President Ashley Johnson opened the evening with some lighthearted jokes, poking fun at her own presidency:
“Welcome to the 2023 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, or as I like to call it, the one night where I can tell jokes without worrying about impeachment. I mean, what are they going to do, impeach me twice?”
Senator’s Stand-Up Routine
Senator John Smith took to the stage for a stand-up routine that brought the audience to tears with laughter. Here are some of his best jokes:
“I’m a senator from Ohio, which means I’m constantly battling for the silver medal of the Midwest. But seriously, folks, Ohio is a great state. It’s like living in a snow globe, except instead of snow, it’s just cornfields.”
“I have to give a shoutout to my fellow colleagues in Congress. You guys know how to really bring the drama. I mean, it’s like a live episode of ‘The Real Housewives of D.C.’ Sometimes I feel like I need a glass of wine just to watch C-SPAN.”
Comedian Jason Anderson closed out the evening with a roast of some of the biggest names in Washington. Here are a few of his most memorable jokes:
“I heard Speaker Jones was looking for a new hobby, so I suggested he try crocheting. You know, because he’s already quite skilled at weaving a web of lies.”
“Vice President Rodriguez is like a superhero, but instead of fighting villains, he just fights the urge to take a nap during meetings.”
The 2023 White House Correspondents’ Dinner was a night to remember, filled with jokes and laughter that brought politicians and journalists together in a time of political divide. From President Ashley Johnson’s opening remarks to Jason Anderson’s closing roast, the evening provided a much-needed break from the seriousness of Washington.
