Celebrities Line Up For Dinner In DC

Yes, the president's got jokes.
He was clearly enjoying the role of 'Comedian in Chief' Saturday at the White House correspondent dinner – an annual black-tie gala for journalists, politicians and Hollywood-types.

Before the night was over, President Barack Obama had everyone laughing at some well-placed political barbs. But our won Betty Nguyen and TJ Holmes may have gotten the last laugh this morning.
Take a look:

Wake up with CNN Newsroom Saturday and Sunday starting at 6 am ET/3 am PT.

    I would love to interview the 35 percent your poll says that the President should not joke! Who are these idiots, laughter is perhaps the one thing that keeps us all sane and lets the President relax. Even, the Republicans biggest goof was funny once and a while. I am however convinced that a percentage of Americans are plain stupid. I am willing to bet that if a poll asked "should people to allowed to breath the air" there would be a higher than you think percentage of people saying no......thus the plain stupid. As for me.....Keep it up Mr. President, you are doing a great job.

    Michael Vick should join the NFL with the Cleveland Browns and hang out in the dog pound for awhile. Im sure Cleveland will let him play but not let him forget. From a loyal Bengal Fan.
