tv Key Capitol Hill Hearings CSPAN May 1, 2016 6:00am-7:01am EDT
slogan has helped his campaign catch fire among young people -- feel the bern. that is a good slogan. hillary slogan has not had the same effect. let's see this. [laughter] i have said how much i admire hillary's toughness, her policy jobs, her experience. you have to admit it, though. hillary trying to appeal to young voters is a little bit like your relative who just signed up for facebook. america, did you get my
poke? is it appearing on your wall? . am sure i am using this right love, aunt hillary." it is not entirely persuasive. meanwhile, on the republican more things are a little -- how shall we say this? a little more loose. look at the confusion over the invitations to tonight's dinner. check whether they wanted steak or fish, but instead, a whole bunch of you wrote in paul ryan. [laughter] that is not an option, people. steak or fish. you may not like steak or fish,
but that is your choice. [laughter] meanwhile, some candidates are not pulling high enough to qualify for their own joke tonight. [laughter] the rules were well-established ahead of time. and then there is ted cruz. he has had a tough week. -- hoosierindiana country, stood on a basketball aurt, and called the hoop basketball ring. [laughter] what else is in his lexicon? baseball sticks?
football hat? but sure, i am the foreign one. [laughter] [cheering] then they conclude on a more serious note. i want to think the washington press corps, i want to thank carol for that you do. the free press is central to our i am just-- nah, kidding. you know i am going to talk about trump! c'mon! [laughter] [applause] we weren't just going to stop there, come on. [laughter]
although i am a little hurt he is not here tonight -- we had so much fun the last time. [laughter] surprising, you have a room full of supporters, celebrities, cameras, and he says no. is this dinner too tacky for the donald? what could he possibly be doing and said? eating a trump steak? tweeting insults to aela merkel? what is he doing? [laughter] the republican establishment is incredulous that he is there most likely nominee -- incredulous, shocking. they say donald he lacks
foreign-policy experience to be president. in fairness, he has spent years meeting with leaders from around sweden, missss argentina, miss azerbaijan. [laughter] area where hene could be invaluable, closing guantanamo. because trump knows a thing or do about running waterfront properties into the ground. [laughter] [applause] alright, that is probably enough -- i mean, i've got more material -- no, no. [cheering] i don't want to spend too much time on the donald. following your lead, i want to show some restraint.
because i think we can all agree that from the start, he has gotten the appropriate amount of coverage befitting the seriousness of th his candidacy. [laughter] i hope you are all proud of yourselves. to give his hotel business a boost, and now we are praying that cleveland makes it through july. [laughter] hm, hm. [laughter] hm. [laughter] and michelle, we have decided to stay in d.c. for a couple more years -- thank you. this is where our youngest daughter could finish high stayl, and michelle can closer to her plot or she has a
ready made plans to see them every day -- take a look. [laughter] decision has actually presented a dilemma because traditionally, presidents do not stick around after they are done . it is something i have been brooding about a little bit. take a look. staying for's are two years after they leave office -- >> about to go from commander in chief to couch commander -- what am i going to do for two years? >> you have a real dilemma, mr. president. which do you like better, these are these? >> they are the same. need to focus here. >> mr. president, you have to be practical.

enormous responsibility end i realize it is an enormous challenge at a time when the economics of the business sometimes incentivized been over and when controversy and conflict is what immediately attracts viewers. the good news is, there's so many of you pushing against ofse trends and as a citizen this great democracy i am grateful for that. around theo a time world when some of the fundamental ideals of liberal democracies are under attack and when notions of objectivity and free press and fact and evidence are trying to be undermined. and in some cases, ignored and harley. it is not climate, enough just to give people eight megaphone and that is why your is mored responsibility
important than ever. notever is true does require you shutting your objectivity. in fact, it is the essence of good journalism. theffirms the idea that only way we can build consensus, the only way we can move forward as a country, the only way we help the world amended itself is by agreeing on a baseline of fact when it comes to the challenges that face us all. this night is a testament to all of you have devoted your life to that. to push, to shine a light on truth every day. want to close my final white house correspondents' dinner by saying thank you. proud of what you have done. it has been an honor and privilege to work side-by-side

