Jimmy Kimmel Correspondent Dinner, Jimmy Kimmel didn’t hold back during his comedy routine at the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday night. The night’s featured entertainer made wisecracks about Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan, Keith Olbermann, Rush Limbaugh and even President Barack Obama.
“If you’re looking for the greatest threat to America right now, she’s right there,” Kimmel joked about Kardashian, one of the evening’s guests. “When you took office, the Kardashians had one reality show,” Kimmel said to Mr. Obama. “Now they have four. This is not a good trend.”
Kimmel also called out Lohan, who attended the annual dinner as a guest of Fox News. The late night TV host joked that heroic airplane pilot Chesley Sullenberger should be careful when giving Lohan a ride home. “Make sure you don’t run into a goose – a Grey Goose,” he said.
Uggie, the canine star of the Oscar-winning film “The Artist,” even had a mention. “Uggie is amazing,” Kimmel said. “He can roll over on command. He’s a Democrat.”
Kimmel even brought up the Secret Service prostitution scandal in Colombia, saying he told Secret Service members that for $800 he wouldn’t joke about them, “but they only offered $30.”
“If this had happened on President Clinton’s watch, you can damn well bet those Secret Service agents would have been disciplined with a very serious high five,” Kimmel said.
Kimmel later asked Obama, “You remember when the country rallied around you in hopes of a better tomorrow? That was hilarious.”
