright are some of the VIPs at the dinner.
As part of a joke about the troubled rollout of HealthCare.gov, Sebelius came to the podium to “fix” a video address the president had recorded to end his speech for the night.
