White House Correspondents Dinner 2013: Obama, Conan Bring the House Down

Second term, baby.

Embracing his annual role as Standup Comedian-in-Chief, President Barack Obama certainly delivered the laughs at the 2013 White House Correspondents Dinner.

Walking out to DJ Khaled's "All I Do Is Win," Obama started off his speech joking "second term, baby" and noting, "I've got 99 problems and now Jay-Z is one."

The President also didn't hold back when it came to wife Michelle Obama's bangs in Photoshopped pics, or to his own notorious college pot smoking.

Weighing in on the success of the site BuzzFeed, he said "I remember Buzz Feed was just something I did in college around 2 a.m. [pause] It's true."

Perhaps Obama's best digs came at the media's expense, with NBC, Fox News, CNN, Dick Morris, Gallup and even the History Channel being skewered.

He took plenty of shots at himself, as well. On his aging rapidly in the White House, he said: "I'm not the strapping young Muslim socialist I used to be."

Referencing his trip to the George W. Bush Library last week, Obama said that some want him to build his in his birthplace ... but he'd prefer the U.S.

He chided Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) for his 2016 election ambitions while not even finishing one Senate term - a frequent criticism of Obama in 2008.

Obama and the event's host, Conan O'Brien, made for a formidable 1-2 punch. Check out Conan's remarks below and tell us who was funnier ...
