President Obama received good reviews for his speech at his first White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, where he poked fun at himself, the media, Vice President Biden and others.

"Tomorrow is Mother’s Day," the president said. "This is a tough holiday for Rahm [Emanuel]. He’s not used to saying the word ‘day’ after ‘mother.’"

“David Axelrod is here," the president continued. "We’ve been together a long time. I can still remember when I called Ax a few years ago and said, ‘You and I can do wonderful things together.” And he said to me the same thing that partners across America are saying to one another right now: ‘Let’s go to Iowa and make it official.’"

Comedian Wanda Sykes poked a little fun at the Obamas and others.
