Jimmy Kimmel at the Correspondents Dinner

Hosting last night's White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington, ABC late night host Jimmy Kimmel had plenty of one liners targeting politics, politicians and the media.

Some of 'em targeted the president. For example:

"Mr. President, remember when the country rallied around you in hopes of a better tomorrow? That was the best one yet." 
"There's a term for guys like President Obama... probably not two terms... but, there is..." 
"Even some of your fellow Democrats think you're a push over, Mr. President. They'd like to see you stick to your guns. And if you don't have any guns, they'd like to see you ask Eric Holder to get some for you."
Obama's childhood sampling of canine cuisine also worked its way in: 
"Last week, we learned the President's two favorite steaks are ribeye and seeing-eye."
And Kimmel had a line regarding American opportunity: 
"It doesn't matter if you're black like President Obama, or white like President Obama or red like President Obama's agenda..."
Yes, there are also digs on Republicans as well. Some hit harder than others. Kimmel's presentation is available on YouTube.
