Liberal Comedian Flops at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner

Lots of comedy at last night’s Nerd Prom, also known as the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, in case you missed it, below are two videos, the first is the Speech By President Obama, below that is the one given by host Larry Wilmore which some say went “over the line:”

Some say Wilmore’s jokes went over the line, instead of comedy they were just plain mean, the NY Post said he bombed with jokes such as::

  • “Man, everybody hates [score]Ted Cruz[/score]. Even O.J. Simpson said, ‘That guy is just hard to like.’”
  • “There’s a joke going around the Internet that Ted Cruz is actually the Zodiac Killer. I’m not making that up. Come on, that is absurd. Some people actually liked the Zodiac Killer.”
  • “John Boehner came out of retirement and described Ted Cruz as Lucifer in the flesh. Lucifer. I mean that is not fair, man. Lucifer is horrible — but he’s not the Zodiac Killer.”

Wilmore was very tough on CNN, drawing a middle finger from Don Lemon when he said“Some of America’s finest black journalists are here tonight. Don Lemon’s here, too.”

Other lines included:

  • “Speaking of drones, how is Wolf Blitzer still on television? Ask a follow up question! Hey Wolf, I’m ready to project tonight’s winner: Anyone that isn’t watching The Situation Room.”
  • “CNN’s here tonight. I have not watched CNN for a long time. I used to watch it back when it was a news network. I don’t know about you guys, but I cannot get enough of that CNN countdown clock. Now we can see exactly when they hit zero in the ratings.”

At one point Wilmore turns to the President and says, “You did it, my n*gga!”

When you watch the video below you will see the audience reaction to Wilmore’s speech includes  silence and groans, at one point he mutters. “You guys are tough, man,”
