Watch: Biden Gets Brutally Roasted by 'SNL' Comedian at White House Correspondents Dinner

Share

President Joe Biden’s age became a gag line Saturday night at the annual White House correspondents dinner.

Colin Jost, who hosts the “Weekend Update” segment on “Saturday Night Live,”  threw some zingers Biden’s way.

“I hope tonight will be a night to remember … for most of us,” he joked, according to USA Today, making fun of Biden’s widely known memory problems.

After a screen showed Jost when he was a high school reporter, he had another age-related joke.

“You can’t do [that] for President Biden because the technology wasn’t invented when he was in high school. It’s not really fair,” Jost said, according to The Hill.

Do you think Biden will lose in November?

Jost even invoked the name of  his “SNL” partner — African-American comedian Michael Che — as a comedic prop to mock Biden’s dismal poll numbers among the traditional Democratic voting bloc (as well as mock the television journalists in the audience).

“Like many of you here tonight, I pretend to do news on TV. My ‘Weekend Update’ co-anchor Michael Che was going to join me here tonight but in solidarity with President Biden, I decided to lose all my black support,” he said, eyes shifting to gauge the reaction of the room, as shown in a post on X.

The scandal of cocaine found in the White House last summer became a joke.

“I love Washington. Last time I was here I left my cocaine at the White House. Luckily President Biden was able to make good use of it at his State of the Union,” Jost said.

The Hill noted that Jost did not confine his barbs to Biden.

“Senator Bernie Sanders is here because he’s not the type to pass up a free, hot meal,” Jost said.

Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. had his turn as well.

“By the way, President Biden, isn’t it crazy that he’s only our second Catholic president and what’s even crazier is that in just a few short months, we’ll have our third in RFK Jr,” Jost said. “I am kidding, like his vaccine card says, he doesn’t have a shot.”

But if it was all humor on the inside of the event, it was not on the outside, where a mass of protesters gathered to claim that media organizations were doing too little to cover the war in Gaza and ignoring the deaths of journalists in the fighting, according to The Associated Press.

“Shame on you!” protesters shouted to the arriving reporters and their guests.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 

 

That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.

 

Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.

 

The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

 

All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.

 

Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 

 

A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.

 

We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight? 

 

Sincerely,

Josh Manning

Deputy Managing Editor

The Western Journal
