President Obama at White House Correspondents' Dinner 2016 - Full Speech (USNews)

Barack Obama used his speech at his final White House Correspondents' Association dinner to poke fun at his potential successors. The US president did not hold back as Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Donald Trump were all at the receiving end of jokes at the annual black-tie dinner in Washington on 30 April.

"You have a room full of supporters, celebrities, cameras and he says no," the president said.

"Is this dinner too tacky for the Donald? What could he possibly be doing? Is he at home eating a Trump steak? Tweeting insults to Angela Merkel? What is he doing?

"The Republican establishment is incredulous that he is their most likely nominee. They say Donald lacks foreign policy experience to be president but in fairness, he has spent years meeting with leaders from around the world: Miss Sweden, Miss Argentina, Miss Azerbaijan," he jabbed, referring to Trump's former ownership of the Miss Universe beauty pageant.

President Obama also poked fun at the campaigning strategies of Democratic presidential candidates Sanders and Clinton.

...The White House Correspondents' dinner, an annual tradition begun by President Calvin Coolidge in 1924, is attended by journalists, media personalities, celebrities and politicians.
