President Obama’s Anger Translator at White House Correspondent’s Dinner

President Obama’s Anger Translator at White House Correspondent’s Dinner

I often joke about tensions between me and
the press, but honestly, what they say doesn’t bother me. I understand we’ve got an adversarial
system. I’m a mellow sort of guy. And that’s why I invited Luther, my anger
translator, to join me here tonight. (Laughter and applause.) [LUTHER ENTERS] LUTHER: Hold on to your lily-white butts.
(Laughter.) THE PRESIDENT: In our fast-changing world,
traditions like the White House Correspondents’ Dinner are important. LUTHER: I mean, really, what is this dinner?
(Laughter.) And why am I required to come to it? (Laughter.) Jeb Bush, do you really
want to do this? (Laughter.) THE PRESIDENT: Because despite our differences,
we count on the press to shed light on the most important issues of the day. LUTHER: And we can count on Fox News to terrify
old white people with some nonsense! (Laughter.) “Sharia law is coming to Cleveland. Run
for the damn hills!” (Laughter.) Y’all, it’s ridiculous. (Laughter.) THE PRESIDENT: We won’t always see eye to
eye. LUTHER: Oh, and CNN, thank you so much for
the wall-to-wall Ebola coverage. For two whole weeks, we were one step away from the Walking
Dead. (Laughter.) And then you all got up and just moved on to the next day. That was
awesome. Oh, and by the way, just if you haven’t noticed, you don’t have Ebola! (Laughter.) THE PRESIDENT: But I still deeply appreciate
the work that you do. LUTHER: Ya’ll remember when I had that big,
old hole in the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico and then I plugged it? Remember that? Which
“Obama’s Katrina” was that one? Was that 19? Or was it 20? Because I can’t remember.
(Laughter.) THE PRESIDENT: Protecting our democracy is
more important than ever. For example, the Supreme Court ruled that the donor who gave
Ted Cruz 6 million dollars was just exercising free speech. LUTHER: Yeah, that’s the kind of speech
like this, “I just wasted six million dollars.” (Laughter and applause.) THE PRESIDENT: And it’s not just Republicans.
Hillary will have to raise huge sums of money, too. LUTHER: Oh, yes. She’s gonna get that money.
She’s gonna get all the money. Khaleesi is coming to Westeros. (Laughter and applause.)
So watch out! (Laughter.) THE PRESIDENT: The nonstop focus on billionaire
donors creates real problems for our democracy. LUTHER: And that’s why we’re running for
a third term! (Laughter.) THE PRESIDENT: No, we’re not. LUTHER: We’re not? THE PRESIDENT: No. LUTHER: Who the hell said that? (Laughter.) THE PRESIDENT: But we do need to stay focused
on some big challenges, like climate change. LUTHER: Hey, listen, ya’ll, if you haven’t
noticed, California is bone dry. (Laughter.) It looks like a trailer for the new “Mad
Max” movie up in there. (Laughter.) Ya’ll think that Bradley Cooper came here because
he wants to talk to Chuck Todd? (Laughter.) He needed a glass of water. Come on! (Laughter
and applause.) THE PRESIDENT: The science is clear. Nine
of the ten hottest years ever came in the last decade. LUTHER: Now, I’m not a scientist, but I
do know how to count to 10. (Laughter.) THE PRESIDENT: Rising seas, more violent storms. LUTHER: We’ve got mosquitos. Sweaty people
on the train, stinking it up. It’s just nasty. (Laughter.) THE PRESIDENT: I mean, look at what’s happening
right now. Every serious scientist says we need to act. The Pentagon says it’s a national
security risk. Miami floods on a sunny day, and instead of doing anything about it, we’ve
got elected officials throwing snowballs in the Senate! LUTHER: Okay, Mr. President. Okay, I think
they’ve got it, bro. THE PRESIDENT: It is crazy! What about our
kids? What kind of stupid, shortsighted, irresponsible bull— (Laughter and applause.) LUTHER: Wow! Hey! (Applause.) THE PRESIDENT: What?! LUTHER: All due respect, sir. You don’t
need an anger translator. (Laughter.) You need counseling. (Laughter.) So I’m out
of here, man. I ain’t trying to get into all this. (Laughter.) THE PRESIDENT: Go. (Applause.) LUTHER: He crazy. (Laughter and applause.) THE PRESIDENT: Luther, my anger translator,
ladies and gentlemen. (Applause.)

  1. Luther: And that's why we're running for A THIRD TERM!!!!!

    Obama: No, no we're not.

    Luther: Oh w-we're not?

    Obama: No.


  2. Its hard to say who is the biggest asswipe.
    No, its deffinately Obumer, K M.Key is a close 3rd. He wouldve been 2nd but big Mike has a bigger clackerbag and just jockied in knocking Key into 3rd place. Giving 1st and 2nd place to the biggest pair of tools to occupy the whitehouse, EVER!!

  3. I must be the only one that sees this and sees a president hire another black man to insult, shout, and start his charade with bigotry. Policies practices or whatever nothing will change the fact that 2008 the USA was 9 trillion dollars in debt after 8 years of his administration the USA was 19 trillion dollars in debt. To double the national deficit in 8 years is one thing but to do so with those numbers. If you look it up that is nearly as much as our nations entire national running deficit combined into one president. I don’t know how someone who bankrupts a nation is seen as the best president ever. And Hillary might have got all the money but she didn’t get the presidency. Not because she was a woman because she is horrible person.

  4. Lmfao killary. She will never be president to much blood on her hands. And ole kill Clinton is out keeping viagra in business taking flights to pedophile island. Ah yes the US government.

  6. That was hilarious..i cant understand how could Obama control his emotions and keep that straight face…dat was awesome

  7. Hey Americans! Am not from your country, and a lot of times, I didn't agree with Obama's party's ideology. But seriously, how and when exactly did guys go from this guy to the current lot of buffoons like Trump, Hillary and Bernie? Compared to your current options this guy comes across as a God.

  8. I will never stop finding this hilarious. But I wish the camera had panned at the end to show Luther whispering, “He’s crazy!” to Michelle as she nodded in agreement.
