We have all watched the infamous first African – American elected President take the world by storm as not just the United States Of Americas President, but President Barack Obama represented hope in a people across the globe. At the White Houses Correspondents’ Association Dinner, hosted by Comedian Larry Wilmore, the tension in the air is lifted with jokes targeting the media, the current Presidential Candidates and of course Donald Trump. In my opinion Donald brought the jokes upon himself. Larry Wilmore did drop a lot of subliminal bombs that the public would say needed to be said. He also quoted “Black Lives Matter.” See full video of Larry’s intro here. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/larry-wilmore-white-house-correspondents-dinner-video_us_
POTUS mentioned names from Prince George to Judge Garland and of course his better half the First Lady of The United States Michelle Obama. Celebrities from Will Smith, Kerry Washington, Rachel McAdams, singer Aretha Franklin and model Kendall Jenner were in attendance. News is POTUS slayed his dinner speech leaving people laughing wondering and star struck, including Kendall Jenner. Kendall Jenner, who was reportedly in awe of the President earned her right to be there being an advocate to “Rock The Vote.” At the end of the dinner, POTUS asked her to say hi to her sister Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West for him, all she could reply with was a reported “OK.”
Kendall Jenner seems like an unlikely guest to attend a White House Correspondence dinner, but the young model has been an advocate for the”Rock The Vote Campaign” and reportedly makes $300,000 per Instagram post. Reaching young female voters and minorities across the world she was a great candidate to push the voting campaign. The President plans on staying in Washington D.C. for two years after his term is finished. We are eager to see him as just a celebrity in the eye of the news.
President Obama and the Speaker of The House, John Boehner had a hilarious spoof video where they where sporting “sunglasses.” You have to see it, it is funny to see The President being himself which is probably why his rating keep going up. Better late then never I guess….you can view the skit at The Washington Post http://wapo.st/1SSl8Du.
It will be sad to see President Barack Obama and his wife The First Lady Michelle Obama leave the White House. One thing The Obama’s did give this lifetime is hope, the courage and faith to say “I can do that too when I grow up” and the tools to help get them there. Through the historical implications Larry Wilmore mentioned we owe a lot to a President who took a lot of courage to stand up for a people of all races.
