Transcript for President Obama Offers Up Laughs at the White House Correspondents' Dinner
when you're, what is he, 27, 28? Now the Washington's biggest party of the year. The white house correspondents' dinner. Celebrities mixed and mingled with politicians and people like us, reporters. The president became comedian in chief, roasting his rivals and himself. Our Sara Haines was there. She has all the best moments. Good morning. Good morning. This year marks 100 years for the white house koerptss' dinner. Over the years, it's a coveted ticket for the who's who of Hollywood. Last night, I was right in the fray. When you said you would close the detention facility at guantanamo bay. That was a classic. That was hilarious. Reporter: It was anything but politically correct at the Ang yul mingling of the political and Hollywood elite. These days, the house republicans give John Boehner a harder time than they give me. Which means Orange really is the new black. Reporter: I was lucky enough to get in on the action, rubbing elbows with Hollywood stars, Washington big wigs, and Hollywood big wigs who play Washington stars. The confluence of the most amazing people. To watch the president be a standup comic, which he's incredibly good at. Reporter: The low down from "Modern family's" power couple. Reporter: If you had 2:00 with the president, what would you talk about? I even locked up my date for next year's nerd prom. Zwli don't want to call anybody a nerd. Reporter: We're all nerds. Would you go with me? Reporter: Are you asking? Yes. Reporter: I bumped into none other than Barbara Walters. My favorite was your reaction when you said, I'm sorry, why? What did you say? Silly bunny. Reporter: On the menu, biting sarcasm. Joel Mchale taking the helm. I haven't seen him this nervous since the president told him, look, just go out there and tell them the website's broken, they'll understand. Reporter: Who dug right in on the president. Now over 8 million people have signed up for obamacare, which sounds impressive until you realize Ashley Tisdale has 12 million Twitter followers. I got a lot of these tonight, so buckle up, governor Christie. Reporter: Chris Christie making an easy target. I'm sorry for that joke. I didn't know I was going tell it. You'll miss me when I'm gone. It will be harder to convince the American people that Hillary was born in Kenya. Reporter: This that has been around for 100 years. This year is different because right now, there are so many political TV shows. My favorite part was seeing the politicians and then seeing the people who play the politicians on TV. Your favorite part wasn't the adorable prom picture? He asked me. The dress worked. It was beautiful. You looked fantastic. Like Cinderella. Thank you so much. I was going to say that, too. No, you weren't. Bianna is my girl. I got you. The president was funny. I twachd whole thing. I was there with you, but in my apartment. Thank you, Sara.