anthony anderson is here from ish."it show "black which was also my nickname in high school. they called you, didn't they mr. president? c-span has caring this live. yeah. which is ironic because most of the viewers are not. it is true, guys. c-span is the number one network among people who died watching tv and no one found that met yet. no, but it is good to be on c-span. i am glad i am not on your rival hdmi-1.""no input that was for me.
i have not watched cnn for a long time. i used to watch it back when it was a network. i don't know about you guys, but i cannot get enough of that cnn countdown clock. now we can see exactly when they hit zero in the ratings. [boos] a: and not to throw in a shape, thefox news network is highest rated network among viewers who do not know what "shade" means. beyondied to convince saying that miss america was anti-tops. come on. at most she is anti-pants. filejust renamed the keli
"becky what the good hair." lemonade? lemonade, mr. president? ok. msnbc here tonight. now stands for "missing a significant number of lack ." respondents i heard they put chris hayes on probation because they thought he was related to isaac hayes. that is wrong. msnbc got rid of so many black people, i thought boko haram was running that network. what is going on? i should say, some of america's finest black journalists are here tonight. don lemon is here, too. hey, don. how's it going?
alleged journalist don lemon, everybody. al sharpton i think was here tonight. is a hillaryd al supporter. you do not put a relaxer in your hair for 40 years and not feel the bern. it is impossible is what i am saying. next to alsitting sharpton, it is ok to feel the bern. we cleared it. promised to put harriet tubman on the $10 bill but now we have to wait until 2034 the $20 bill. yeah. women have not been this d.c. by a bill since cosby. [boos] a: oh, like i did it. ben carson praised andrew
jackson saying he was a tremendous president. from the grave, jackson said, what did that jigaboo say? that is what he said. that is what he said. i am just reporting. i'm just reporting, mr. president. aboo"?rry say "jig i did. i honestly did. 2016 has been eight b. "b." we lost prince. or as hillary clinton says, my favorite singer, my favorite singer! and now -- is back to doing what he does best, manning the pottery booth at the craft fair.
chris christie was supposed to be here tonight. he, his wife, and donald yours dry-cleaning. chris lost a lot of weight recently, didn't he? he said he eliminated everything from his routine that was not necessary. like his self pride hand dignity. -- and dignity. senator bernie sanders is here tonight. senator. i am surprised, you never come to these things. he usually goes to the white house early bird's correspondent dinner. he recently had a hernia operation. they say it is his own fault for the helps of the disenfranchised. you up to stretch before you do that, senator. confused on bernie
sanders's stance on guns. he seems to be anti-gone everywhere except vermont. open --[ whispers ] there are no black people in vermont. been hanging around with mike. laura's hillary clinton calls him, super-predator might. bernie sanders gets knocked for his age which is kind of unfair. it has, isn't it? sanders's that bernie first campaign slogan was "fire." old, whenders is so god said "let there be light,"
arnie said, let's conserve energy and sit in the dark. but it is a tight race between senator bernie sanders and hillary clinton. hillary was flustered when a personives matter confronted her. i have not seen a white person be that upset about a black person since kelly ripa. hillary has had some awkward interactions with black lives matter. you know it is bad when her immediate responses, can't we talk about benghazi? please? in troubleers got for saying hillary clinton was unqualified. hillary is extremely qualified. -- when youtor factor in all of her policy flip-flops, she is one of the buzz qualified to ever run for president. donald trump said if hillary clinton were in man, he did not
think she would get 5% of the vote. ok. all right. first of all, if hillary clinton were suddenly a man, her biggest problem will be trying to find a bathroom she can use in north carolina. right? donald trump, donald trump says he is going to try to be more presidential. it is true. he is serious about. he says that now when he talks about his genitalia during the debate he is only going to talk --.t it as his president i can't understand why everybody treats donald trump with kid gloves. then i remember they are the only gloves that will fit his stupid little baby hands. oh, man. actually, donald trump, his campaign is inspiring.
man to violence. everybody turns on the tv, sees family -- sees trumps campaigning for him. have you seen morning joe? seriously. morning joe has their heads up ass so far, they bumped into chris christie. i'm not lying. you know that is true. donald trump looks like the rich dad in every episode of law and order where the frat kid accidentally strangles a curveball's top dozen tea -- where the frat kid accidentally strangles a hooker. not surprised donald trump is happening to america because i watch movies.
i do. every time there is a black president, something always comes to the story that hurts. always. it is true. ted cruz is about to stay in the race. man, everybody hates ted cruz. even oj simpson says, that guys just hard to like. this is true. this is true. there is a general and run the cruz is that ted actually the zodiac killer. i am not making that up. that is absurd. some people actually liked the zodiac killer. a string ted cruz got of wins and endorsement and then everybody remembered who ted cruz is. the zodiac killer.
ted cruz got zero delegates in new york, which is actually five more than i thought he would get for the zodiac killer. john boehner came out of described tedand cruz as lucifer in the flesh. lucifer. that is not there. that is not fair, lucifer is horrible but he is not the zodiac teller. heidi cruise revealed that after they got married, ted bought something like 100 cans of soup. not making your self look less like the zodiac killer, ted cruz. i don't even think ted cruz wants to be president. all right, that is enough. ted cruz actually announced that carly uribe as his vice
presidential pick. and he is not even a nominee at. you see this, right? who does that? except the zodiac killer. no, but see. think how strange it is. vice president? that does not make sense because their own colors always work alone. if you thought about this, but if carly fiorina were vice president, she would only be a hard eat away from being zodiac killed. away from being zodiac killed. mr. president, you have seven months left and we should enjoy every moment of it. soak again, people. i don't know when were getting a black resident again. i mean, they will not even let morgan freeman be president and
movies for a while anymore. is going to be different for you guys. nobody to wash the dishes or change the bed linens, sleep the floors. you are going to miss joe biden. i just got a note for the president say, if you want another drink you better order now because the bartleby closing down. of course, they said the same thing about guantanamo so you have another eight years. he made that joke. just think, mr. president. less than one year, you will be playing golf every day. things can't be that much different. this is your last year in office, right? so your legacy begins. some want to talk about when you're leaving behind and i don't mean the black jesus in the lincoln bedroom.
make sure you take all of your culturally specific items with you so you can get your security deposit back, mr. president. quick impression of the next president moving in, "what is cocoa butter?" i have to say, what it is all said and done mr. president, after eight years in the white house, we are really going to miss michelle. we really are. thank you for being a good sport, mr. president. all jokes aside, let me just say how much it means for me to be here tonight. i voted for the present because he is black. i agree with the policy that he is black. he seems black, i am good. they say, what about iraq? i
say, is he still black? but behind that joke is a humble appreciation for the historic implication for what your presidency means. when i was a kid, i lived in a country where people could accept a black quarterback. about that. and black man was brought by his mere color not good enough to lead a football team. your time, mr. president, when a black man can lead the entire free world -- [applause] larry: words alone it me no justice. so, mr. president, i am going to say, yo barry.

[captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2016] >> with that i just have two more words to say. obama out. host: and that was how president obama signed off last night saying an early good-bye to the media at his eighth and final white house correspondents dinner. a few thousand journalists, government officials, business leaders and hollywood types rubbing elbows at the washington hilton. and they do this every year. but how do you see it? is it just an innocent night of fun or do you think the media get just a little too close to the people they cover? what's your take on this so-cal
