Comedian Jimmy Kimmel Roasts Barack Obama at 2012 White House Correspondents’ Dinner (Video)

 

What makes humor funny … there has to be partial truth in what you are joking about … Last night Jimmy Kimmel was really funny …

Last night Jimmy Kimmel hosted the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington DC. And what a job he did, KUDOS!!!  Jimmy Kimmel roasted President Barack Obama and perfectly went after the news stories of the day with whit and humor. It was not piggish or vulgar … it was actually quite funny, for the most part. However, you will notice when listening to Kimmel’s roasts, the ones that are more funny than others are the ones that have a bit of truth to them, not just making a partisan hit joke. Of course as stated at Powerline, those mean spirited jabs and barbs were reserved for Republicans. What else would one expect?

One of Kimmel’s Obama roasts that started off the evening was as follows: “Mr. President, remember when the country rallied around you in hopes of a better tomorrow? That was hilarious. That was your best one yet …”

The Gateway Pundit has a paeruial transcript of some of Kimmel’s more funny moments roasting Barack Obama.

“Mr. President, remember when the country rallied around you in hopes of a better tomorrow? That was hilarious. That was your best one yet… There’s a term for guys like Obama. Probably not two terms. Even some of your fellow democrats think you’re a pushover Mr. President. Thy would like to see you stick to your guns. And if you don’t have any guns they would like for you to ask Eric Holder to get some… You know the real reason people thought you were from Kenya had nothing to do with your birth certificate. It’s because you lost so much weight we thought you were the guy who won the Boston Marathon. This is how you know our country is in bad shape, our president is starving.”

UPDATE I: It’s an Obama eat Dog World.

      Congratulations to. kümmel…..he did a great job! I don’t care for the President but he was pretty good too. It,s nice to see all political parties in the same room playing nice with each other.

      I thought Kimmel was funny, and with a sharp edged sword. You probably could have heard some butts puckering on most of his jokes, the butts of the intended targets. Obama looked like a cat on a hot tin roof during Kimmel’s monologue.

      I thought Obama was pretty good but when Jimmy said, “there’s a term for guys like Obama….one term not two.” Obama had an evil look on his face.

      I liked the joke about the ears and “That’s hilarious” on the Hope and Change comment—only thing is- 4 years in and no one is laughing.

      What does SM and other Monkeys think about this:

      I always liked Condy. The new Smithsonian Channel had a program on last night about the day of 9/11, GWB & Laura’s days and nights and many of those involved in crucial decisions and behind the scenes interviews and eyewitness accounts.

      11 years later, and to this day- I don’t believe America ever gave GWB enough credit for how he handled our Country being attacked. I will forever be grateful to him for having a set, a heart, and the courage needed to lead us through very troubling times.

      Don’t care what anyone says about him, I do miss Dubya and First Lady Laura.

      Romney/Rice might be a very interesting ticket.

      [...] a sitting President trying to tell jokes about eating dogs? Seriously! It might be one thing for comedian Jimmy Kimmel to make a Fido joke about President Obama,  saying that Obama’s favorite restaurant is the  [...]
