“[The White House Correspondents’ Dinner] is the night when Washington celebrates itself. Somebody’s gotta do it.”

“Well, I have something that rhymes with bucket list.”

“Executive action on immigration? Bucket!”

“The Castro brothers are here tonight!”

“I look so old John Boehner already invited Netanyahu to speak at my funeral.”

“Some people still say I’m arrogant, aloof, and condescending. Some people are so dumb.”

“Dick Cheney says he thinks I’m the worst president of his lifetime, which is interesting because I think Dick Cheney is the worst president of my lifetime.”

On the biblical end of days: “Now that’s a legacy.”

On the drone crash landing on the White House lawn: *shows pic of Joe Biden with bat*

On his friendship with Biden: “We’ve gotten so close in some places in Indiana, they won’t serve us pizza anymore.”

“Usually the only people impersonating journalists on CNN are journalists on CNN.”

On Blackish: “Being blackish only makes you popular for so long.”

On Ted Cruz comparing himself to Galileo: “Now that’s not really an apt comparison. Galileo believed Earth revolved around the sun. Cruz believes that Earth revolves around Ted Cruz.”

And two gems from Luther:

“I’m not a scientist but I do know how to count to ten.”

To Obama: “You need counseling. I’m out.”
