Obama Brings Down The House [VIDEO]

President Barack Obama killed with his performance at the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday, outshining the host, comedian Jimmy Kimmel.

The National Memo picked its five favorite one-liners by the president at the star-studded gala that brings celebrities, journalists, and politicians together to poke fun at each other each year in Washington. Rather than steering clear of paranoid right-wing rumors, the president took them are on directly, and seemed to show the same cool and poise that made him so attractive to voters four years ago.

Now, without further delay, the president’s five best one-liners:

-“Four years ago, I was locked in a brutal primary battle with Hillary Clinton. Four years later she won’t stop drunk-texting me from Cartegana.”

-On Mitt Romney: “We both have degrees from Harvard. I have one, he has two. What a snob.”

-“Last year at this time, this very weekend, we finally delivered justice to one of the world’s most notorious individuals,” [Photo of Donald Trump is displayed]

-“What is the difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull? A pitbull is delicious.”

-“Here we are in this vast magnificent Hilton ballroom, what Mitt Romney would call a fixer upper.”

Among the crimes charged against McGonigal in two lengthy federal indictments is a secret financial relationship with Oleg Deripaska — a Russian oligarch close to dictator Vladimir Putin and associated with Paul Manafort, Trump's campaign manager, himself convicted of crimes and pardoned.

During his FBI career, McGonigal oversaw investigations of Deripaska and other oligarchs suspected of various crimes, including espionage. Now the exposure of his illegal connection with Deripaska may provide fresh insights into Trump's tainted victory.
