Larry Wilmore Elicits Mixed Reactions With His Speech At The White House Correspondents’ Dinner

Comedian and Comedy Central’s Nightly Show Host Larry Wilmore may or may not have brought down the house while hosting last night’s 2016 White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington, D.C.

He cracked many jokes at the expense of President Barack Obama and other politicians, and had lots of sharp one-liners about the media. But the crowd was feeling pretty uncomfortable for much of the time. However, many folks at home loved the speech so who’s to say if it was a rousing success or a total flop? I personally think it was flipping great.

A couple of jokes that may have “gone too far” were:

  • “Welcome to Negro Night here in Washington. Or as Fox News will report, ‘Two thugs disrupt elegant dinner in DC.’”
  • “Nice to be here, though, at the White House correspondents’ dinner where, as you know, they’re gonna call it next year, ‘Donald Trump Hosts a Luxurious Dinner Paid For By Mexico.'”

What are your thoughts on the matter?

Why don’t we look at Obama’s face during the speech and make up our minds that way:

I dunno that is a big ass smile across ole Bama’s face there.


Whatever Larry, we still love you and so does Barack, the coolest motherf*&^ing president who ever lived.
