The 2014 White House Correspondents’ Dinner was filled with entertainment and jokes. President Obama made jokes of fellow politicians, himself, athletes and some news networks. He had Joel McHale, Jamie Anderson, Richard Sherman and many more guests at the dinner.
The introduction of the speech was for fun and games, pure jokes about the year 2013 and how far things got done with President Barrack Obama during that year and 2014. Some of the jokes that were made, were meant to make a point of how things have been going with the White House.
Obama pointed out what has been getting done despite the decisions and opposing views that the Republican party has had within the past few years since Obama has been in office. Many of the statements that Obama made a joke out of were actually true.
The President mentioned that more than 8 million people enrolled in Obamacare during the first enrollment of 2014. Obama and Ted Cruz did sign a bill, Republicans hired consultants to teach them how to speak to women in order to persuade them into their vote.
There was one thing that was incorrect that President Obama did mention and that was that the Los Angeles Clippers were owned by Oprah after Donald Sterling was forced to give the team up after some scandalous racial issues. The Clippers are actually now owned by ex-CEO of Microsoft, Steve Ballmer.
Towards the end of Obama’s speech, he got serious and got to the point of as to why everyone was at the dinner, and it was to reward those who have done so much to cover world issues and for doing an excellent job as a journalists. The Presidents also mentioned a Scholarship that was in honer of Harry’s name and thanked everyone for their work and those who attended the dinner.
