Let's talk about the White House Correspondents dinner - the only event on the political character where you get to laugh at the speeches completely guilt-free. The night included bits and improv by sharp and hilarious comedians like Cecily Strong, Keegan-Michael Key and even Laverne Cox, but also gave the president a chance to do what he does best - be as funny and charming as he wants. 

Barack Obama
One thing is certain - the president knows how to poke fun at himself.

According to his speech,  Obama is bringing a new attitude to the final quarter of his presidency: "Bucket!"

"After the midterm elections, my advisers asked me, 'Mr. President, do you have a bucket list?'" he told those attending the annual dinner of the White House Correspondents' Association.

"And I said, well, I have something that rhymes with bucket list ..."

"Take executive action on immigration? Bucket!"

As for Strong's mini-roast, everyone was on her radar - Obama (while his approval rating was at 48% after six years in office, his gray hair had taken over "85%" of his head,) Hilary Clinton ("Hillary Clinton said that she used her private email because she didn't want to use more than two devices. Now if that sounds familiar, it's because it's also one of the rules of the sex contract of 'Fifty Shades of Grey,'"), Fox and CNN, even BuzzFeed wasn't off the hook - 17 reasons why BuzzFeed shouldn't be there? Bit harsh, Ms Strong. 

The correspondents' association dinner is the night the president does stand-up comedy to raise money for scholarships for young journalists - and provides tongue-in-cheek payback for those already on the job as well as political opponents.

The dinner helps fund scholarships and awards that recognise journalists.
