This year's White House Correspondents' Dinner simply did not hold back.

No one was safe from jokes and epic burns all night. The night's host, Cecily Strong, went after everyone from Libertarians (which according to Strong is just a "Republican you have to block on Twitter") to President Obama himself ("Your approval rating is at 60 percent and your gray hair is at 80 percent... You’re a lot like Madonna — you’re both giving the country so much, but in like a year and a half. You’ve gotta stop.")  

But in case you missed it, here were some of the best moments from the 2015 White House Correspondents' Dinner. 

Cecily Strong Is The Perfect Host 

The Saturday Night Live comedian did not hold back with her jokes and it was glorious. It' was way too hard to pick just one favorite burn from the night, so we've narrowed it down to two

"I’m not gonna tell you politicians how to do politics… that’s not my job. That would be like you guys telling me what to do with my body, like, can you imagine?"


"[The Secret Service is] the only law enforcement agency in the country that will get in trouble if a black man gets shot."

Plus, Strong made all the journalists in the room take the absolute best pledge ever, regarding 2016 election coverage. 

"I solemnly swear not to talk about Hillary's appearance because that is not journalism. Also, Cecily Strong looks great tonight."

Oh Cecily, can you pretty please host the correspondents' dinner every year? Or at least go back to hosting Weekend Update on SNL

Keegan-Michael Key Serves As The President's Anger Translator 

In one of the funniest moments of the night, President Obama invited Keegan-Michael Key from Key & Peele onto the stage to serve as his "anger translator."

In the sketch, the President would calmly make an observation, which Key would then "translate" into his true, and typically very angry thoughts. Our personal favorite translation was the one about the President's thoughts on Hillary Clinton, "Khaleesi is coming to Westeros!"

The President Reveals His Bucket List

President Obama addressed the fact that his time in office will soon be coming to an end by revealing his bucket list during his speech, well sort of... 

"Well, I have something that rhymes with 'bucket list,'" President Obama said. "Take executive action on immigration? Bucket. New climate regulations? Bucket, it's the right thing to do."
